I know we've done this before, but I'm fucked if I can find the thread.

I have to disagree with Cacophony, Massacre and Darkthrone. (The latter due to it being Iconic rather than an out and out good cover.)

How can you disagree with Cacophony!? lol

Do not, under any circumstances, discount this cover:

Album's pretty decent, though.

I dunno, I gess it is a little naff, but really shit? I wouldn't go that far.
It's got the dashingly handsome Jason Becker in his prime on the cover, so it could never be completely shit. :P

No, that's fair, the thread title is "Really shit album covers..." not a bit shit, not very good, or naff... I think there needs to be some restraint shown and decision around "really shit" or not if we're going to go there, so I think some of the Robit ones shouldn't count (but I guess he's just recalling all previous nominees - though most aren't "really shit")

(To my mind that Metal Church one is the worst one on the list, particularly as this was supposed to be a slightly more mature response to the Black album from a band struggling to stay "relevant" following the explosion of grunge. To be fair, musically, it's got some good songs on there. Image/promotion wise... Holy fuck...)

Ah, so we're filtering it down. Ok. Can't wait for the Really, Really, Really Shit Album Covers thread then!

Come on, they're all shit. Except for Devastatin' Dave, obviously.

Fair.

In that case, shit album covers should also include -

And this stinker cannot be ignored. The song manages to be even worse than it's cover art, somehow...

Fuck off, killer sleeve.

Virtual XI and Dance Of Death, appalling. Fear Of The Dark is a good concept and nice nighttime tree rendering it's just a shit 'Eddie'. But The X Factor sleeve? Again, it's not Eddie, but it's a compelling and unusual image.

The worst offender for me is this sort of vacuous cop-out computer spod bollocks:

And Belus, obviously.

I don't mind The X Factor actually. it was an attempt at something conceptual and different. it's not great, but it's not horrible either imo.

'Dance Of Death' would have looked good if it was actually finished!
