What's your favorite album cover?



I've always liked Burzum and Darkthrone's cover designs:


Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
(It's a painting by Theodor Kittelsen btw, Varg have used his paintings many times on covers and other things)


Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Marty Friedman -

Guitars: ESP LTD viper-500, a fake strat and an acoustic guitar( dont know the brand)
Amp: Randall RX20R
Effects: Boss mt 2 distortion pedal, Line 6 pod floor plus

I can't say I like any of the other album covers posted. Pink Floyd the one with burning man, i dont like as a cover, but it is an interesting picture.
