Top Ten Albums With Skulls On the Cover

Skulls are a known symbol in rock and metal, constantly finding their way into album covers. Here is a list of the best albums that wear the symbol of the skull. Skeletons do not count and the skull can belong to a human or an animal. Also, these albums are ranked by how good they sound, not how good the cover is.

The Top Ten

1 As the Palaces Burn - Lamb of God
2 South of Heaven - Slayer
3 Summer of Darkness - Demon Hunter
4 Far Beyond Driven - Pantera

The original album artwork wasn't actually a skull with a nail in the forehead. It was actually a nail up an ass. Fun fact. - IronSabbathPriest

I guess now I might have to do a top ten albums with asses on the cover. Also, that's cool! - AngryByrd

5 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold
6 Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good! - Megadeth

One of Megadeth's greatest. It's dark, speedy and heavy. With a great skull album cover. Everything you'd want in a thrash album! - IronSabbathPriest

In a list with megadeth, slayer, pantera and LOG, ax7 is at the top? - gemcloben

This is just based on skull covered albums. If I were to rank those bands best to worst I would say Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, Pantera, and Megadeth. Also, I disagree with popular opinions 90% of the time, so you shouldn't be shocked that I'm saying this. - AngryByrd

7 The Fury of Our Maker's Hand - Devildriver
8 Deftones - Deftones
9 Appetite for Destruction - Guns N' Roses
10 Black Metal - Venom

I thought this was Baphomet.

Not a skull.
