NSFW: The Most Fucked-Up Album Cover Sent to Us this Week 6/9

Metal ain’t for the faint of heart, and neither is opening mail at Revolver HQ. For every free bottle of AC/DC wine and limited-edition copy of the new Soundgarden reissue we receive, we get sent promos of albums with cover art that just make us say, “Really?” Or sometimes even “Bleeeggghhh.” But mostly, “Fuck, man, you gotta see this shit!”

In the spirit of that last reaction, below is the cover art of a promo sent to us this past week, for the new album, ‘Acrotomophile Mutilator,’ by band-whose-logo-we-can’t-fuckin’-decipher. Is it Weekly? Wfeckoy? Who knows? And who even wants to know? Good luck with this direction, whatever you guys are called.

  • DarkenedMatter

    Looks like it says infection.

    • Sean Jones

      Yeah, band name is Infection

  • Palexk

    A quick Google gives the band name as Infection. But now I have to delete my history. Thanks, guys.

  • Anthony Nadeau

    Yes I also review music and some of the artwork that bands use sometimes are pretty bad.Makes you think of all the art they could possibly use and this is it? This is the image they want the world to know them for?
    But then again The Beatles and their original cover of Yesterday & Today was so controversial in it’s day they had to change the cover as it upset so many of their fans.

    Nunslaughter with Hells Headbangers have some pretty messed up images as well

  • orlok5

    don’t know what’s the big deal about this. looks like a typical cannibal corpse album cover

  • Toxic Ty

    looked it up: the band is Infection

  • Ebert

    and we still don’t have artwork for Smell the Glove. not cool, society.

  • Nino R. Mejia

    weak….
    Kinda standard for Brutal Death Metal and Slam Death Metal Bands.
    some pornogrind bands have artwork sicker than this. Way way sicker.

  • Jason Alford

    I’ve seen way more brutal…check out Mangled Atrocity’s Grotesque Rituals of Mutilation.

    • XanaliumVicodone

      Now THAT is a fucked-up cover. Nice.

  • Bryan Silva

    Look up the album, “The Anomalies of the Artificial Origin” by Abominable Putridy. Far more brutal than this.

    • XanaliumVicodone

      Dude not really….just some giant creature emerging from an incubator-type thing and butchering some scientists? This cover’s WAY more realistic and brutal. Plus, gotta dig the BDSM ;)

  • chloe

    Its by infected

  • Raul Flores Tello

    INFECTION

  • Mel226

    If they have to sell their music by depicting extreme violence against women, their music isn’t worth a shit.

    • Bob de la Bob

      Ah, but if it were violence against men their music must have been great?

      • Steve

        No it would still suck

  • Magzzz

    Cannibal Corpse had a far more graphic cover iirc

      Of course, they were the pioneers! Vince Lock is such an inspiration for many illustrators doing artwork covers for extreme metal bands.

  • Adolfo Kony Stahlin the 18th

    I guess the slamming brutal death genre that consist of copy cats/cookie cutter rip offs of each other hasn’t made its way fully to the public… *sigh* so many bands in my city and also other bands that are alike have the same motivation in mind. create the most fucked up piece of artwork and go around promoting it like a crazy fucking nut, constantly trying to one up each other until a consensus is reached and all agree that everyone is as equally brutal, but spark a new completion of make-believe terms that you think will catch on and trademark your sound, such as the words “Guttural slam/disgusting guttural grind/bestial torture pornoslam/ and all kinds of dumb, mediocre, quadruple-dropped Eb on a fucking 10 string shit storm that these bands call Music. theres a very thin, almost hair-line boundary between good, shocker type gimmick shit, and stupid toilet noises that sound like a mentally ill person recorded himself trying to flush a widescreen tv down a urinal while masturbating to reruns of happy days…. I love it deeply and couldn’t wish for such a better genre than that of brutal slamming gross shit. Just kidding go die. Ill stick with my periphery, pierce the veil, and bVb. and a7x. Also, Drugs are stupid, and half of these bands are probably all alcoholics have succumb to the wonders and insights of shit like meth or my personal fuckin favorite… krodil… gives a great rush boost for those who wish to re-enact such atrocities. I wonder if you all will think im trolling, because if so , then you people that think so are absolutle fucking correct and you just read a whole rant on bullshit. insomnia is a helluvadrug

    • Frank Gomez

      cool story bro

      • cpt howdy

        his parents better hold back on that mt dew.

        • Adolfo Kony Stahlin the 18th

  • dan

  • Edward Turpel
