M-16- Locked and loaded

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This is the cover of Locked and loaded a 1988 release by fairly obscure New York based metal band M-16. So where we have a hooded, skeletal figure who is likely death. Yet death must not be as powerful as we once thought. He can no longer just make you fall over with a tap on the shoulder so he has obviously resorted to carrying an automatic weapon around as well. Just in case he has to take someone out that way. Now just so you don't think he is a cold stiff, death also carries a guitar around as well. You never know when an impromptu jam session will break out and someone will want death to jump in and rock out.

At least it's better than the Cherry Pie cover.

That's kind of like saying, "At least my band is better than Skrewdriver."

The artist was big on detail as well. If you look closely at death's left wrist you will see that is a studded bracelet he is wearing. if you look even closer at his left fingers you will see slight blood smudges. I have no idea what they are from. Also notice the white lines around death's head on his robe. Perhaps death had a white cat who liked to lay on his robe while death was in the shower.
