    Worst album covers

    by metalmaciejmetal » Fri Nov 20, 2015 4:46 pm

    The question is what are some great albums that have really crappy looking album covers. I was thinking about that on my way home, I was listening to Anthrax - Among the living. That's such a great album but what the hell is up with that cover? That seems to be true with a few Anthrax albums for that matter.

    Some other examples
    Black Sabbath - Sabotage
    Iron Maiden - Dance of death
    Grim Reaper - Fear no evil (there's probably tones from the early NWOBHM bands)
    Survivor 2016 and 2017

    Raven - The Pack Is Back (love the band but WTF were they thinking on this)
    Accept - Balls To The Wall
    Manowar - Anthology / Into The Glory Ride (based on the album cover should have been Into The Glory Hole)

    Fates Warning's "Night on Bröcken" is pretty awful. The art looks like it was drawn by a 7 year old.
