Cover Art Battle

Cover Art of the Month: June – Týr, Jungle Rot, A Pale Horse Named Death, Shraphead

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 at 6:57 PM (PST)

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? Unfortunately, with the growth of iTunes and Pandora it seems easier and easier to overlook album cover art in general, but in the world of Heavy Metal we’re here to remind you that this art form is still alive and well!

Each Tuesday we will present to you the best album covers of the week and draw focus into what makes each cover so f’ing rad. June has now passed us by and now it’s up to you to determine who is “June’s Cover Art of the Month”! Check ‘em out and VOTE!

What album cover deserves June's highest metal art honor?

  • Týr – “The Lay Of Thrym” (Napalm Records) (47%)
  • Jungle Rot – “Kill On Command” (Victory) (36%)
  • A Pale Horse Named Death – “And Hell Will Follow Me” (SPV / Seamhammer) (12%)
  • Shraphead – “Blind & Seduced” (Metalville) (5%)
