that looks like it was made with stock gimp filters
[QUOTE=Sanius;34535548]that looks like it was made with stock gimp filters[/QUOTE] It was actually made by Paul Normansell, he does a ton of art like that [url]http://www.paulnormansell.com/art/the-killers.aspx[/url]
looks pretty bad
There is an exact photoshop filter that does what he does with his art

[img]http://i.imgur.com/HchTh.jpg[/img] The album art doesn't really tell you anything and it doesn't fit atmospheric black metal at all. The album is really good though.

[img]http://www.vintagevinyljournals.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/bobdylan-selfportrait-cover.jpg[/img] I go back and forth with this, but settle that this album art is a terd. [editline]5th February 2012[/editline] [img]http://991.com/newGallery/Stevie-Wonder-Journey-Through-T-285463.jpg[/img] If Stevie could see, he'd slap whoever did this to one of his best, most creative albums. As you can see, the artwork is embossed so at least he could "feel" the art with his hands... but that's not really seeing what it actually is at all.

[img]http://static7.businessinsider.com/image/4eaff605eab8ea200a00001a/the-cover-for-drakes-new-album-take-care.jpg[/img] Self explanatory. Music isn't that great but really, who does this stuff? Also, it kinda looks like he's holding a chicken drumstick.
It's not that bad at all.

Their other albums always had very original and interesting cover artwork.
fuck no Red's album art is gorgeous and works with the album perfectly
I think that any album art profiling the band is poor. That's just my opinion but honestly. And especially in the case of deathcore covers where they're actually posing trying to look cool and shit.
