And what do you think makes them funny? perhaps maybe that they look bad? did you think of that mr einstein? Just cause it's intended to be bad don't make it good

I see it as a tongue in cheek response to IDM album covers getting way too serious/homogenised in the early 2000s, and an extension of what RDJ was doing in the mid to late 90s. Both the Ceephax and DMX Krew covers posted here have clearly been designed *well*, but convey that cheesy vibe of 80s (DMX) and I dunno, bling as fuck gangsta rap or something (Ceephax). Don't get me wrong, I used to think Ceephax's album covers were terrible until I saw that they were actually intentionally designed like that. *Real* bad design wouldn't be so crisp and well executed.

I'm prepared for the inevitable triggering but I hate this cover so much

The Five piece 80's hair metal band is a great place to start. I'm at a 50+ year old college radios station with a lot of great old LPs and every now and again I run into some awesomely awful shit.

Really dude, you're gonna take a cheap shot at Armored Saint? My uncle was in that band and they were quite respectable in their time. It was a thing of the era to have epic themes and fantasy-inspired apparel. You can bully 'the Saint' all you want my my uncle and the gang have changed lives with their music, which AS fans agree is timeless.

      So I spent the majority of last night (12am-5am) messing around with this thing. It's a programme based off of that deepdream thing google had awhile back. anyways it's free, you just sign up and upload an image and select a filter you want to use. I got some pretty cool ones, some not as interesting. in the time it took between uploads I was on here reading thru different threads, so I figured i'd share a bunch of them. As you all know by now, my favourite æ album is of course their best album, and that album, as we all know and can agree upon,   is Quaristice. So naturally I spent the most time with that one. I would have done more but I musste sleepen. If anyone feels like doing some of their other album covers, or even other cool covers, please post 'em up!
      Note that I always chose to keep the original colours when filtering.

      For those of you who haven't seen this mentioned in the FWP thread you're in for a treat...
       
      So this is how the festival was promoted
       

       
      And this is how it was described
       
       
      ...and it ended up like this.
