Look forward to seeing what other album covers you select. I just created a list of my favourite ten album covers. I did contemplate including the Ghost album Opus Eponymous but it just didn't make my top ten. A very cool album cover, I agree.

Thanks The reason it'll be a slow process is because not very many really sink in as much as ones like these, but I'm sure I'll find more.
Doc Godin - 20.04.2012 at 12:27  
Cool idea. My favourite album cover of all time is High On Fire's Death Is This Communion. Oddly enough, it's also been my favourite album on and off over the past few years.

Thanks I checked it out, Death Is This Communion has a cool cover and it actually made me think of another one to add to the list that really got me when I first saw it.

I think I'm gonna throw my favourite album's cover on there as well
Mr. Doctor - 21.04.2012 at 00:36  
Probably my favorite cover at the moment is The Maniacal Vale... It's so... immense. Completely represents the music with it's fiery atmosphere.
!J.O.O.E.! - 21.04.2012 at 00:51  
Probably 'Kénôse' for me. I'm sure if I overthought it I could find others I liked more though. It's a bitch to find a decent picture of it though as they almost always get the colours wrong or miss out details.

Oh yeah, Agoraphobic Nosebleed's 'PCP Torpedo' reissue has immense artwork, as does Sunn O)))'s 'Black One' and The Axis of Perdition's 'Urfe'

[EDIT]

What the hell, sounds like a good excuse to hijack this list with my own one I did a while ago

I still think Love's burial ground is fucking ugly. Doesn't have any redeeming qualities at all.

I like Kenose but I still have no clue what it is.

Seems pretty clear to me that they're hearts, especially when you consider the contents of the artbook that comes with it.

The art booklet has a kind of abstract grotesque thing of the body going on. It's very cool, a nice package in general.

Oh yeah, I do remember some of that stuff from a youtube video. Cool shizzle... I'm still sad that I just own SMR,C.

Gotta fix that. Sadly, I promised myself to stay away from buying anything until I'm done with everything I own that I haven't heard/seen yet so it will take a while.

That doesn't even make sense. Isn't the whole idea of looking at something subjectively, like in basically every list on here, that it's a person's opinion? In my opinion it's unreal.

The fact he was able to go into such detailed description about what makes it a gem for him would suggest - subjectively - not everyone finds it to be shit.

Argh. 80% of the covers in that list made me cringe. I'm really sorry, we do not have the same tastes in this department I guess . I don't care how iconic in metal, how detailed, how deep, or how recognizable the cover is, it doesn't make something which looks hideous as well as transgresses every rule of design without offering a new take on them, look any better.

Yeah, I guess we have different tastes, that's okay. Even though I have learned plenty about the rules of art and design in school when it comes to looking at something I sort of ignore thinking about that stuff and just go with the gut feeling.

I'm gonna update this too, it's way too small at the moment. There's a lot more I could add. Maybe you will like some of my new additions

Yeah I didn't realise it was such an old list until I started complaining . I thought you were going to give me an artgasm.
About the rules bit, as I said, transgress them all you like, just bring something interesting to plate. That's why I found most of these just traditionally ugly .

Figures Joe would know. One of the best scenes in cinema history, no doubt.

As for the origins of the list picture... That is for me to know and for the rest of you lowly worms to wonder....

That video gave me a boner, and I'm straight as an arrow.

But seriously though, most of these covers are ugly and/or nothing special. The only good ones here I feel is Focus and Sulfur Aeon.

Carl Weathers went on. He didn't stop. I'll always remember his role in that stupid, yet funny on some level, movie, Happy Gilmore (the very poorly done prosthetic hand). And his own role in Arrested Development. I think he wouldn't have done any of those things if that scene in Predator had not become as kvlt.

Sasha Grey needs to not narrate every single action and thought that occurs to her in her films. It's a shame as she's pretty hot. She just won't shut up.

So In other words, unlike Ars you are saying that the only thing she's good at is sucking?

Ilham - 06.06.2014 at 04:41  
You guys are the ones going off topic, but if I comment on it, I'm going to get called out by a mod. But anyway: I think she should do a lot less of that crazy act. She err.. doesn't give enough time and attention to details. I mean, we get it, it's awesome, but the way she... almost looks like an autistic kid going apeshit when being asked to choose from too many flavours of lollypops. Oh dis one, no dis one, no dis, aghlaghlala, all of them at the same time, ggahajdsgahjaj give them to me oh yes oh yes hagdhjhagafaha.

This is more or less my opinion, too. Sadly, she was too talkative, which can get disturbing.

Well, I remember, growing up, there was that one certain Jeanna Fine lady who was extremely good at it. And DT Heather, of course. Took it like a lesson. But I don't have a favourite one just for the ways she blows. Although there are many I dislike because of the way they do .

Nope, she goes crazy even when there's only one sausage in the room. It was just much funnier to talk about the gangbangs.
