The best metal album covers of January 2020

Kicking the decade off with strong visual endeavors.

With January up and done with, we're off with this year's first entry of our monthly best metal album covers list. This month's collection welcomes a few familiar faces and few notable new ones, each radiating above a great album beneath. From Verwimp's hellishly good visuals for the speed metal on 666 Goats Carry My Chariot to the mammoth-like heaviness behind Sandra Havik's cover for Ryte, there's something for all to love this month, which includes the mighty fine return of legend Ed Repka. Take a gaze at the artistic feats below and proceed to listen. You'll be glad you did.
