CURSED IMAGERY: The Month in Album Art (May 2021)

cursed imagery

Another month down, another mess of ridiculous new album titles to cover in Cursed Imagery. May was interesting in that there were a number of different reasons for inclusion in this months column. We’ve got some of your standard “just bad” album covers, but then we’ve also got some that I decided to throw in because I liked the band name. Or because I liked the album name. Hell, there’s even a bonafide good album cover in here — albeit one that merited a bit of fun-poking via a highly appropriate Parks and Rec gif.

CANTO: Obsidious, Yautja, Inhuman Condition, and More

It appears I will be making my return to California this year. Twice.

  • Entheos has signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records, which is awesome for them. It doesn’t look like we’re getting the debut release through that label until sometime next year, but for now check out this new teaser video.
  • In advance of the release of The Lurch this coming Friday, Yautja shared a new video for “The Weight”. Give it a watch at this location, and be sure to scoop up their new album at the end of the week, which is out through Relapse Records.
  • Inhuman Condition dropped a new (age-restricted) video for “Killing Pace”, which I suggest you take a few minutes to watch here. In case you weren’t aware (side note: I wasn’t) Rat°God is out on June 4th through Listenable Insanity Records.
  • Obsidious have signed on with Season of Mist, one of my personal favorite labels, with ambitions of releasing their debut with them sometime early next year. Better yet, however, they also released a new track titled “Iconic”, which you can check out directly below.
