That is the alternative. Have you really never seen this?

Ahhh..... I've never seen it on an album. But I have seen it as a pack patch on someone's jacket at a show once !
Pretty cool, but the doctors are better!

Are you crazy? This is the classic original cover that got banned. This one is a thousand times better than the cartoonish alternate doctor artwork.

That's the dude. Holy crap. I'd wondered this for some time. Thanks!

Yes doctors are on the alternative cover. And original is 1000 times better.

Who did the old Autopsy covers?

What's the alternative art for Severed Survival? Got a link ?
The one I have is the zombie doctors learing over the patient....the alternative better not be better !


You have the alternative version. The original is the guy being torn apart by hooks and blades. I have always liked the surgeons much better, but many would disagree with me...

the talented fourteen year old who painted the cover of "obsessed by cruelty". if he had only finished the painting!!!


A 14 year old kid did the cover of that album!? I didn't know. The album cover looks finished to me. One of my favorite album covers, and albums of all time.

Kind of different from defining metal, considering he died 100 years before most of the previous covers were drawn.

shame he never reply to bands who ask him some artwork...pretty talented guy though!

my fave artists in 'extreme metal' are easily Moyen and Away. i dig Daniel Desecrator, Dennis Dread, Justin Bartlett's artwork as well... honestly, in metal, a VERY FEW know how to draw. most artwork i used to see are childish, even if i can feel the passion right behind (that's the most important i guess). i enjoy drawing but it's also a pain in the ass.

Speaking of cool art, I finally found my Watain poster from their 2008 North American run. I believe there were only like 40 of these, maybe 50.



Definitely want to frame it. Best show I've been to I think.
