So, I searched and did not find any inspirational 'metal' picture threads and I believe this would be an appropriate thread for it.

I really love the imagery of metal, so I guess i'll start with one of my favorites.

Dude! Thats from Zdzislaw Beksinski! I love his art. It also looks like H.R. Giger is already being put to good use in this thread.

One of my favourite cover artwork in Metal. I love the concept. With the intro track being Odens Ride Over Nordland, it just appeared to me as a classic atmosphere.

I've always loved doom metal artwork

I... I should return to Arkham.

Johann (Henry) Fussli's Satan and the Birth of Sin


Pretty much anything from Gustave Dore could be metal as well. I love Paradise Lost



The last one Iced Earth did their "Burnt Offerings" album cover from. That is Dante's inferno, though

Already mentioned, but Beksinski is awesome! Too bad Artstor has nothing.

I'm not sure about most of them since I found them lurking, but I know a couple are Giger works.
