Who were the artists who defined the metal look through a huge body of work?

No, this isn't a "type the names of the most obscure artists you can think of to hope you look cool to your loser friends"; that thread is elsewhere.

This is for the Joe Petagnos, Derek Riggses, Dan Seagraves, Jos A. Smiths etc of metal. Am I missing any from that list?

you should really change either the thread title or the purpose of the thread, because they don't connect too well.

This is kinda off topic, but does anyone else picture the guy on the cover of Annihilation of Civilization & The Underworld when they think of Ed Repka? I even know what he looks like but I still think of that characterization.

Definitely Necrolord was important. I would also like to give credit to Andreas Marschall.

Derek Riggs is the king. Another favorite of mine is Rok.

I hate most of Ed Rekpa work to be honest. A few of the Megadeth covers and definitely "Scream Bloody Gore" are cool though.

Ketola is certainly the best there is today.

I think Jowita Kominska, Dmitar Nikolov, and, of course, Kris Verwimp all deserve at least a nod if we're talking about current artists, however, with the possible exception of Verwimp, they haven't played much of a significant role in the course of metal art history.
