What are the coolest black metal album covers? Picked up the Interequinox vinyl and it's gorgeous, looking to add some more to my collection.

Not a cover but the slip case to Greyhaze's Sarcofago's complilation is great.



It's done by this guy whose art is top-notch for this genre.

Don't buy albums based on their cover art. That said, aesthetics are important to BM.

There are a billion covers in the vein of Necrolord and romantic or medieval paintings, some of which are good (I really dig the ones Danny LaFever posted for example), but here are a couple that are a little different. I don't know if you can find all of them as vinyls.


Few do the "three dressed up dudes staring menacingly at the camera" right, but Cult of Fire does.


Would be "just" a classical cover if it was black and white, but the warm colors make this one stand out more.


This DSO cover reminds me of classical art but also clearly isn't. Captures a feeling of total despair really well somehow.


This Emperor is in the same common style that I mentioned above but it's just so drat simple and stylish. Marduk - gently caress me Jesus also goes here.


Another classic, Total Death. Lots of bands make music about space but most covers are either very cheesy (Midnight Odyssey), or they slap a monochrome Hubble telescope image on there and call it a day (Besvikelsens dystra monotoni), or they're just black, like space (Darkspace). This one captures the coldness and lifelessness of space, while still being interesting to look at.

Sammy Davis Jr. Jr. is also in repose.

David Herrerias' art for Nightbringer and the related project Akhyls is great.

Nightbringer - Ego Dominus Tuus


Nightbringer - Terra Damnata


Akhyls - The Dreaming I


Some others I like for some reason or another.

Urzeit - Anmoksha


Anicon - Exegeses


Yellow Eyes - Sick With Bloom

Denis Forkas Kostromitin has done some nice stuff as well, often in the same vein of style as David Herrerias.

Kristian Whlin/Necrolord was responsible for a lot of early album covers. There's a number of artists who repeatedly show up, this can be good and kinda bad.

Kostromitin's stuff is neat. It isn't black metal but I'm fond of the cover art he did for Horseback.

I dunno, this is pretty high on my list of "Best" BM album covers.



It's never not hilarious. The alternative covers are way less hilarious than this one.

I decided to listen to this because I found the album art very unsettling. The music is rather intense as well. Cool find!

This is probably familiar to a lot of you already, but I stumbled across it last night and liked it a lot and wanted to share with those that haven't heard it.

Sigh in general has a lot of interesting coverwork. In Somniphobia is the one that you're mentioning.

I was just listening to the normie radio for normies and they had a concert recommendation, which was for Zeal and Ardor. It included the words "black metal". I feel like I'm 14 again and someone was wrong on the internet, and probably also how I'll feel when that stupid Lords of Chaos movie comes out.

What part of "If you are a false don't entry" is so hard to understand :corsair:

Also RYM and Wikipedia include black metal in their genre descriptors. Metal-Archives doesn't even include him, but M-A is gonna M-A
