This was initially intended for Metal Church - Blessing in Disguise - but they decided not to go with it. Maybe this is the one they decided on when David Wayne was still in the band?

I don't have anything to contribute to this thread at the moment, but it's a cool idea. Hope some others can think of some examples.

Unreleased album artwork? I think you meant "Rejected artwork for released albums" (hehe) Van Halen debut WAS released! (hehe)

Anyway, here's the original artwork for Exodus's "Pleasures of the Flesh". Ten times better than the artwork with the bandmembers..

Nice thread. Thumbs up for the Exodus, but mostly for the Metal Church rejected cover.

That Beatles one is terrible, considering the era, and the beatles were a soft band, not hardcore by any means. The idea of babies body
parts is a PR disaster.

The problem with this article is they didn't cite where they got that picture of that cover, the picture was from a 2009 ebay sale see this link http://sleazeroxx.com/van-halens-origin ... -for-sale/ at the time this cover leaked the band was denying they made it fast forward 6 years later they admit to doing the cover with actual information on why it was rejected.

Interesting. Well what about this one. States basically that Metallica Kill em All was intended to be "Metal up Your Ass" with a different
cover.
