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
