Eerie looking figure, wish there was a bigger shot.

I've been working with the Oakshire Brewery on their side project of barrel-aged ales called Hellshire. They hired me to develop a whole visual mythology for the beers & i'm going to do all the labels as time progresses. This is the first of them, they're talking about doing four or so a year. I'm quite stoked on this project.

I'm sure this was a jazz singer called Gal
This looks like a cd i would buy, but I'm sure the music didnt suit me when I listened.
i'm sure this music wasnt as cool as the cover either...
This would appear to me as a great dreampop album but it is actually hard rock.
Yamashita Yosuke Trio- Arashi. This is supposed to be a really scary free jazz record, legendary but obscure and rare too somehow.
Jneiro Jarel. I think this is a hiphop record.
Kuroyurishimai- Fukasa. One of the legions of bands that sounds like Dead Can Dance, but I listen to a lot of that, it sounds nice enough.
Locrian- Crystal World
Mahojin- Babylonia Suite. I adore this cover by Remedios Varo, I hoped this would sound as weird as the cover, but it is supposed to be a modestly pleasant mellotron driven album, but I like to pretend dream that this album is one one of the weirdest and greatest things ever made. I often like to look at album covers and be inspired/get ideas for what I think it "should" have sounded like and then do art based on that, just like any other type of cover, poster, advert/trailer/screenshot or name/title that inspires me, it is good to take the expectations and base art on it( however pleasing or different the actual artwork ends up being when you experience it for real).
No Mercy. I hope it sounds as exciting as it looks.
Has anyone heard this? Great cover.
I like covers like this despite some people might find it cheesy and artificial, it still gets my imagination going.
I hope this is good as the cover.
I really want this Aghast album, I'm not sure this is really a cover. But this is some of my preferred type of Black Metal imagery, although I could give countless more types of BM imagery I like, there is a lot of stuff I dont connect with.
Thees Oh Sees. Ayone heard it?
Yoshiko Sai- Taiji No Yume. I think this is one of the best covers ever, she sings slightly moody ballads but nothing as odd and spooky as I would have liked.
You can hear it here
Premiata Forneria Marconi- Storia. I listened to this recently, one of the more famous italian prog albums and I liked it fine, but I wished it sounded more like the cover, some people think it is ugly but I love it.
Don Bradshaw Leather- Distance Between Us. This is a crazy dark prog album with one of the best album covers of all time. It suggests a new level of outsiderness which most proggers and punks never get near. There are a lot of rumors about this band. I can only find half of this, so if anyone can find the whole album please call me.
