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.

    How could you forget this classic album cover.




    R.I.P - Ronnie James Dio


    It's just a matter of time, no matter how he tries. He hears "Plata O Plomo Gringo?" The last words before he dies.

    I don't have a picture to post, but remember Queen's "News of the World"? That used to scare the beejeezus out of me!!

    I recall Motley Crue's "Shoot at the Devil" album art being very scary at time of its release.

    I live next door to Our Lady Peace's practice space. When they're not on tour I see them come and go on a daily basis. I once saw Chris Cornell standing out front talking to Raine and his wife, Chantal Kreviazuk.

    They toured here this past summer and played a show at Echo Beach (a couple of blocks from where I live). I'm really only aware of them touring when their bus is parked out front of my building. Otherwise I don't really pay too much attention. Not really my thing. They seem like nice guys though.

    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"
