Last week both veteran and upcoming Metal artists talked about some of their all-time favorite album covers and the long lasting impressions and influences that many of those visuals have imprinted on them. Today, we keep exploring this subject and asked another slew of mighty metal musicians: “What’s your all-time favorite Rock/Metal album cover artwork and why?” Let’s see how they answered…

Cattle Decapitation’s newest album Monolith of Inhumanity is one of the best albums of this year so far. Between this release and Katana and Eternal Helceraxe’s newest offerings, extreme metal bands are going to find it hard to top these three albums. Granted we are only 5 months into 2012, but damn this is some good stuff!

The masters of gore-infused death metal are back and better than ever. Cattle Decapitation will be releasing their fifth full-length release The Harvest Floor on January 20th. Technically savvy, this is the band’s best release to date. By combining an unparalled technicality with a blistering attack, Cattle Decapitation has created a masterpiece of the macabre. All the trademark bits fans have come to expect from the band are here but everything has been kicked up a notch. This record seems faster, harder and more brutal; if that is even possible. I recently caught up with lead singer Travis Ryan to discuss The Harvest Floor and the band in general.
