    Have you seen the original one, the one in white, black and red, its fucking sick. Unfortunitly when Germans saw it they went berserk so they had to print it in gold and red.

    As for me my favorites are the Dark Fortress covers.

    Pretty much any album art by Wes Benscotter is sick as fuck.

    as previously mentioned, the Opeth covers are pretty cool... H.R Giger's (i think that's the correct name?) work has some symbolism and meaning... and Children Of Bodom - Follow the Reaper catches my eye a lot, probably because of the colour scheme..

    I like simple covers generally. Things like At the Gates - TRITSIO, Danzig s/t, Tomahawk s/t and so forth.

    some other wicked covers out there though;
    Arghoslent (as above)
    Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance
    Windir - Likerfd
    Opeth - Orchid
