Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! (Or a happy Thursday, for those that don’t celebrate, I suppose?) Anyway, as we’ve noted in previous editions, it’s the end of November — and that means, it’s the last new Cursed Imagery post of the year! That’s right, from here on out, we’ll be focusing on recapping our Best (Worst?) Album Covers of 2019. But before we get that far, we’ve got a few final new entries to satiate your eye-holes. So, let’s jump in!
Teeth — The Curse of Entropy
I don’t dislike this cover so much as… I have no idea what it’s meant to be. Something from a Rick and Morty episode? The subject of a forthcoming Blood Incantation song? I’ve got no idea here.
Sentient Horror — Morbid Realms
So, this is a pretty dope cover on balance, but what even is the creature guarding these Morbid Realms? Let’s call him “Jeff.”
War-Head — Monuments of Fallacy
100000 Tonnen Kruppstahl — The Chair
This family, generally speaking, looks pretty morose. The kid in the middle, though, takes things to a different level. I’m pretty sure his name is Damien and he’s the son of the Antichrist or something like that. Dude’s glare just bores into your soul.
Öxxö Xööx — Ÿ
So, I kind of like this cover. But d’you know what I like more? The description of Öxxö Xööx on their Metal-Archives page. And I quote:
The lyrics are written partly in English and partly in a fictional language created by the band. Öxxö Xööx means 69 in this made-up language (“make love, not war”). “Öxxö xööx” is also “6 9” in binary code.
Sign me up. These guys sound like hilarious dorks and I am very here for it.
That’ll do it for this edition! Check back in December as we count down our favorite album art highlights (lowlights?) of the year!
