Me and Jay-Pee G were discussing this the other day and we thought it would be cool to show off some of your favorite cover art in a thread. And since most bands of these styles put alot of effort in having remarkably kickass cover art....i figure let's discuss it a bit. I figure we can all throw in some of our favorites and then after a bunch of great ones have been suggested....we will take a vote on to what the top ten album covers. Thus the thread title, "ERR Listeners Favorite Cover Art". Anyways, i'll throw out a couple to start us off......


DARK EMPIRE "DISTANT TIDES" - This one is my favorite that i can think of....i'll have to brainstorm a bit to see if there is anything that can top it.  Cool

INTO ETERNITY "BURIED IN OBLIVION" - This cover is just very well done. I have always loved it.  Wink

SYMPHONY X "PARADISE LOST" - A newer one that just is awesome....the artwork inside the cd booklet is even better! An "epic" one for sure.

Or with the back included....

And last but not least...

^^^^LMAO...LOL...LOL...LOL....Classicly Awesome right there! But seriously, gotta be one of the worst. HAHA!  Grin


Alright well that's a good start, let's see some of your favorites.  Cool

I'll have to think about this a bit more later, but the tow that immediately pop into my head are:

Rob Rock - Holy Hell

and

Tourniquet - Stop the Bleeding

Oddly enough, neither albums are here on ERR (though the Tourniquet one doesn't fit the station).

Very cool.  Cool Keep them coming. I want to see all the cool artwork that you can think of. Rock on Mojobie! Both you've come up with so far are very interesting. The Rob Rock one is awesome, and something about the other one that i like as well. Maybe it's the machine like hands comboed (is that a word?) with the seeping blood.  I've been known to buy a disc that i've never heard of just by seeing the cover art...and usually it turns out pretty good. Kickass Cover art usually means kickass music.

Let's see what everyone else has got.... Cool

Oh, and i hope you don't mind me putting the images in there for ya.  Wink

Yeah, no problem, I'm usually at work when I come here, so I don't have a lot of time to do things like this.

I'd like to say though, that Symphony X's "Paradise Lost" cover (the full one with the red tentacle eye monster thingie) is really good too, it's been my desktop background at home for more than 6 months.

I would have to say that an all time favorite for me would be...

http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/65/Among_Beggars_and_Thieves.jpg Among Beggars And Thieves By Falconer.

Another would be... Almah's Edu Falaschi http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_vhciIJDhDL8/StTFR0gOrtI/AAAAAAAABIM/LpEi_02SiSM/s400/almah_almah.jpg
