This is my 'favorite'. I mean, what is that supposed to be? A planet with studs?

Some non-metal. I used to be a booker at a venue and I received some pretty horrible cover art through the years. I mean, look at this shit:

Sit with the guru? Really? Why would I wanna do that?

That Bitter End cover is the same as Chet Williamson's horror novel Soulstorm. Soooo... which came first? (idk)

Soulstorm, 1986: http://www.chetwilliamson.com/2010/03/soulstorm/
Harsh Realities, 1990: https://www.discogs.com/Bitter-End-Hars ... se/2699271

Quote from chetwilliamson
"I loved the bizarre, surrealistic cover art, but was later told by someone at Tor that it was thought so grotesque that it had hurt sales."

Quote from Jim Warren
"I painted Soul Storm in the 80s for a book cover which at that time I had painted close to 200 covers.
This is one of the few that I think is striking enough to be published as Fine Art for the walls."

https://jimwarren.com/portfolio/raise-f ... ce-cooper/

"Alice Cooper was one of my favorite bands since they came out in early 70s. I was exited to paint this album cover for him in 1985. I didn’t meet him until 2010 when he was in town for a concert, which I brought my kids Drew and Arte ( 16 and 18 at the time). We had a deep conversation with the shock rocker such as whose kids had the messiest bedrooms, he thought his did. I wasn’t so sure about that. Later my daughter commented “Can you believe what a nice guy he was?”."

Saw this today. The music isn't bad at all, actually it's pretty good. But holy shit this album art is the most hideous thing I've ever seen.
