album artwork

So i have a band that isn't anything serious yet. We don't play gigs yet but we make tons of original heavy metal/ thrash metal songs. To try and get some of our material out there, I was thinking of handing out Cd's. What do you guys think of the album artwork?

I'd consider tweaking the band name font slightly - I thought it said "Certum" before I saw your username was "Cerium".

Other than that. it's sweet - captures that 80's thrash feel pretty well

Here is a link to the other one, with 'Cerium' written slightly better.

This person hit the nail on the head.
I can see it on the shelf in the record shop beside Anthrax.
Sometimes I miss the 80's.

The text is pretty difficult to read. Otherwise, really cool.

I agree the text is a bit hard to read. The one you linked to your fb looks better. The actual art is pretty cool.

The text is illegible and the image looks like it was pulled off the very last page of Google images.

Are you in a shitty prog metal band (rusted a trick question, there are no good prog metal bands)? Because that's what your album cover suggests.

God, I kinda miss when the pit was brutal as hell sometimes.

Thanks, and no. That guy was right it is straight from Google, but it will work for just passing out Cd's with a few songs on them, not for a full fledged album cover though. I figured that would be obvious. But the Band Names' font is all me.

The artwork is pretty sweet. You should upload some material!

Also as for the font being hard to read, this is a common problem with metal bands. Often there are so many jagged edges it's hard to tell if there even are words.

Why am I the only person who thinks it sucks?

Like, it looks like it came straight out of 1983.

Looks like somebody without an artistic bone in their body made a font in MS paint and then pasted it over some shitty google images result.
