Perhaps nowhere is a striking cover image more important than in death metal. Countless metal musicians say that what drew them to death metal - or what initially repelled them but piqued their curiosity - was the cover art for bands like Cannibal Corpse and Deicide. Death metal bands are still trying to one-up each other with explicit and grisly images from slaughterhouses or crime scenes. Check out Justin M.
