Do Sick Brutal Album Covers Make The Band !

Do sick cd covers really make the band better ? Brutal , Death Grind , Gore Grind , you tell me I know some bands that have cool covers but later when listening to the new cd they kind of sucked so off they go to cd heaven ( sold or traded ) you tell me ?

Yes I have to say I agree back in the day the cooler the cover the cooler the band . But back in the day they did not have shit loads of cool brutal death metal bands my first heavy metal thrash metal band I should say that I ever listened to was Slayer - Reign in Blood and it took off from there it was all Cannibal Corpse after that !!!

I don't think they make the band, but I think they do add to the feel of the album.

Quality cover art can be a good selling point, and definitely helps sell merch.

Good art doesn't make the band, but it can draw people into check out something they may not have otherwise.
