Invection-Demented Perception

Photobucket
I have always liked mazes for some reason so I kind of like that part of this cover. I don't get the part where the big ugly faces are either coming up or going down in some of the rooms of the maze in the background though.

Candlemass-Death, magic, doom

Photobucket

It kind of looks like a scribbled drawing and it's very basic. Still there is something about writing and the background that helps it work.

Dawnrider-Two

Photobucket

Skulls on album cover are a dime a dozen even today, but this varition on that idea looks pretty good to my eyes.

Post Mortem-Message from the dead

Photobucket

Ah... a perfect day. The sun is shining, the family is spending time together and the mail is being delivered by the walking dead. Brilliant cover actually.

My favorite and least favorite album covers of 2009

I'll get the worst out of the way first.

Photobucket
UDO-Dominator

It's like a sixth grader tried to draw the Terminator on the cover of their notebook and they failed badly. Nothing wrong with that if you are sixth grader, but there is something wrong with putting this on your album cover.

The best...

Wolfmother-Cosmic Egg

Easy choice. Beautiful cover that combines a fantastic object with a brilliant landscape. The pictures in the booklet are all equally wonderful.

Axxis-Utopia

Photobucket

This cover is well-drawn, but maybe a little too busy. The sea serpent has me thinking of Asia's debut. Then we have a bubble city, lightning and I am not sure they really needed people riding the sea serpent. It's like the artist had all these ideas and instead of concentrating on one concept they elected throw everything into one cover.

Leeches of Lore-s/t

Photobucket
I know that whenever I think of mythical kingdoms and castles that I always feel that they need some brightly colored, gigantic leeched to make them complete. Maybe not, but I like this cover for it's odd slightly odd take on the fantasy concept. Reminds me more of a late 70's/early 80's book cover than it does an album cover.
