These covers are disgusting....yeah I decided to look at them just to see if they were...do these bands think this is cool? It certainly isn't and if they do, one must wonder what kind of people they are if they would glorify such horrifying images.

Seriously, I must confess that similar thoughts entered my mind. A joke or parody is one thing, but these appear to glorify the gruesome simply for gruesome's sake…

Liked the Poison cover. Pretty damn gruesome. I got one that's more scary than gruesome, lately I was going through some albums to sell on Ebay because haven't had a turntable in years and I found this Uriah Heep "Abominog" and did a double take. I don't know where this demonic thing came from, I don't remember buying it. I think it sold. Great Halloween decoration.

The Poison cover is the purest essence of dying, malarial jungle nightmares. Wrought from the screams of hordes of screaming early-onset pubescent girls leaking rivers of hysteria induced urine, like, uh . . . Hella bad shit yo!

Does anyone remember Bloodrock? That was 40 years ago. I'm afraid gross-out rock doesn't do anything for me, but this stuff should appeal to the Faces of Death midnight screening crowd. I do kind of like the Black Flag cover, for some crazy reason…

Wow. I don't know what to say. This is disgusting and evil. I don't know what this has to do with guitar. I think that I will subscribe to another magazine. You can keep you satanic crap.

You read the title, then were surpised, disgused and shocked? Really? I think you really need to re-think this? I mean that's like going to a whore-house and being appauled at all the hookers traipsing around...

I remember that Brujeria's Matando Gueros CD cover was talked about a lot in the Latin American media. Apparently, the severed head was real, the guy disappeared with his fiance in Texas. Their bodies were found in a ditch or something, I don't remember exactly the details. Federal agents wanted to investigate Brujeria about the photo, but it turned out that the photo was taken from a Mexican magazine.
