Top 10 Best Metal Album Covers to Shock Mainstream Pop Fans With

The Top Ten

Cannibal Corpse - Butchered at Birth

I hate the album cover myself but it has good songs like meat hook sodomy and vomit the soul heh if those retards read the titles theyll get creeped out and the funny thing is I'm a Christian who listen to cannibal corpse!

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.

Cattle Decapitation - Humanure
Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar
Korn - Korn

Is that Slender Man? - Metalhead1997

Carcass - Reek of Putrefaction
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

Exhumed - Gore Metal Exhumed is an American death metal band from San Jose, California that is currently signed to Relapse Records.

The Contenders

The one I see in the picture looks cool.

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.
