I'm not feeling it.

"Worlds Torn Asunder" by Warbringer and "Forever Abomination" by Skeletonwitch are two other 2011 metal albums that have awesome cover art.

Not that I care but they only plaster the damn thing everywhere, but no mention of Balls Out by Steel Panther?

I hate it when articles want you to look at a picture, then shrink it so much (with no option of expanding) that you can't even see half the shiat on it.

/Like the "Autopsy" one

Wayne Static's solo album is pretty good if you are a fan of Static-X. Not Wisconsin Death Trip good, but still alright.

I was laughing when I saw the "best" ones, because I thought the author was being sarcastic.

Those all look the same to me (read: retarded).

They should look up the term 'trying too hard'.


Why do metal people take that shiat SO SRSLY?

Also, I can't tell from the TINY FARKING PICTURE, but he's clearly in scrubs in a morgue, not a kimono. Come on.

Wait, Limp Bizkit put out an album this year? News to me.

I kinda like the best of they included though I'd add

1.bp.blogspot.com
Blut aus Nord: 777: The Desanctification

4.bp.blogspot.com
Farsot - Insects

2.bp.blogspot.com
Yob - Atma

Not sure if there's a correlation but those albums also are high on my list of the best metal albums of the year overall (also they manage to avoid the stereotypical "none more black" metal aesthetic

Seems like mostly Death Metal on their 'best' list.. certainly not something I go for.

The following is more my style.. granted, it's not from this year..

In the Takasago Army cover the person/knife actually make the character 人 which if intentional was clever.
 
2011-12-22 01:23:28 PM
Actually, this one's probably my favorite album cover I own that came out this year.

Checked to see if the derpy Mastodon cover made the grade, left enormously smug 'n satisfied.

I'm having a tough time with a list that actually considers Limp Triscuit to be a metal band.

Nothing particularly wrong with the Lulu cover either, there's far worse out there in terms of being cliche at this point.

Good call. I forgot that came out in January since I imported it in 2010.

Somewhere in Time is still one of my favorite covers. Used to have a poster of it. I don't even like Iron Maiden.

Oh and Black Dahlia Murders new album is bomb.

Even though it came out last year, Lawless Darkness is still one of my favorite albums of 2011. This is the flyer for the release.

THIS - not only is it a terrific record, but the cover art is insane.

I do still prefer Twilight Of The Thunder God though...

I love Insomnium (still a sucker for all that melodic death metal stuff) and I loved "Across The Dark" but I didn't care for what I heard from their new one.

So, where's the list of the best? Those were all shiat.

New Meshuggah I believe I heard March.
Crusher Destroyer was the first thing I ever heard from Mastodon and met Brann at a bar in Chicago, pretty much back to back years ago. I hear what they're doing now and I don't "get" it. Not to take away anything from them as musicians, just not my thing.

Yeah "One" isn't bad, but the album as a whole isn't doing it for me either. "Above" is my favorite, and amazing cover art on that one as well.

I like Mastodon, but they are kinda overrated. For the last few years pretty much every metal magazine and blog have been heaping huge amounts of praise on them, acting like they are the best metal band on the planet and stuff like that. It gets old.

Mastodon is a good band, but there are a lot of metal bands I enjoy more.

I concur. They peaked with Leviathan.

I normally think metal in general tries too hard, but shiat like this is just cool no matter who you are. And to think it all started with the Immigrant Song...
