This classic thrash metal album cover incorporates everything great about 80s and early 90s metal art: the integration of old and new tech. You have a goblin or demon creature getting brain surgery well, it's pretty hellish in there. The ultimate confrontation: distilled well, let's be honest. Look how cool that thing is!
The greatest album covers of the '90s. 40. Pet Shop Boys ‘Very’. One nice thing about CDs was that the hard plastic format allowed designers to experiment with molds and textures, like this studded, hazmat-like case from the always image conscious Pet Shop Boys. 39. Spiritualized ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space’. This druggy masterpiece came packaged like medicine, with the CD sealed like a giant pill under foil inside a plastic bubble. Any talk of ’90s music design would be remiss without Mark Robinson. Best known for fronting Unrest and running Teen Beat Records, the . area indie icon was a designer’s designer, referencing Pantone cards and printers’ guides in his clean, bright works. His giddy Air Miami project nails it. Advertising. 34. Nation of Ulysses ‘Plays Pretty for Baby’. Dressed like French leftist spies, Nation of Ulysses were not your older brother's punk band.
The '90s were one of the most fascinating decades in rock and metal, widening the gap between the two genres and putting fans on opposing sides, either clinging to their denim patch vests or trading them in for flannel shirts. Grunge signaled the death of metal supremacy that put a stranglehold on heavy music in the prior decade, but the underground kept the metal going strong while rock acts were assuming their role on the world's biggest stages.

Decibel Flexi Series. I’ve been involved in underground black metal for well over twenty years now. I find a lot of meaning and value in its tradition and aesthetics, the mystery and spirituality behind much of its core values. But, like everything, the inability to find humor in the darker corners and crevices denotes a lack of emotional depth. This set the bar so low in the ’90s for bad album covers that I’m pretty sure no one actually knows how this band sounds.

Looking back over the decades, heavy metal really transformed my ability to write music. I know this is true of many other musicians I have talked to. Metal is just a genre of music that attacks and dissects you – ready or not it’s coming. Those who choose to keep listening often find exactly what they were looking for. I started listening when I was 15 but age is really just a number. Taking into consideration the early 80s thrash bands up until present day, I have cataloged a gallery of over 60 various album covers. This showcase is meant to be a look at the artwork itself, as opposed to placing judgement on the band or the music.

The biggest curveball that 90s music threw us was, of course, grunge. In the lead up to its inflection point (Nirvana’s Nevermind), guitar-based music roughly fell into three categories: alternative rock, classic-rock standbys and an already-dimming hair metal scene. It was so lost that 1989 also marked the curious year that Jethro Tull won the best hard-rock/metal Grammy. It’s no coincidence that Blur’s second, sound-defining album was titled Modern Life Is Rubbish (or that its alternate title was Britain Versus America). The Cool Britannia movement hearkened back to the 60s and the fertile music scene it cultivated, referencing music legends such as The Jam, The Kinks, and The Who. Blur led the way for 90s music in the UK, albeit in fierce competition with their genre-defining peers Suede, whose just-as-buzzy self-titled debut emerged in 1993.
