Mornin’, all. Another Friday, another edition of Cursed Imagery to fill your eye holes. We’ve got some good ‘uns, some not-quite-so-good ‘uns and everything in between. And it’s also pay day for me, so chances are I’ll be buying some music not featured on this list! But, that’s beside the point. Let’s jump into the point now. Here are this week’s album art highlights!

CURSED IMAGERY: The Week in Album Art (October 4, 2019)

Quick one this week, for two reasons. First, it is literally 6:00 AM as I write this, and I’m doing so after an overnighter at work. Second, most of the new stuff albums dropping this week have, at the very least, unmemorable album covers. NOT THE CASE with the four we present to you here. One good, three…less good. So, let’s jump in!

CURSED IMAGERY: The Week in Album Art (September 27, 2019)

Maaaan, it’s a busy week for new metal. This is the first time since I started doing this column that the number of releases dropping on Friday — not “over the weekend” or “early next week”; today — spanned more than a full page on Metal-Archives’ Upcoming Releases list. And as you might expect from the sheer volume of stuff dropping… yes, there were definitely some gems on the album artwork front. I’ve whittled the list down to six highlights in particular, so let’s jump into that now!

It’s about 8 hours before this post is supposed to publish, and I’m only just now getting started. I’m also one day removed from a five-shift-in-six-days hell stretch at work, each night of which felt like a full moon was having a little full moon baby in front of our eyes. What’s all this mean?

Well, for starters, I’m juuuust about out of fucks to give about post introduction content. Secondly, you’ll only be getting quips about five albums this week. Though, that’s not entirely down to work fatigue. There were a buttload of albums coming out this week, but oddly, not that many ridiculous covers. So, let’s take what’s been given to us and roll with it!

CURSED IMAGERY: The Week in Album Art (September 13, 2019)

Fellow album art indulgers, I write this post to you from computer purgatory. I’ve just returned from taking my laptop in for a battery replacement, which apparently requires it be shipped off to a different service facility from which it may or may not actually return. In the absence of my trusty Dell machine, I’m on my new Mac Mini, which I’m still handling with safety gloves until a couple of different external hard drives arrive and I can partition off various files and apps among them. Apparently, you turn 30 and suddenly start giving a damn about not choking your gadgets to death before their time. Who knew?

Anyway, that’s my situation right now. What’s all this have to do with album art? Exactly nothing. (I told you I’m in a bad way with regard to these intro blurbs!) But, the album art part’s coming up now. So, jump in!
