Well I figured now or never, so I'm going to start by counting down my 5 favorite album covers of the year. Enjoy, and please suggest some lists for me to do, as I'm bored as hell right now.

5. Suffocation - Blood Oath

This album art is just plain brutal, and deserves to be mentioned on this list.

4. Blue Record - Baroness

How could you not appreciate this artwork. It's really different from most album covers you see.

3. Crack the Skye - Mastodon

This art is incredibly thought provoking, and I've never failed to be impressed with the artwork Mastodon puts out.

2. Cattle Decapitation - The Harvest Floor

Very awesome art that just makes you think about what the fuck is going on inside that building.

1. The Black Dahlia Murder - Deflorate

One of the most creative album covers I've ever seen. There's so much going on, but not too much to the point of overkill. I was researching more about this album only to discover that Tony Koehl had done the artwork. He's definetely one of the best artists I've seen in metal, and if you're curious, browse his myspace! http://www.myspace.com/tonykoehl

The BDM cover looks very Ed Repka-ish, that's always a good thing.

Pretty good list dude. These albums didn't make my top 10, but I do respect them as amazing albums. \m/
