Wolfmother – Woman

The artwork for Wolfmother’s debut album and the singles from it were all by Frank Frazetta. Here’s ‘Woman’. Need I say more?

Behold! The Monolith – Defender, Redeemist

This is the full cover of ‘Defender, Redeemist’ by Dusty Peterson. Yes, it’s a good vs. evil battle picture, but it’s oh so good. The action, the rage coming from below and the steady attack coming from above. Puts hairs on your chest.

Riffs by Behold! The Monolith –


What is actually going on in this picture I can’t quite tell you. The artwork was drawn by Luke and Kyle Thomas. Kyle is the vocalist/guitarist of Witch and he’s created, with the help of Luke(brother?), an intentionally fuzzy and enticingly scary album cover. Can’t stop looking closer at this one.

I haven’t found any more art, just have some Witch –

Wo Fat – Psychedelonaut

Rad artwork by Jessica M. Beethe.

I had only heard half a song before I bought this record. It does a great job of putting to paper the balance of Wo Fat’s gargantuan riffs and cosmic tripping of songs like ‘Enter The Riffian’, ‘Not Of This Earth’, ‘The Spheres Beyond’ and the title track ‘Psychedelonaut’.

Pallbearer – Sorrow And Extinction

Art by Sean Reynolds Williams aka Animetalphysical.

A haunting mix of a shipwreck and white reaper set on a distant astral plane gives a very heavy spacious feel here, the doorway and the escaping light providing us with focus. Much like the sound of Pallbearer.
