Top 10 Metal Album Cover Arts of 2015


The Top Ten

1 Eternal - Stratovarius

Covers by Stratovarius and Blind Guardian rarely disappoint. - Metal_Treasure

2 Condition Human - Queensryche

I was about to put it at #1 because a child on the cover always brings back memories from the childhood, its innocence, etc.
But I didn't put it at #1 because as of 2015 this idea was already overused in prog metal and prog rock (ex., many Dream Theater covers) and was like a cliché.
Nevertheless, it's a very good cover. - Metal_Treasure

3 Beyond the Red Mirror - Blind Guardian
4 I Worship Chaos - Children of Bodom

I am not crazy about that yellow color but I guess they made a cover in yellow because they had already made covers in green, blue, red, etc.
But I like their signature silhouette of death that is on all their albums. - Metal_Treasure

5 Repentless - Slayer
6 Underworld - Symphony X
7 Scar Sighted - Leviathan
8 What Should Not Be Unearthed - Nile

This cover tells me 'Solid. Heavy. Dark. Mysterious. Ancient. Inaccessible.'
Which describes perfectly the album's music (brutal technical death metal) and lyrics (Egyptian rituals). - Metal_Treasure

9 The Congregation - Leprous
10 Autumn Eternal - Panopticon

It's beautiful because nature always is but it's just a photo (the reason I can't put this cover higher) - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Meliora - Ghost
12 Sleep at the Edge of the Earth - Wilderun
13 The Book of Souls - Iron Maiden
