Speaking of which, here's the cover of their new album just released today. You need to take a real close look to see why I have posted it here, too.

<h2 class="col four"><a href="feature">The Onion</a> </h2> <div class="col two"> <h1>Inventory: 13 Seriously Scary Album Covers</h1> </div> <div class="col two article_text"> By <b><a href="author/nmurray">Noel Murray</a>, <a href="author/trobinson">Tasha Robinson</a>, <a href="author/kryan">Kyle Ryan</a></b><br/> <b>October 20th, 2006</b><br/> <p><b>1. Cannibal Corpse, <i>Eaten Back To Life</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="CannibalCorpseEaten" title="CannibalCorpseEaten" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>With a name like Cannibal Corpse and songs titled "Edible Autopsy," "Scattered Remains, Splattered Brains," and "A Skull Full Of Maggots" (among others), you'd better <i>bring it </i>on the album cover. On its 1990 debut, Cannibal Corpse does just that, establishing a precedent for its later albums with ultra-violent, gory imagery. The entrails draped over the headstone cross in the background is a particularly nice touch.</p> <p><b>2. Mortad Hell</b><b>, <i>There's A Satanic Butcher In Everyone Of Us</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="MortadHellSatanicButcher" title="MortadHellSatanicButcher" class="fr col" width="174" height="159" /> <p>Mortad Hell has a serious case of Bad Metal Font Problem, where it's almost impossible to discern the band's actual name from its album cover, no matter how much you squint. But the cover image of the bloody monster with the hacksaw, the hideously distorted face, and the hacked-up victim really says everything that need be said about the group. Let's just hope the album's title is inaccurate.<i></i></p> <p><b>3. Sonic Youth, <i>Bad Moon Rising</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="SonicYouthBadMoon" title="SonicYouthBadMoon" class="fr col" width="172" height="174" /> <p>Forget about the eerie scarecrow silhouette and extra-flamey jack o'lantern head; what's really scary here is the urban landscape in the background. When people start setting pumpkins on fire in the city, some bad shit is bound to go down. In fact, to judge from the thin plume of smoke rising from one of the buildings in the background, some fairly subtle bad shit is probably already starting to go down.</p> <p><b>4. Deicide, <i>The Stench Of Redemption</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="DeicideStench" title="DeicideStench" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>Deicide frontman Glen Benton—he with the inverted cross branded into his forehead—has spent 20 years making damn sure everyone knows he's a Satanist. Although his song titles read like a 14-year-old boy desperately trying to shock his parents—"Death To Jesus," "Homage For Satan," etc.—the cover's evil-looking, vomiting Jesus reaching from inside an inverted cross (with skulls, natch) conveys the album's malevolent spirit well.</p> <p><b>5. Iron Maiden, <i>Killers</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="IronMaidenKillers" title="IronMaidenKillers" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>Iron Maiden mascot Eddie The Head has appeared on virtually everything Iron Maiden-related since the band's 1980 debut, but he never looked more sinister than on 1981's <i>Killers</i>. His face is the stuff of nightmares: the decomposing skin, the menacing grin, the soulless eyes, the, um, perfect teeth. (Even zombies should brush and floss!) As a recent victim clutches his surprisingly clean shirt, Eddie wields a bloody ax in one hand with his other arm outstretched. You're next.</p> <p><b>6. Klaus Nomi, <i>Klaus Nomi</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="Klaus Nomi" title="Klaus Nomi" class="fr col" width="174" height="173" /> <p>Before AIDS took his life in 1983, Klaus Nomi made his career creating a bizarre mixture of disco, electronica, and opera. He was known for his highly stylized and theatrical live performances, which helps explain this spooky cover. He looks like a combination of Woody Allen's <i>Sleeper </i>robot and Michael Keaton at the end of <i>Beetlejuice</i>. So, you know, creepy.</p> <p><b>7. Black Flag, <i>Family Man</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="BlackFlagFamilyMan" title="BlackFlagFamilyMan" class="fr col" width="174" height="173" /> <p>Drawn by the inimitable Raymond Pettibon, this creepy domestic murder scene is made all the more disturbing by three elements: the teddy bear, the still-living little girl, and the tiny, barely visible date, which should be instantly recognizable as the day after John F. Kennedy was assassinated. To some cultural critics, that was the day the '50s <i>really</i> ended, and the U.S. started to go crazy.</p> <p><b>8. Aphex Twin, <i>Come To Daddy</i> EP</b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="AphexTwinComeToDaddy" title="AphexTwinComeToDaddy" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>It isn't so much the army of man-faced children that makes this cover so unsettling, it's the fact that they all have the face of Aphex Twin mastermind Richard D. James. Just what we need: a whole generation of scruffy tech-heads with warped senses of humor. (Note: Almost as icky is the cover for Aphex Twin's <i>Windowlicker</i> EP, which pops James' head on a buxom swimsuit model. Although at least the kids from <i>Come To Daddy</i> now have a mommy to take care of them.)</p> <p><b>9. The Beatles, <i>Yesterday And Today</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="Beatles Butcher" title="Beatles Butcher" class="fr col" width="174" height="173" /> <p>The original art for The Beatles' 1966 release <i>Yesterday And Today</i> sparked such a negative reaction that the first American pressing was quickly recalled and replaced with something much blander, making the "Butcher cover" a major collectors' item for those who like their British Invasion idols covered in doll parts and raw meat. It's still pretty creepy today: Photos of John Lennon naked in bed with Yoko Ono was no big deal, but a beaming Paul McCartney with a severed, bloody doll head propped up in his lap? Eerie.</p> <p><b>10. Torture Killer, <i>For Maggots To Devour</i></b><b></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="TortureKillerForMaggots" title="TortureKillerForMaggots" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>With a name like "Torture Killer" and a vocalist originally from Cannibal Corpse, this grotesque album cover should come as no surprise. Neither should the gory song titles, though it's a little odd that "Fuck Them When They Bleed" should come back to back with "No Time To Bleed." The Finnish band's 2006 album <i>Swarm! </i>features more artistically accomplished spooky art of a rotting corpse serving as an insect hive, but this image from its debut album is significantly more unsettling.</p> <p><b>11. Black Sabbath, <i>Born Again </i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="BlackSabbathBornAgain" title="BlackSabbathBornAgain" class="fr col" width="174" height="171" /> <p>As scary movies from <i>The Exorcist</i> to <i>Pet Sematary</i> to, well, every other J-horror movie ever made might tell you, nothing is creepier than the juxtaposition of innocence and evil embodied in a distorted, demonic child. But wait… what about a distorted, demonic <i>infant</i>? That sure ups the ante, right? Seriously, there's something very unnerving about Black Sabbath's demon-baby cover, though at least this demon baby isn't chewing on a naked corpse in a pool of blood. Yet.</p> <p><b>12. Brutal Truth, <i>Sounds Of The Animal Kingdom</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="BrutalTruthAnimalKingdom" title="BrutalTruthAnimalKingdom" class="fr col" width="172" height="174" /> <p>Album art doesn't need blood, guts, or demon babies to be deeply creepy: This Brutal Truth cover gets more unpleasant with every viewing. Ape turning into man? Man turning into ape? Does it really matter, when either way, that distorted, outsized, fangy mouth looks ready and eager to rip someone's face off?</p> <p><b>13. Barbra Streisand, <i>Superman</i></b></p> <img src="http://www.avclub.co....thumbnail.jpg" alt="BarbraStreisandSuperwoman" title="BarbraStreisandSuperwoman" class="fr col" width="174" height="174" /> <p>She's dressed up for Halloween and she's spooky as hell. Which is most discomfiting: The big '70s hair? The come-hither smirk? The "I'm not wearing panties" teasing posture? The flat, shadowless image that makes it look like her body was painted onto the album cover around a photo of her head? You be the judge. Just don't stare at it too long: It may burn your eyes.</p> </div>

