My favorite metal album of 2017.
This cover was created by Xenoyr (Xen) - vocalist (harsh vox) and lyricist who also creates artwork for other bands. - Metal_Treasure

13 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Great cover but I didn't put it very high because it was PARTLY created by Metallica (it wasn't painted by the band):
"The cover was designed by Metallica and Peter Mensch, and painted by Don Brautigam. It depicts a cemetery field of white crosses tethered to strings, manipulated by a pair of hands in a blood-red sky. "
