Paired with some of this year's strongest records.
From gouache paintings to the use of actual blood, this month's selected album covers provide a diversity of artistic techniques to best illustrate the eclectic themes present throughout these bodies of work. Gems like I'm Losing Myself, Secular Flesh, and Portent would not be approached as great as they did had it not been for the creativity on display for the viewer's first opportunity of engagement. Let's take a moment to appreciate the heart put into each and every one of the artistic endeavors below as they serve to complement and complete the greatness of metal.
