Come to think of it, most of Sabbath's album covers were awful.

I love the "Born Again Cover". To quote Geezer Butler "It's sh*t, but it's great".

^I remember that cover kind of freaking me out when I would browse through the metal section in the local music library when I was a kid. :-)

Yeah these are pretty awful but are still reflecting an endearing perfunctory attitude in their own cheesiness.

It's a tiny picture, i know.
This is the cover to an indie prog metal band (Jordan K. Rush)'s album The Three Reigns... it looks like the talented kid in 4th grade made it.

No . . .
its THAT Bad LOL . . .

it reminds me of a few of these:

In my top "5" fave Prog Metal Bands, "Fates Warning" are one of the Fathers of the Genre, but I still
remember a quote in the credits of "No Exit" where it said in the "No Thanks" area Tongue:
"For the 1st Album Cover Disaster" LOL
The 1st version:
Yikes! what terrible Fonts/Lettering too!

Then the 2nd:

Uh . . . the woman/witch doesnt looked too phased about being burned at the stake...
After these 2 versions, they yet again, released a version with just a Moon photo and
the FW Logo used for the next 2 albums Tongue

Then went back to the original for the Re-Master and created a new Logo (Used on "The Spectre Within"
Re-Master as well).  It be interesting to get it and see what they wrote reflecting back on the "Cover" LOL.


Age of Rebellion (AOR).
Heres a really talented Prog Metal Band from Germany, these guys looked like they were right out
of High School but their musicianship was really Professional:

Excellent Album, BAD cover Wink.
Apparantly they have 2 other albums I did not know about! They were somewhere between Dream Theater
and Dali's Dilemma, instead of what you'd think they'd sound like (German -i.e. Vandan Plas or Dreamscape).

And by the way,
These -including The Jordan K. Rush album DO look like a "Talented" 4th Grader or High School Kid drew
them . . .
Because back in Highschool (and 4th Grade) "I" drew like that! LOL Wink

. . . YUCK! what an embarrassing memory Embarrassed.

I've found most of FW's cover art to be pretty boring. But that's just awful. Who thought that was releaseable?
Lost respect for these archives when I saw Creed added, among other bands. Not going to be foruming here anymore. You can keep my reviews if you want.
