Really, I just like the pictures.
Some may just have been the artist getting a chance to indulge one of his kinks.
If you like the cover, remember to check out their music as well. There's a real mix of musical styles on display, so there should be something there that clicks.
ShadowIcon - Empire in Ruins (Slovenia 2011)
A concept album about the death of the Roman Republic it says HERE
I'm not sure whether this young lady represents Rome or is some sort of pissed off deity.
Either way, I'm in no hurry to ask why she's wearing a net curtain.
Honour to: Official ShadowIcon
Anna Fiori - Magna Mater (Mexico 2013)
Representing the end of another empire, maybe?
Or a goddess going bowling?
None of the other gods have the heart to tell her how terrible she is.
Honour to: Anna Fiori
Diary Of Destruction - Outside The Shade Ep (France 2010)
Ever noticed how many metal covers have nothing whatsoever to do with the title?
I couldn't find a song from this Ep so have one from the following album.
The first time I heard this band, I thought they had two vocalists - one male, one female.
How wrong was I?
Honour to: BLANK TV
If you want to quibble, the next one is Prog rather than Metal.
Herd of Instinct - Conjure (USA 2011)
So is waving scissors about when you can't see what you're doing.
I'll mention at this point that Guitarist/Bassist/other stuff-er Mark Cook plays the most astonishing guitar I've ever seen.
Has he got telescopic fingers or something?
Osukaru -Triumphant (Sweden 2013)
No wonder she's carefully poking about her.
In a minute she's going to grab the pigeon and confuse the hell out of both of them.
The band themselves are old-school AOR
One thing I always like is a band that continue a theme over successive album covers so:
Osukaru - Covered Up (Sweden 2013)
"Sod this representing the blindness of humanity malarkey. I'm fed up with walking into things"
Osukaru - Transition (Sweden 2014)

Impromtus Ad Mortem - Infortunio (Colombia 2007)
It's no surprise to find that they are on the melancholy side
Honour to: Carlos Bathory
That's all folks.
If you have anything you'd like to see next, drop me a comment and if it's out there, I'll find it..
