Here’s something a little different for you this week. Instead of videos, let’s go with pictures, namely, album covers, more namely, Iron Maiden album covers. Created by artist Derek Riggs, Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie the Head has graced every album cover on all of their releases. Below is the artwork for all of their major releases, check them out and vote for your favorite cover. Enjoy! Peace Love and Metal!!
This is too cute not to share. This Tumbler page is the best submissions of kitties superimposed into classic records. Not much to say other than the page is completely adorable and very well done. My favorites are the above Iron Maiden Killers cover and the Black Flag one. Link stolen from MetalSucks.net. Check it out!! Enjoy! Peace Love and Kitties!!!!
It’s that time of the year where all list loving bloggers start naming the best of 2011. To kick of my list-mania here are my picks for the best album art of 2011. Enjoy and let us know what some of your favorite album art was for this year! Peace Love and Metal!!!
I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Most of the time that’s easier said than done. I’ve purchased a decent share of albums based on the cover alone, some covers gave a good representation of what may be on the album, some misrepresented and I’ve been led to my share of “meh” albums. When you have an album with great artwork along with some great music contained within you have yourself a special package that pleased many of your multiple senses. And as an avid CD collector the album artwork is something special to me. Since many of you are already familiar with many of the classic album covers such as Master of Puppets, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath I’ll make a list(in no particular order) of more modern album covers from 2000 and onward from popular and lesser known bands(one per band).
What are your favorite album covers and how important is the artwork in an album to you? Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
