It’s the end of the year and everyone knows what that shit means. I’ve been refusing to even think about polluting the internet with another sort of list or anything regarding the albums I’ve enjoyed for the past year, until recently. I stumbled upon this site, which is really awesome — it’s ten artists re-imagining the album art for their favorite releases from 2015. I got real stoked on it but was let down by the absolute void of any metal albums.
So! I stole the idea and applied it to nine releases from this year that I found particularly delightful. I tried to keep some of the original aesthetic intact while pushing the art further and infusing some of my own linear, minimal style. Here they are, in no particular order at all [and click the album titles to see the originals].
