I remember seeing this album cover in a "awesome metal album cover" thread a long time ago. It was a greyscale picture of this ominous castle that looked like it was made of some kind of tree roots or tentacles. The front of the castle looking thing had a circular spiral of the roots near the top of it also. I remember the picture being "foggy" and the band name being illegible if that helps.

If anyone can help me find this album they win at life for the day thanks!

Circular spiral of roots on top? Check.
Foggy? Check.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

No those aren't it....

Det Som Engang Var has the exact atmosphere and feel of the cover art I am thinking of though. It's a pencil drawing I believe... damn I wish I could remember anything else about it

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

You mean looks MORE ridiculous......that muscle-bound warrior and his angry horse are the best thing about that artwork!

Doesn't really fit all the roots and shit like that, but maybe this?

Immortal and Emperor also have castles, but are completely legible.

This, however may be a contender:

This is now the Metal Albums with Castles on the Covers Thread.


In that case, I say In The Nightside Eclipse is the greatest.

On second thought, just forget what album you're looking for and listen to Shrinebuilder.

I am your saviour



Haven't listened to it, but it's Leviathan's "Verrater". I was obsessed with that brilliant artwork as well

EDIT: Actually, reading your description, this might not even be what you're looking for, but I still think it's awesome

My laptop doesn't have the keys to do those little accents

I think there's some ALT combination for them, I have no idea what kind though since I have a German keyboard.

No problem, it just so happened that it was saved in my pictures folder

I should probably take a listen to the actual album though, as I actually like black metal now
