Metal Albums With the Weirdest / Creepiest Cover Art

We've all seen one, I'm almost sure of it. It could have been just weird, creepy looking, disgusting, etc.

The Top TenXW

1Humanure - Cattle Decapitation

When I first saw this I thought it was a rip off of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother.

The cover is just gross! Should be number 1 - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

5Tomb of the Mutilated - Cannibal Corpse

I thought I was gonna throw up after looking at that.

It's a female corpse nailed to a cross while a male corpse is eating her crotch.

This album cover is so disgusting!

Oh, for God's sake, I HATE THIS!

10The Diseased and the Poisoned - Carnifex

The Contenders

11Dawn of the Black Hearts - Mayhem

How is this not number 1?! It's the front cover of a dead guy for crying out loud! That to me is way more scarier than anything on this list!

If more people knew the story behind this then I guarantee it would be #1. That's a real photo of vocalist Dead after his suicide. You can thank Euronymous for the photo. - ViitalShadow

That's what happens if you worship satan you go crazy. and that's a real corose

12Black Sabbath - Black SabbathV1 Comment
13Locust Abortion Technician - Butthole Surfers

A bizarre title, a bizarre cover, therefore a bizarre album. - PositronWildhawk

This is half a metal album so that counts.

Most weirdest cover I mean what

The Butthole Surfers aren't Metal. They're more Experimental Rock.

14Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson

The cover is really supposed to look like an album that looks like it's made for children, but it's not.

Someone please get Dawn of the Black Hearts to number one.

How is this above that Mayhem cover with the dead body?

I saw this before.

15Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces - Seether

Seether counts because they're alternative metal.

16Kill - Cannibal Corpse

The words on the cover are pretty scary. The way they're all bloody and battered gives this album an uneasy felling.

Finally! A not creepy Cannibal Corpse album cover! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

What got this album of scary?
Is the only cannibal corpse's album with a bad album cover

17Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

Seriously? This is on here just because they smoke? Because smoking's a sin I guess.

You can do better than that! Sure smoking's bad but watching someone smoke does NOT look scary.
