I don't like too much Black Metal and black & white covers, with rare exceptions, like the early Ulver

Deathday 666's album art should be here

Nice list, makes me wonder why there is no "best cover art" category in MS awards. I remember I've seen something like that while listing through past years, but from some year it suddenly ceased to exist.

Me neither, but I like blue and green or dreamy ones, though my absolute favorites are the early cheesy NWOBHM and similar covers, as well as those done by Travis Smith: http://www.seempieces.com/GalleryFrameset.html

I have arbitrarily decided (and humanity agreed) that mine are better. Include them now.

Oh no, wait.... Did I write At The Heart Of Winter? *facepalm*
Battles In The North has the best cover art of all time. It kicks the shit out of Picasso. I'd like to know how designed it so I can praise him all day long. Yeah, praise him.
