Exciter - Unveiling the Wicked
I've always loved this cover. It's so metal, and yet there's something a tad different about it. No skulls, no goat heads, no pentagrams, no devil horns, just sheer terror in a mildly gruesome way. I remember yelling out "Exciter!" when Mark and I saw Trick Or Treat in the theater and Ragman's mom is sifting through his albums. Oddly enough, we were the only metal guys in the theater that day. The rest were just horror fans and guys with their girlfriends. Wasn't that crowded, to my recollection. But shit, to see this cover, Megadeth, Exodus and Impaler in that sequence was a quiet triumph for the underground then.
