Best Album Art Ever of the Day: Axel Rudi Pell’s Into the Storm
If you, like me, are still reeling from the fact that the cover art for the new Crystal Viper album isn’t more metal than steel fucking iron with a titanium cock, hopefully the cover art for Into the Storm, the latest offering from our old buddy Axel Rudi Pell, will bring you some comfort. Not content to just have a ship in a storm, or a pirate ship in a storm, or a pirate ship in a storm being attacked by sea serpents, ARP’s cover portrays a pirate ship shaped like a skull in a storm being attacked by sea serpents. And for good measure, Saturn is there. This thing is exactly one pair of tits away from being so metal as to bring Jeff Hanneman back to life.
Into the Storm comes out January 21 on Steamhammer/SPV. Awesome cover aside, I think it’s a safe bet that the music contained on the album will be unintentionally hilarious.
