Sometimes, the internet has ways of answering questions we didn’t even know we wanted to ask. Case in point, Deathmetal.org picked up on some illustrations posted on the Nuclear War Now! forums that depict illustrations from late Czech artist Helena Zmatlíková paired with classic extreme metal album titles. The end result is pretty hilarious. Hopefully this is the next big trend in album covers; there’s something slightly unsettling about robbed innocence that would work well for many acts. Fingers crossed that the next Burzum record picks up an out-of-context public domain children’s story illustration instead of 19th-century European paintings.
