Cynic - Carbon Based Anatomy

Best album covers November 2011

Greetings my dear followers! It is once again time to wrap up last months best album art. You could easily see the Yuletide coming ’cause there was so much more albums out there to choose from. Like always there was some really good stuff and also covers that will appear on my 2011 collection of funniest album covers. This year, I have many of those…

I was glad to see some really good illustrations like Fastway’s “Eat Dog, Eat”. Also “Draconian Times MMXI” reminds me a flowery illustrated version of my own recent design for Hostile. Black Tusk has an incredibly nice illustration and color scheme.

Metsatöll has an unique visual way to express their identity. It is related to ancient Estonian folk art and it fits perfectly to their album art. That’s why you can see their cover of “Ulg” in this months listing. Pretty close “Ulg” comes the cover of “Afape” by Lantlos. Good water coloring is rarely seen in album covers today.

Four Year Strong’s “In Some Way, Shape, or Form” is cool as f*ck. I would like to see it printed in a huge size in a poster. It would take ages to watch all the details and to think how all the items are related to each others. Very different and nice indeed.

This month’s winner is by no means strange band to anyone. Disturbed has once again done a really good album artwork. Like Iron Savior’s cover it is maybe not very creative but it just works. I like the way it is constructed and built. The character known in previous albums is standing in the middle surrounded by scary and robotic looking “Lost Children”. Nice!

 

Enough jargon. Be sure to wait for the wrap up of 2011 in early January. Before that date, I will post other cool stuff so be patient. Have a metal Christmas!
