I'm guessing Bathory's "Blood, Fire, Death" and "Hammerheart" albums are exceptions to the 'art museum paintings aren't appropriate' idea? Cool

I somehow thought this thread is about unfitting "art museum level paintings" for records, but as all are posting crappy-but-at-the-same-time-funny covers, here we go:

consuming impulse has a ridiculuos cover, but i kinda like it in a high school study hall drawing kind of way.


I can only imagine how sinister and killer the original artwork would be if Roadracer did not reject it back then...

On the inlay of the "Chronicles Of Chaos CD" it says: "cover drawing (original cover idea for Consuming Impulse) by Patrick Mameli".

Heard good things about the kid, but the last few tapes were kind of a let down.

Even though I own the "Chronicles..." CD, never paid closed attention to that detail. I thought that this was just a sketch while the band had an even more elaborated artwork. Nice to point that out!

Me too. I also thought about a different sketch similar to the one used later on the LP/CD.

That original drawing for Consuming Impulse is pretty great, but I like the one it was released with.

Worst cover art for good records goes to all of Razors LP's, with the exception of Malicious Intent. If I was to reissue them, they would all get new ones. I would just hire new artists to take the basic concepts and make them look cool.

Eye, that is a rather cool cover. I would fear the hair-cut of their basssit Psycopath, to be honest, haha... Great album.
