When its bad, its really bad!

The question is can you really screw up on an album cover design? Really, an album cover should probably give you an idea of what to expect and maybe show the band so you can find some sort of personal connection and that maybe, just maybe they can deliver on the music fronts. In other words, an album cover should attract prospective buyers and if it’s cool, a band can grab customers before they even listen to the actual music. So what could make an album cover truly terrible?

We’re glad you asked, because we’ve come up with what are possibly the worst Heavy Metal album covers of all time for your viewing pleasure and amusement. This isn’t to say that all of the music is actually terrible, but you’ll have to suppress your gag reflex on some of these to even try and listen to the tunes. Hope you enjoy, in a weird kind of way.
