Post The cover art of Andreas Marschall
http://www.metal-archives.com/artists/A ... hall/14002

Kinda like how Ed Repka pretty much created the entire concept of thrash metal cover art...I never realized how expansive this guy was. His style pretty much determined the entire look of a genre. When you consider it's not just album covers but also T-shirts and other merch, you have the creative eye of one person defining the image of bands in the minds of THOUSANDS of fans.

Fairly impressive, I'd say. The world of heavy metal cover art is crazy small.

He really likes the "solitary figure in the middle of a spooky terrain" type of scene, doesn't he? Hehe.

I like a lot of those covers though. Especially many of the Obituary ones.

Edit: I didn't even read the above, lol. Good work.

Marschall is great. Blind Guardian and Dark Moor covers have sucked since he stopped painting them. In Flames covers AND albums have sucked since he stopped painting them, such is his power :lol:

Hammerfall too, forgot to mention them.

Despite that,I think his work has a lot of variety to it.you can really look at a lot of his work and automatically think it's him.unlike say...Dan Seagrave, who you can spot a mile away.
