2 Slayer - Christ Illusion

If the album cover scared the nation of India, the cover will definitely scare pop fans away. A mutilated Jesus Christ being stoned in a sea of beheaded heads and a destroyed city.

Try showing this to a priest and they'll beat you up and drag you to the church to exorcise you - SirSkeletorThe3rd

But now, iTunes, This site, and Google Play issue an alternative cover with a zombie hand and not Jesus Christ.

3 Cattle Decapitation - Humanure
4 Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar
5 Korn - Korn

Is that Slender Man? - Metalhead1997

6 Carcass - Reek of Putrefaction
7 Exhumed - Gore Metal Exhumed - Gore Metal Exhumed is an American death metal band from San Jose, California that is currently signed to Relapse Records.
8 Mayhem - Dawn of the Black Hearts

This album had an actual dead person on it. Ironically his name was Dead. He was the lead singer of the band. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

9 Cannibal Corpse - Tomb of the Mutilated

Eek. Don't show me this. - lovefrombadlands

10 Cannibal Corpse - The Wretched Spawn

The Contenders

11 Death - Spiritual Healing
12 Slayer - God Hates Us All

The original cover (the bloody, defaced Bible) would scare a LOT of people. A Bible desecrated with blood, pentagram nails, and the Slayer logo burned in. The back is reven more harrowing, with marks on specific Bible verses to look as if a psychopath or evil genius defaced the Bible. Too bad Slayer released a new, censored cover with four Latin crosses. The white cover is so underwhelming with the Latin Cross, Peterine Cross, and sideways crosses.

The one I see in the picture looks cool. - lovefrombadlands

13 Slayer - Reign In Blood
14 The Underground Resistance - Darkthrone

How is this cover shocking?

15 Slayer - South of Heaven
16 Slayer - Repentless

A better, more "sacreligious" cover than Christ Illusion.

17 Carnivorous Erection - Regurgitate

I honestly think this one is hilarious.

Ew...I hope what it looks like is happening isn't. - lovefrombadlands

18 Autopsy - Severed Survival
19 Flotsam and Jetsam - Once In a Deathtime
20 Pestilence - Consuming Impulse
