Looks like inspired by polish artist Zbigniew Beksinski. Check it out: http://flash.beksinski.com.pl/

Actually I'd say Verwimp has a unique ability for throwing away good art on bland or outright bad groups. You know how when you see a Seagrave cover you figure there's a 90% chance it's going to be a quality release, and a 25% chance it'll be a full-on classic? Verwimp is like the opposite of that - poor bastard. He has blown a couple of good ones on Sathanas, a completely useless band as far as I'm concerned.


Well, I would no blame Verwimp for that. He does covers for those who pay him, no matter what music they do. I´m sure Seagrave does the same. He nowadays asks for ridiculous sums, that´s why you don´t see his art on metal releases anymore.

Oh I'm sure it's not his doing at all, it's just unfortunate. I love many of his covers but I own very few of those albums because so many of them are just Sad .

yes - i agree.
this album rules and the staring eyes rule.
title track as well.

LOVE THIS ALBUM :

The tobes of hades
Lit by flickering torchlight
The netherworld is gathered in the glare
Prince by-tor takes the cavern
To the north light
The sign of eth is rising in the air
By-tor, knight of darkness,
Centurion of evil
Devils prince


I only got the ARCHIVES version

Too many to mention really. The first Black Sabbath album and Mortuary Drape's "All the Witches Dance" are on the top of the list though.

To me, good cover art is good cover art. Be it a black and white drawing, a photo or a intricate and highly detailed oil painting.

I really like Necrolords art. It has a way of dictating what you visualize when you listen to the record. I guess this is true of all cover art though, which is why shitty cover art is not good. It also means that a simple cover (thinking the Proclamation albums) isn't bad either as it leaves more to the imagination.

Some of the real classics posted so far, Onslaughts iconic Power From Hell is one of my all time favorites...yet to see mention of Satan's Cross by Nocturnal Graves, awesome cover for a real killer album.

Some of my faves. It helps if the album art conveys the title or name of the album/band. most of these covers do the job well.

Man, this thread is definitely not as entertaining as the Worst Album Covers one. This better start getting funny!

This is one of my favourites:


Must be one of the first snow/forest/landscape/mountain-covers used, at least by a Black Metal band.
