Do you have any favorite Metal album cover that might be even your all-time Metal album cover ever?

Well, I do...

Pretty much as Sargon posted. Most of the eighties Iron Maiden covers are sublime, with Seventh Son and Somewhere In Time slugging it out for supremacy. Sad Wings is beautiful as well, Luxi. So many others to mention.

I really like most of the classic Dan Seagrave's old school death metal album covers as well, but this Suffocation one really caught my attention. 

Others I really like:
Entombed- Left Hand Path
Benediction- Transcend the Rubicon
Craven Idol- Towards Eschaton
Disma- Towards the Megalith (Probably my 2nd favorite album cover of all time)

There's many more...I love death metal artwork.

We could do a whole thread about Dan Seagrave and how awesome so many of his covers are, but this is one of my favorites:
