    so i take it the covers of all metal albums are half-assed cartoons of some sort of weird fantasy-tinged freak scene?

    No I think you are thinking of the faggy emo indie hipster bands that pitchfork and /mu/ love...you know the ones where people have pie/drum things for faces and whatnot!!

    Guess you have never seen the manliness of a Man'o'War album cover!!

    You should see their lyrics!!

    for example....


    Every one of us has heard the call
    Brothers of true metal proud and standing tall
    We know the power within us has brought us to this hall
    There's magic in the metal there's magic is us all

    Heavy metal or no metal at all wimps and posers leave the hall
    Heavy metal or no metal at all wimps and posers go on get out "Leave the hall"


    Now the world must listen to our decree
    We don't turn down for anyone we do just what we please
    Got to make it louder, all men play on ten
    If you're not into metal, you are not my friend

    Heavy metal or no metal at all
    wimps and posers leave the hall
    Heavy metal or no metal at al
    l wimps and posers I said "Leave the hall"


    There's metal in the air tonite,
    can you hear it call If you ain't got the balls,
    to take it you can "Leave the hall"
    Heavy metal or no metal at all
    wimps and posers leave the hall
    Heavy metal or no metal at all
    wimps and posers leave the hall


    And they wear "Gloves of Metal"....probably the toughest band in history!!

    This is the new reissue of Dopesmoker. It is probably the best album cover of all time.

    Here's the cover from my noise band's latest album, Traveller on the Threshold:

    [​IMG]

    The original drawing is by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, a Belgian artist from many hundreds of years ago, waaaaay before copyright existed.
