Top Ten Classic Rock Album Covers that Would Be Great Metal Album Covers
The Top Ten
Yes, looks like a Judas Priest album cover - Metal_Treasure
Yup I agree even it sequels Bat Out of Hell II and III look like Metal album covers - christangrant
What's more metal than a scary creature riding out of hell with its monster headed motorcycle while a bat statue burning in the background and all of this under blood red skies above a cemetary? I guess nothing.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Traditional Heavy Metal
Very good guesses, somekindofaguy. Creative list - Metal_Treasure
The title is pretty self-explanatory.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Progressive/Power Metal
Absolutely. One of the best power metal album covers ever? Maybe. Nothing needs to be changed for a power metal album. - Metal_Treasure
Looks just like a power metal album cover - christangrant
Album cover is so metal and I agree it would be best for thrash metal (ex., Metallica's Seek & Destroy as a single with this cover) - Metal_Treasure
Many people think It's a NWOBHM album, but It's not. It's a hard rock album at the best. Though the songs aren't that heavy. Nevermind, It's not about the genre, it's about the album cover, which is quite good for metal.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Thrash Metal
This image has always reminded me of a big penis, LOL (I know what's on the cover but...) - Metal_Treasure
Yes, almost the entire album is load of rip-off songs, but we can't deny the album cover is iconic, and could be metal related.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Black Metal
Yes. The only thing that doesn't fit is that it's too colorful. But if you make it in Black & White, it would work better for black metal - Metal_Treasure
Though Kiss is a Glamish Hard Rock Band, Their Looking is Pretty Much Black Metal Before Black Metal.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Black/Traditional Heavy Metal
Great cover by a flawless band...
A schizoid man in the cover.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Thrash/Death Metal
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Thrash/Traditional Heavy Metal
I would say Progressive metal and you don't have to change anything in this cover (no surprise, the band are progressive rock).
Voivod covers look similar (Nothingface, Dimension Hatröss, The Outer Limits) - Metal_Treasure
Could be progressive metal as well - Metal_Treasure
I don't need to explain this one.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: Speed/Thrash Metal
Yes, some Laaz Rockit and Yngwie covers look similar to this. Only Ted Nugent's white pants and some other small details don't fit. - Metal_Treasure
The artists shoots with a guitar shaped gun on the cover. So metal.
Most ideal metal subgenre for this album cover: I think It can be any, but that machine gun guitar reminds me of Speed Metal Songs Mostly.
