The best metal album covers of October 2019

Malicious artistry for your viewing pleasure.

Beautiful is when artists present new and unique takes on widely known works across history. Though Girardi's gruesome interpretation of the nativity scene may not be what you deem as beautiful, it turns the script upside down and presents a message through a new lens, fulfilling PROFANATICA's sadistic desires. Beautiful right? You also have Jordan Barlow, who visualized a spiritual war between Aleister Crowley and the demonic entity known as Choronzon on the cover of 1349's new opus The Infernal Pathway. These two works of art are but some of the many offerings that this tenth month brought to us all. Despite the many options, there are few that shine above the rest and we've highlighted those for your viewing (and listening) enjoyment.
