2 Keeper of the Seven Keys (Part II) - Helloween
3 Sonic Firestorm - DragonForce
4 Keeper of the Seven Keys (Part 1) - Helloween
5 Memories of a Time to Come (Best Of) - Blind Guardian

This is the best Blind Guardian album cover and the most beautiful one on this list. You have to zoom it and see it's beauty. - Metal_Treasure

6 Legendary Tales - Rhapsody (Of Fire)
7 The Mystery of Time - Avantasia

It's beautiful and captures the album contents, shown in the album title. - Metal_Treasure

8 Ultra Beatdown - DragonForce

Looks like something out of Overwatch.

9 Live - Blind Guardian

"Live" is their second live album.

I love this cover - its medieval atmosphere is wonderful. A cool idea is the "Bard's Tavern", where the bards from Blind Guardian play live. You can even see one of the bards through the tavern window.
Blind Guardian really take you to another place in every sense. - Metal_Treasure

10 The Metal Opera Part II - Avantasia

My general impression - Blind Guardian and Avantasia offer the best album covers, and these bands are very consistent.

Even though Avantasia and Edguy is almost the same thing, Edguy album covers are not that good. - Metal_Treasure