don't rememebr the band name or the name of the album, but it was some hardcore metal from norway or something. the legend behind the cover was that it was a guitar player or maybe singer who shot himself. and his bandmate took a picture of it and made a stew out of his brains. or was that some bullshit? i remember the cover being disguisting though.

Mayhem

Drummer Hellhammer, who at one time worked in a mental hospital, is the only remaining member of the band's prime-period lineup. Lead vocalist Dead committed suicide in 1991 (two years after joining the band) by shooting himself in the head; Hellhammer made a necklace using some of his skull fragments, and Euronymous reportedly cooked and ate pieces of Dead's brain. Euronymous, in turn, was stabbed to death while in his underwear on August 10, 1993, by the band's bass player, Count Grishnackh (born Christian Vikernes). Grishnackh's alleged motive was jealousy over the fact that Euronymous had a more evil reputation; he inflicted 23 separate wounds, it was also rumored, so as to outdo rival band Emperor's drummer, Faust, who was convicted in the stabbing death of a homosexual acquaintance. When police arrested Grishnackh, they found over 150 kg of stolen dynamite in his house, complete with a plan to blow up a large church on a religious holiday.

Not at all creepy unless you apply the mythological "Paul is dead" theory to this cover. ;)

Posted Image
To wit:
1. Lennon is The Priest, dressed in white.
2. Ringo is the The Mourner, dressed in black.
3. Paul is dead, he has no shoes on. (plus, he's smoking...not good for anyone's health...)
4. George is the Gravedigger, dressed in dirty denim .
5. The license plate on the VW on the left is "28IF", signifying that Paul would have been "28 if" he had not crashed the car (as noted in "A Day In the Life" and "Don't Pass Me By")
6. Is that a hearse on the other side of the street?

I always get Mayhem and Emperor mixed up. Their rap sheet is nothing to sneeze at either, though:

New bassist Tchort signed on for Emperor's full-length debut, In the Nightside Eclipse, which earned critical praise and an international cult following upon its release in 1994. However, around the same time, Samoth was convicted of arson after burning down a historical wooden church; Tchort was sentenced for burglary, knife assault, and desecration; and Faust was locked up for arson, burglary, and murder, stabbing a homosexual acquaintance 14 times outside the Olympic Park in Lillehammer after the man made a pass at him.

It's refreshing to read about musicians who aren't just in it for the money and the fame. These guys truly live their art.
