The Best Heavy Metal Cover Art From 2015

Inspired by Oscuro's “...And Justice For Art” series, I decided to take a look back at some of the metal cover art from 2015 that has stuck with me into the new year.

With hundreds (thousands?) of metal releases every year, there's a ton of artwork that gets splashed across my screen on any given day. While some of it is godawful, for the most part heavy metal gets album artwork right and really creates moods and tones you don't get with the cover designs of other genres.

From Vincent Locke's infamous Cannibal Corpse watercolors to the many, many different cover pieces by Travis Smith, there's some truly iconic artwork in metal and a ton of ground covered in terms of styles and themes.

This past year we got some really great cover art in just about every sub-genre. Unfortunately sometimes killer album art does not mean there will be equally killer music inside, though. The one imbalance that stands out most for me this year was the Marco Hassman cover for Contrarian's “Polemic.”

That cover is jaw-dropping, but it's also intensely interesting in the details. I mean, that's a giant space marlin, and it's apparently engaged in battle with regular old non-organic, metal ships. Everything about that makes me want to hear the album in question. Unfortunately the music didn't grab me (the vocals in particular killed my enjoyment, and the instrumentation was pretty standard tech death), but the artwork unquestionably did its job here.

70,000 Tons Of Metal, Day Two: "The Marathon Day"

I woke around 7am – excited for what was not only the first full day of the cruise…but what I hoped would be the most concerts I’ve ever attended in any single day of my life. It was all mapped out…but the question is – would the pool deck be ready?

I headed up to Deck 12 to assess the situation…and once I made it to the yellow police tape, I realized – here we go again. In 2015, the high winds at sea forced the crew to abandon building the pool deck stage (the largest at sea) until the morning. It took them until 6pm to get it ready for Soulfly’s set, forcing all other shows to be reworked indoors. This year, the plan going in seemed to be to rework the shows where available – likely at the end of the evening within the venues inside. I recalled my joke to Siegfried Sammer of Visions of Atlantis – “I’ll see you at 10am…IF – and that’s a big IF…the pool deck is ready.” Well, it appears the jinx was on because Visions of Atlantis would be bumped to Saturday. The guard told me that 11:30am was the target time for completion, which is still way better than 2015. More...

Metal Bands Express Support For Paris

Since the ISIS-led terrorist attacks in Paris that have left at least 129 dead, bands from across the globe have come come online to express their support for the people of France.

It's no surprise that many metal band actually played the same venue (the Bataclan) that was assaulted Friday night in the attack at the Eagles Of Death Metal show. Below are several longer messages left by metal and hardcore bands about the situation.

For those with strong stomachs, footage has also come online shot just outside the venue during the attack as show-goers fled from the terrorist gunmen.

Xandria: "Hand in hand for love, not hate. Today we wanted to share news and updates about our music with you - but like you all we too are left speechless. When a scene of terror hits you so close to home you truly feel how fragile the world is and how scarce mankind being united has become. As touring musicians, we had been playing yesterday's scene of terror, 'Le Bataclan' in Paris, multiple times ourselves. Today it's hard to imagine that a place where we found happiness in numerous occasions, within minutes became a house of horror. Violence and war are never an answer! " More...

With that in mind we joined forces with Napalm again, because they BELIEVE us, because they let us go and dare with our music and because they hold truth to their word. We might not have signed in blood but our starts aligned and it's with pleasure and hope in a great future that we say these news to all our fans. The future might be dark but without true people like the ones working for Napalm, there would be no tomorrow."

Napalm Records VP Thomas Case added: "We are proud that one of the most exciting and innovative Metal bands of today have prolongued the cooperation with Napalm Records. The path we have started together with the band two albums ago will continue and we will spare no efforts to grow the Portoguese wolves in the future!" More...
