M-16- Locked and loaded
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.
