Here they are!
This month offered nice variety of different covers. It was actually pretty hard task to choose the best since there were so many good choices available. One of the biggest and positive surprises was The Fuzztones cover. At first look I was already putting it to my “most funniest” category but deeper look proved it was a true gem. Ralf Scheepers just released amazing solo album “Scheepers“. The thumbnail image looks like there is this raging bald guy in fury, but closer look tells there´s one of the best todays vocalists high pitching a scream and holding a microphone. Also In Extremos cover was funny, entertaining and really cool.
Emerald Sun´s cover is maybe lacks some imagination yet the figure in it stands out brilliantly with really good photo retouching. I also really dug Betzefer´s cover a lot! It has unusual logo placement and the image is really effective. The font choice for the album titling prevented it to be no 1.
And the winner is something that stopped me what ever I was doing. Simplicity is usually the key to everything and Cycle of Pain´s self titled album does the job. The skulls and the logo design pulls out beatyfully. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Anyway, enough talk. Take a look at my choices and feel free to comment. I´m currently (err… like last month…) fixing and improving my website and trying to get it up and running pretty soon.
