ITT: Best album covers.
Doesn't matter what genre, just cool, interesting CD covers.
I absolutely love hand painted covers from classic metal bands, they're gorgeous.
WTF! This has been my background for the last couple months...and this pic is backwards.
My favorite black metal band is Living Colour.
not really epic or badass or even "orginial" but i just found this one fun and simple
I love the style of all teir cover
Cheezy af but gold
I'm actually surprised that wasn't more controversial. Kiddie porn and pedophilia were in the media enough by the early 90s that I'm surprised there wasn't a lot of public outrage over it.
this by far, best ever
maybe because "is just a baby who swim" not somehting like an old asshole who fuck a poor young little preteen
Yea, I get that, but the public have gotten outraged and gone full retard over much less.
This is a real album cover? You have got to be kidding me?
Mastodon is the fucking tits.
Anyone have the full artwork for Once more around the sun?
maybe people of art take it like: "huh you don't understand the reality behind all this, is like, huh, a critic about the world and his economy, like, we don't control anything like a baby in the water but all you see is the money, and the hook is the society who try to guide us more and more further to get it" or i don't know, really
The Dead Kennedys got arrested and put on trial over using it as the Frankenchrist album cover. That was actually part of their defense. H.R. Geiger's art was readily accessible to anyone including children at fine art galleries, and in art books at the library, yet it somehow became obscenity being peddled to children, once someone put it on a punk rock album.
The funny thing is the picture they choose to replace it with, such awkward poses kek
I listened to the as a kid but I didn't know that, thanks bruh
Thats their worst album...and its still pretty good!
Np. Tipper Gore was the one behind the whole thing too. Jello actually went on Oprah to debate her on censorship, and Oprah pretty much let Tipper talk as much as she wanted, but kept interrupting Jello.
was gonna post that myself. The music pretty much narrates whats happening on that image.
This ones pretty dope, its satan hitting the bong, whats not to like?
I only recently discovered them. Pretty fucking impressive to be honest. The best 80s metal in over 25 years
Art is dead... Taboos are misplaced... People are dumb... I'm not a robot...
Great fucking album anyway....
No prob. I didn't think about what I was posting. I can see how it could be confusing.
Agree. Another cover. Blind faith. Older girl.
those kind of covers is like you tell a kid to draw the most badass shit he can do... a winged robot-muscular-skeleton riding a dragon-bike with circular saws on the wheels on a postapocalyptic scenario... you can love the music or the band, but you CANT deny the cover is kinda cringeworth man.
Judas priest has alot of covers better than that. Look to stained class, screaming for vegeance, turbo lover and defenders of faith. Such a piece of art
I think Peace Sells was a better cover. I agree about Rust though.
fits the theme of the album really well
Ew what the frouck. I didnt know it was actually jizz and blood? Whoa isnt Metallica supposed to release PG album covers? That is RATED X right there. That is really Lewd of them...And Reload had piss and blood too. EW WHAT THE FUCK? And it is just so awkward that the album also got shit reviews too....ew what the fuck?
Can't believe no edgelord has posted this yet. Your slipping /b/.
I prefer porn covers than violence. Even the two things sound good
I know I mean release a absolutely uncalled for graphic album cover (in a sense) ...like for a good album at least. The whole thing just ended up seeming like an awkward, embarrassing piece of shit,,,that lasted for two albums
I will admit that Load was pretty shit. So was reload. RTL was my personal favorite.
Maiden had alot of good album covers.
Fuck yea! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVIfqsBokyE
You know, that was the closest thing to a serious album that Anal Cunt released.
Trips to go with that dubs sandwich.
Do you like American Psycho, Al?
>it was a pretty shit album too
This cover it literally the only thing I know about Basque culture--aside from the bombings that they are polite enough to warn people about beforehand, lest anyone get hurt due to being unaware--but it's seems pretty kick-ass.
witchfinder general is sick
Ever heard the Cornbugs? If you like Buckethead (or Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2/Choptop) you'd probably like them.
>this thread just leveled up
Grunge music had amazing album covers
Best i could do off google.
Every baroness album. Seriously some beautiful shit
