I love that cover too. Seems like Zig artworks can range from pretty horrible to awesome, just like that.

The new Suffocation artwork perfectly fits the title, "Blood Oath". It has great colours, evil vibe, it looks kinda old school, very death metal and it aslo very much in their style. I really don't see any problem.

Agreed. One of his best; it has a distinct visual atmosphere that is often missing from DM covers. It's still got that shitty Zig blurryness, and as though the whole thing has been plastered with Photoshop's 'plastic wrap' filter... but something about it works too.

One of the other few Zig covers I find exceptional;


Though it'd be slightly better if the teeth weren't visible at all.

Yes and I was just making fun of your opinion.
Being on your back makes my balls tingle so I don't feel like jumping off just yet.

Sure enough you're free to vent your opinion but as the old grumpy mofo I am I think it's funny when people take the time to articulate their reasons as to why something sucks.
If you don't like it, fine, move on to whatever makes your buttocks wet.

I "ruined" their thread about a gore movie by making it meaningful.

I make conversations serious when they don't want them to be serious, basically.

But they'd be more receptive if I was more polite and didn't persistently overreact.

Goddamn some Zig artworks are indeed horrible. I checked his website and there's cool stuff in there though. And his style is blurry and less polished, and thats not really a bad thing considering how everyone is going for the super polished digital looking covers these days.

Nah, just saying I hate artists who mask their lack of talent with horrible shadows and shading.

i.e. masticate to dominate, gore blessed to the worms, etc.
