Fuck off, killer sleeve.

It is fucking excellent. Has a real cinematic quality to it.

Album's pretty decent, though.


If we had a poll for best music to shitest artwork ratio, then that should win. It's a weird album though, it's got a kind of 'rock sound' rather than a 'metal sound'.

1. Metal Church
2. The Human Factor
3. The Dark
4. Masterpeace
5. Blessing in Disguise
6. Hanging in the Balance

Then all the ones with the other singer. Although the first one was the best.

Hanging in the Balance was still a good album though, but Metal Church had a very high standard of songwriting.

Has nobody post THAT album cover yet?

I had high hopes for that Alas album, classical singer + Rutan should have been good, but it wasn't, largely because her singing was pretty crap.

That one in the OP is Temtris-level bad. I like how it looks like it was made in 1997 on a home computer someone had just figured out how to use - but then they've stuck an iPhone in there to make it dead contemporary, like. Which just makes it worse and even less excusable.

Great album though, I saw them supporting Saxon in 1984.

I just could never fathom what the thinking was here.

I've still got the split demo (Alas and Hate Eternal) somewhere. The fem vocals in Alas didn't work there either. Didn't realize it ever got an album release.

We haven't got a budget for an album cover, probably.

Something about being behind the eight ball? Old woman, pension cuts, terminal illness, bout of bad luck?

There is so much of this shit about, album covers that looked shit even when Elegy had them back in the 90s.

Ah the days of CGI when people didn't or couldn't do bump or displacement maps to add the illusion of texture so everything is just super fucking smooth like marble.

To me they always just screamed "this album doesn't matter."

Because I just passively-aggressively copied and pasted the ones from the last "shit album covers" thread in feeble protest at the constant repetition of threads.

What was that album cover posted on here way back? It was a dreadful 3D computer image job, and the person responsible for it signed up here to defend it.


That would be Temtris:
