So I have recently created a black metal project and have started thinking of ideas for an album cover, it will be for an ep and a lot of it is already written. Tell me what you guys think, if I should make any changes or anything, I only have one actual idea now and I like it but I don't like it ( if that makes any sense ).

I was going to say it looks really cliche and cheesy, but then I read that you said it was for a black metal project.
Yep, looks like black metal.

This is awful. FIrst of all, not enough black. Next, I can read the text. Throw it away and start again

TS, if you and your bandmates fancy yourselves as decent, honest people, your album cover should be a disclaimer saying not to listen to the garbage that lies within.

It looks right, just a bit generic. I mean, yeah, it looks right and all or whatever, but you could be way more creative about it brah. But yeah, it looks like your average run of the mill black metal album cover. You can do better though, can't you? You're better than that. I believe in you.


Now get the **** off the internet and design a siqq as faq album cover.


You can do it.

yeah, its horrible.

1: it follows every single cliché of the genre you're part of
2: its ugly while doing it
3: its uncreative


Make an album cover personal. **** what the expectations say. This album cover is sterile and boring and says nothing about the music that thousands of album covers haven't already for that kind of genre.

I'll add/come with more specific remarks.

remove all the text. The picture as it is is nice. the font is ****ing horrible.

remove it. don't even include any band/album-name font.

the picture on its own might work for an album cover.

the font and the fact that the text is just photoshopped/placed in there ruins the entire idea of it.

the font/text screams "hi i am a 12 year old MALE and I listen to slipknot and considered myself rather hardcore and deep"

don't you have any ****ing aesthetic sides of yourself at all? a ******ed rock short one chromosone would see that the font is terrible.
Who even places such god-awful text on an album cover?

god ****ing damnit.

Scrap that cover, find a girl with a nice rack, take a photo of said rack, and use that as the cover instead.

How lovely, finally someone showing reverence to trve metal. I suggest you put your band logo on it too with an obligatory pentagram and St. Peter's cross. What you do is find black construction paper and jizz on it. See Darkthrone for an example.

I didn't know who Beady Eye was until now. But the chick's lying down and all you get is side boob. I was suggesting more of taking a photo of her breasts without any cover-up. JUST her breasts.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm trying some other ideas today, I only have one right now though.


Tell me what you guys think. Better? Worse? Anything I should change?

I can't tell what the band's name is but the rest of it is a lot better. Kinda reminds me of Blackwater Park in a good way.

Better but the font is crap and the placing of it is horrendous.

The picture is loads better. As said before though, just get rid of the text and it will be better. Album covers don't have to have text on them, and a lot of my favourite groups' covers don't have text at all.

Really stupid and cliche. Also using a font for your band name is stupid. And also you can't use the image because I'm guessing it doesn't belong to you.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
