Top Ten Albums with Similar CoversIronSabbathPriest Format:
Album cover (band) and comparative album cover (band)
No, I'm not biased towards rock and metal. It's just when 90% of your collection is that it's inevitable. I'm happy for albums of other genres to be on here.
Bands can be added more than once.
The Top Ten
Yes, the alternative American cover to Iced Earth's self-titled album reminds of the Iron Maiden's cover (Iced Earth album has 2 more covers - European and Japanese cover, and a remastered cover). - Metal_Treasure
By this I mean the original artwork for Iced Earth album. The remastered edition cover doesn't look like Seventh Son and in my opinion looks cheesey. I much prefer the original blue cover. - IronSabbathPriest
So much so that I'm half convinced that the cover for the Astonishing is the rejected alternative artwork for Dystopia. - IronSabbathPriest
I also consider Colors to be the modern metal equivalent to Dark Side of the Moon. Every song flows into the next. Both brilliant albums. - IronSabbathPriest
Both show metal angels. - IronSabbathPriest
Yes, I noticed all these things, too. Also, both album cover arts are mostly grey. And both covers look post-apocalyptic. Iced Earth album came out 5 years before Megadeth but I don't think Megadeth ripped off Iced Earth's ideas. - Metal_Treasure
Not only do they have the same title, the covers both show futuristic technologies. - IronSabbathPriest
So I'm not the only one who realized
Both are in black and white. Mindcrime II could also be included I guess, but I tend to avoid talking about that album (only good song is The Chase, with Dio on guest vox) - IronSabbathPriest
Two fairly similar sunset covers. But the similarity ends there. One is an incredible diverse French progressive album, while the other is a trash heap trying to sell out. Guess which is which. - IronSabbathPriest
Both have people with gas masks on. - IronSabbathPriest
Both have snakes on the cover. But the resemblance ends there. Both great albums though. - IronSabbathPriest
At #10 and not higher because it's a deliberate parody. - IronSabbathPriest
Look at the girls
One looks like a distorted version of the other.
