The thing is that Narita is an awesome album but the cover is just ugly (like Fire Down Under)

Leprous Bilateral is a great album just has a bad album cover

and Black Sabbath's Technical Ecstasy, stupid innuendos Wink 

Metallica - Lulu (Need I say why?)



I know this isn't metal, but King Crimson's 'In the court of the crimson king' is probably the worst album cover I've ever seen Dead

Since we are talking about Pantera...



To be honest, I never liked any of this covers with a pic of the band... I prefer drawings!

lol

I I'm laughing so far. Looks like Linda Blair in the film The Exorcist. Ridiculous!

--------

Ps: I read that cited the cover of Metallica's Load. The cover of "Load" (Metallica) is a composite photo of bovine blood and semen, entitled "Semen and Blood III", 1990, the artist Andres Serrano. Already the cover of "Reload", created by the same artist, is made up of blood and urine.
