I wonder what kind drugs the band must of been on to think the album cover was good enough.
Someone got a Macintosh and said "right, right." too many times.
I like this one
I recognized the artist [by style], even before I read your post.
I'd like to know if they invented that mask [right foreground], or copied it; that looks enough like my own commercial work that I had to do a double take.
Spoiler: Honorable mention
Don't know why either. Even by 2003 standards of CG it looked terrible.
Also, only noticed now you already had that cover art in your original post.
They have some pretty cool album covers.
One of the worst:
The music is just as up to par as the album cover. Gothic King Cobra from YouTube's music, for any of you that are familiar.
What the fuck is that? That looks like a child who is currently learning how letters work, discovered MS Paint, and just put random images on a picture of a graveyard that they found on google images. They didn't even spell it correctly. Hells Advocate? Fuck this album cover. I'm thoroughly disgusted. I do not want to be familiar with it.
The music is even worse imho. Is it like a troll band?
It seems to me you're not very familiar with the underbelly of the so-called Depressive Suicidal Black Metal. That "genre" has the best worst covers in history.
I knew metal had a bunch of subgenres that eventually turns into a maze and you're wondering why you're on wikipedia trying to discern the difference at 3 AM and you have to work in 3 hours. But damn, never found myself in that part of the maze.
I usually just end up listening to whatever metal bands I like despite their genre. I know it can help you find similar things that you might like but I usually don't. I usually can find a band or two at least in every genre I enjoy and a few more I can tolerate and maybe grow a liking for. I don't think that genre would be one of them though.
DSBM is quite possibly the shittiest metal subgenre there is - which isn't to say there aren't good bands (usually one-man projects, actually) in it - but as a whole it is the most stupid and uninspired shit there is. Which isn't really surprising, given that most "artists" in it are teen suicidal edgelords in 25+-year-old bodies.
Incel Metal then?
I am very familiar with DSBM. This isn't DSBM though.
Black metal is my favorite type of music, Nocturnal Depression is like the only DSBM band I like though.
I don't think so. Only way to explain it is to watch his YouTube videos as well...
Dunno what this is, don't really care to listen to it. But the cover certainly reminds me of shit-tier DSBM.
As far as black metal goes, it used to be my favorite music genre too (or at least the most listened one) in late high school/early university days. Then I kinda grew out of it when I realized that approximately 96,3% black metal bands are pure, undiluted shit with no depth or musicianship behind it, and that in 9/10 cases going back to older 1st wave and Norwegian wave of black metal is more than enough. Bands which came later on rarely brought anything worthwhile to the table. Sure, 2nd wave was all about the regression and throwing away the idea of bringing innovation to metal and what not, which certainly made sense in the 90s, but copying the same notion almost three decades later is just stupid.
Luckily, there are a fuckton of great black metal bands nowadays (and they're usually hybrid stuff with death, doom and so on) so the genre is alive and well, but plenty of stuff out there is still pretty bad.
Always thought these two look beautiful (together):
Another iconic one:
Never really knew how to react to this last one. It fits the album, though, it's all kinds of weird:
Definitely. I guess I could of said first wave black metal, instead of just black metal. NWoBHM is right up there as well.
Celtic Frost, Motorhead, and Tank are my holy musical trinity.

I like some of Dynatron's album covers. Also one of the best modern synth-wave artist. I love listening to his music when reading a good Sci-Fi novel.
