John Baizley

Yeah, he's the singer/guitarist for Baroness, but that's not what this thread's about. I'm talking about the album art he's been doing lately. I think he's quite possibly the most original metal cover artist of all time; his art is instantly recognizable and totally unique. Here's all the ones he's done that I've personally seen:

(Baroness- The Red Album)

(Skeletonwitch- Beyond the Permafrost)

(Darkest Hour- Deliver Us)

(Pig Destroyer- Phantomb Limb)


Thoughts? I say it stands at Baizley > Romano > Repka > Riggs.

Eh a bit too cartoonish for my tastes, but I can see why some people would like it.

Bout fucking time. He does all the other Baroness art too, he did a Municipal Waste t-shirt design, Kylesa shirt designs, the 2007 Sounds of the Underground logo design, artwork for the new Torche EP, and a bunch of other band shirts and shit. The dude is a master.

Not really my thing. But it's not bad by any means.

I don't think he's all that unique; he's just unique within the circle of metal album art. He does some really cool shit, but he reminds me of that kinda tattoo-hip style, I don't know what you'd call it, but my ex-girlfriend was into it, so that's why I've come in contact with it.

Yeah. I mean, we're all very used to b&w photos and comic book zombies by now.

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is why 90% of shitty bands are allowed to exist. I'm just looking for something a little bit different, and I happen to really like Baizley's stuff. There's plenty of "different" cover art that sucks as well.

I don't like it cuz its "unique", I like it cuz its sick and readily identifiable as a John Baizley piece.
