25 Best Hard Rock + Metal Album Covers of 2015

An album cover has the ability to take a band’s musical vision to the next level. Artwork alone can inspire anyone scrolling through CDs or vinyl┬áto pick up an album without ever having heard the band just because the cover is so compelling. It holds the same power for bad artwork, which can cause great albums to slip under the radar. When a band releases a new album, the first taste fans typically get is the album cover and all sorts of opinions are cast without even having two seconds of music to hear.
