My all time favourite is Cannibal Corpse's Tomb of the Mutilated. Rolls sex and violence into one tasty bundle.

Interestingly, CC were the first band that sprang to mind for me - while the cover art is somethimes unsavoury, it's always very well done.

Also, Conners - :thumbsup: :cool:

Actually, one other I thought of that is kinda simple but I like is Tool's "Aenima" with the holographic eye.

Some of my favourites of his. I'm way more into Seagrave's old school painted style rather than the modern digital approach most cover artists seem to use these days.

None of these low-res scans show the incredible amount of detail in them though
