    Sad that Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Infant Annihilator, and bands like that weren't featured. I think you guys should find photos of their album covers and rank most to least metal. Maybe throw some marilyn manson in there too just for fun... manson isnt really brutal metal, but industrial metal nonetheless lol

  • Samuel Clark

    Another very metal cover is City Of Evil by Avenged Sevenfold!

  • Kristján Ingi Jónsson

    Ok guys Surtur is a Titan of Volcanoes from Norse mytholigy :) If Surtur rises the world ends, it is Ragnarök

  • Šavage’s warwhoop Ootoot

    Surtur (ser-ter) he’s a myth from Viking mythology

  • Juan Pablo Barra Burotto

    Brujeria "Matando Gueros"

    Hair product isn't metal.

  • Indigo halm
    Indigo halm 29 days ago

    I cringed at the question of who frazetta is. Also he mentions frazetta and later there's an album cover by him and doesn't mention it
    may I suggest the cover of thee oh sees' "smote reverser"?

    Molly Hatchet is not metal. It’s southern rock but that’s more my preference

  • Spence3364

    But what about the Painkiller album cover?

  • Rolf Hartmann
    Rolf Hartmann Month ago

    Heroes from Sabaton has a very Metal cover.

  • Steeleye 2112
    Steeleye 2112 Month ago

    BOC - Some enchanted evening. No Contest. All the rest are derivative from this.

    • Steeleye 2112
      Steeleye 2112 Month ago

      LOL, are BOC metal - Me and my friends argued about this for thirty years and gave up when we found we were researching what the term definition actually means. That's a rabbit hole you want to avoid. Far as I'm concerned they are when it suits me and not when it doesn't and yes I am a knob.

    • Jerome Lund
      Jerome Lund Month ago

      You could be right.
      Never thought about BOC, but are they metal?
      Anyway, they've always had great album covers.

  • VytautasArt

    cant believe they dont know surtur, and pronounced it suture. wtf.

  • Kyle Hummer

    Nordic Mythology is probably the most metal thing ever

  • RunsWithBears

    Mastodon's Leviathan has a pretty sick album cover. It's also one of the most metal albums ever forged.

    • Rob Wence
      Rob Wence 29 days ago +1

      But some say it was just a tribute to the greatest album cover in the world...

  • Willem De Veroveraar

    surtur rising was one of the first more heavy metal albums i learned of

    They obviously don't know who Surtur is.

  • Jeff Stone

    Surely the most metal album cover is Public Image Ltd's 1979 masterpiece _Metal Box._

    Lack of knowledge about Surtur AFTER Ragnarok released (and brought that part of mythology to normies) is baffling.

  • Jack Walters

    You should have had some Cannibal Corpse covers there.

  • Vuizendrecht

    You would think, with "mythical" in their channel name, that they would know a bit about Norse mythology. Apparently not.

    Amon Amarth are metal gods, and they are NOT being represented right here. Maiden and Dio are gods of old... but Amon Amarth HAVE OVERTHROWN THE THRONE!!! THEY HAVE ASCENDED TO THE PEAK AND ARE THE RIGHTFUL LORDS OF METAL!!! DENY THIS AND FACE RAGNAROK NOT BY MY SIDE, BUT BENEATH MY SWORD !!!!!

    no megadeth or metallica?

  • Killer_ Street_Machines

    I’d argue that Indestructible Disturbed is much much more metal than Molly Hatchet Beatin’ The Odds

  • Luke Mccormick

    butchered at birth - cannibal corpse. NSFW the most metal cover ever.

    Still think "Mob Rule's" Album cover is the most eerie and sinister.

  • Ivon Craig
    Ivon Craig Month ago +1

    Molly Hatchet. Not a metal band and not THE most metal album covers, but still. They had a strange art direction for their albums, considering they were a southern rock band.

    I was upset that they didn't include album covers from bands like Stratovarius or Sonata Arctica, but was appeased when they gave it to Dio.

    I don't like the fact that they are mocking the cover of Amon Amarth's Surtur Rising. Amon Amarth is a great band, and although this cover is not the best, it is quite badass and metal
