Welcome back to Cursed Imagery! If you missed our debut post last week, this series focuses on poking fun at metal album artwork on a maybe-weekly, long-term-more-likely-monthly basis. If you missed our post last week, you also missed me crying “plagiarism!” over the artwork for a particular single, without realizing that said single was a cover from the artist I’d thought had been plagiarized. Good ol’ me — eh, guys?
Welp, onward and upward — and hopefully minus the need for any mea culpas this time! Our highlights from today’s crop of new releases are after the jump!
Welcome to Cursed Imagery, a new series here at Nine Circles dedicated to highlighting terrific new metal album artwork. Or, probably more commonly, less than terrific new metal album artwork. (Let’s face it: not everyone can be Dan Seagrave, folks.) As metal fans, we’re well aware that there’s no shortage of fodder on this front, and it’s high time we honed back in on — and had a bit of a chuckle at — the visual side of the terror we put in our ears each week. (Or each month. Probably month, given my track record for actually writing on this site anymore. We’ll see.)
Anyway! This week’s selections are after the jump. Read on and take a look!
