Metal Albums With the Weirdest / Creepiest Cover Art

We've all seen one, I'm almost sure of it. It could have been just weird, creepy looking, disgusting, etc.

The Top Ten

1 Humanure - Cattle Decapitation

When I first saw this I thought it was a rip off of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother.

The cover is just gross! Should be number 1 - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

3 Miss Machine - The Dillinger Escape Plan V 1 Comment
4 Satanica - Behemoth V 2 Comments
5 Tomb of the Mutilated - Cannibal Corpse

I thought I was gonna throw up after looking at that.

It's a female corpse nailed to a cross while a male corpse is eating her crotch.

Oh, for God's sake, I HATE THIS!

Great Cover, Great album - Seventies-Music-Fan

7 Worm Infested - Cannibal Corpse

I love Cannibal Corpse, but I do NOT love the front cover of this album!

Just... just.. Whyyy?...
Why would you make something like this?!

8 Korn - Korn

If you think the album cover is creepy then listen to the final track on the album, Daddy!

Hey, is that the slender man?

9 The Cleansing - Suicide Silence
10 Dawn of the Black Hearts - Mayhem

How is this not number 1?! It's the front cover of a dead guy for crying out loud! That to me is way more scarier than anything on this list!

If more people knew the story behind this then I guarantee it would be #1. That's a real photo of vocalist Dead after his suicide. You can thank Euronymous for the photo. - ViitalShadow

That's what happens if you worship satan you go crazy. and that's a real corose

The Contenders

11 The Diseased and the Poisoned - Carnifex
12 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath V 1 Comment
13 Locust Abortion Technician - Butthole Surfers

A bizarre title, a bizarre cover, therefore a bizarre album. - PositronWildhawk

This is half a metal album so that counts.

Most weirdest cover I mean what

The Butthole Surfers aren't Metal. They're more Experimental Rock.

14 Reign In Blood - Slayer

Controversial, weird and great - jack2244

15 Smells Like Children - Marilyn Manson

The cover is really supposed to look like an album that looks like it's made for children, but it's not.

Someone please get Dawn of the Black Hearts to number one.

How is this above that Mayhem cover with the dead body?

I've never listened to Marilyn Manson but I know some of his music videos are creepy and scary. - AlphaQ

16 Tormented - Staind
17 Reek of Putrefaction - Carcass
18 Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer
19 Gallery of Suicide - Cannibal Corpse
20 Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces - Seether

Seether counts because they're alternative metal.
