One or both of these statements apply to 95% of death metal covers. Human Waste could seriously be the cover of a children's book about the Munchy-Crunchy Monster.

I wonder: if the album cover wasn't of a Suffocation album would people still dig it as much?

Meh, it's okay...kind of cheeseball, but I don't hate it. At any rate, it's hardly the reason I'll be buying this album, so whatever.

Exactly, what did LesserPenis expect from Suffocation anyway?
I don't expect the music to be revolutionary either. It will be a good Suffocation album which won't thread any new grounds.
Fine with me.

Are you really that upset that I took the time to explain why I think the art is awful?

Do you really think that if I expect something to be average or worse, when it arrives I shouldn't comment on it?

Regardless, All Suffo art aside from Human Waste has been far better than this. So yes, I expected better.

No. Not a chance.

With that said, I don't think it's bad. Pretty much typical for a death metal record. I also try to rate bands more on their music and less on their cover art. Suffocation's last 2 releases have let me down. I hope this new one doesn't not.

yeah, I think it has something to do with people being upset with most of what Suffo has done recently, so any step-up will be appreciated much more than usual.

I'd find it funny if we found out that the original poster just created that cover and it's not the real one.

Maybe I give my opinion in a snobby way, but the opinions themselves aren't snobby.

I'm allowed to disagree with the majority without being guilty of sinisterly raining on anyone's parade.

You can lol at whatever you want to lol at.

Here you go:

= cliche, and not so brilliant

= brilliant

And it's cool - this is subjective. Hence you should get off my back for saying the Suffo art is awful. You should definitely avoid singling me out for not conforming. : /

For the record, I was expressing my frustration at the shittyness of the art because I wanted it to be good - not just to be a dick.
