That's not a metal album, though I do agree that it's pretty stupid. Even all the artwork in the booklet is just random grey paint strokes.

To be fair, it more or less is if you look at the lineup. I'm assuming that's post-Roots era Sepultura there

The original version of Attack's Destinies of War is one of those atrocities that once seen, it can no longer be unseen.

Just...look at it:

Thankfully, the revised artwork on the 1993 reissue is miles better.

Attack has more of those pearls:

A pillar dude fighting his left dragon arm. Atleast it's better drawn.

But one of my fav records got one of the most ugly covers I own:

The new Lord Mantis album Death Mask

I usually don't mind nasty album covers, but this one is just terrible. Their last album, Pervertor, did a much better job.

This one always cracks me up. I'm assuming those winged sperms with faces are the band members but I can't tell. Pretty decent album, though

I remember "LMAO" when I saw this cover in print at stores. Good E.P. though, never followed Savage Grace much after the debut.

I would put some covers of modern shitcore bands; but this thread would be flooded
Most modern bands not only suck but cant make a cover worth the name.

Usually a forest, city or just the band photo.
No creativity

Even the material itself is ghey mostly.
