Album Cover Art

Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 6:10 AM

I enjoy album cover artwork. Really, I do.

A lot of thought goes into album covers and, when done well, they can be every bit as important to capturing the moment, mood and meaning of a band's intention as the recorded music does.

    Because when the album came out there was alot of people making fun of it. Saying it's similar to a female body part sorta kinda, lmao.

    But nonetheless, I like the cover.

    But here's what James Hetfield said,

    " 'Death Magnetic', at least the title, to me, it's… It had something to do with… It started out as kind of a tribute to people that have fallen in our business, like Layne Staley [ALICE IN CHAINS] and a lot of the people that have died, basically — rock and roll martyrs of sorts. And then it kind of grew from there. Thinking about death… some people are drawn towards it, and just like a magnet, some people are drawn towards it, [and] other people are afraid of it and push away. And the concept that we're all gonna die sometimes is over-talked about and then a lot of times never talked about — no one wants to bring it up; it's the big white elephant in the living room. But we all have to deal with it at some point. So that's kind of the subject matter."

    I've always liked this cover. Dogs leave signals for one another on fire hydrants. Clever.

    WOW! That is one happy dwarf.





    I love how there's a bunch of politicians on it.


    In our life there is "if"
    In our beliefs there is "lie"
    In our business there is "sin"
    In our bodies there is "die"

    I assume a child did this.



    Really hope the album is better than the artwork.

    I guess I wasn't the only one that thought the cover kinda sucked.

    They released a revised version of it.



    Less Disney. Much better.
