I hope you enjoy this!

BTW I should have titled the thread 'best metal album covers' because that's what it is.

Nice list, but I think some of these should have made it too.













But I def agree with Powerslave

Pretty good list, happy to see Killers so high as I still think despite being re-printed way too many places that's the coolest Eddie.

My two favorite metal covers are Mastodon's "Leviathan" and Mercyful Fate's "Don't Break the Oath". Both exceedingly simple covers with one stark image that tells you exactly what kind of music is contained inside, and just makes you go "Whoa, awesome."

I'd have included:





Altars of Madness I think is easily the coolest Morbid Angel cover (and release.)

Cool

I admit I lol everytime I see Morningrise appear on any list. I think it's great that Opeth make an album title that men can relate to.

That said, my favourite metal album cover:

Lol. I just love that Opeth cover.

And yeah Painkiller was in that list but I decided against it in the end.

Choosing The System has Failed over Painkiller is blasphemy.

Did you have a good time at the Maiden show?
