PostSubject: Different Albums, Same Album Covers!   Fri Nov 16, 2007 11:40 am

Someone brought this topic up on another board I frequent... ever seen 2 albums by two different bands/artists that have the same cover art? Here are two examples:

Morbid Angel's BLESSED ARE THE SICK

And Hexenhaus' A TRIBUTE TO INSANITY



Revenant's PROPHECIES OF A DYING WORLD


And Robert Plant's 29 PALMS (CD Single)


On a side note, my brother was good friends with the Revenant guys (they were from Jersey) and their album came out a year or two prior to the Plant CD... they thought it was rather funny that Plant used the same photo. What are the odds that an obscure death/thrash metal band that only released one album would ever have something in common with the mighty Robert Plant, eh? Laughing

Any other examples of this strange phenomenon out there??

Nevermore - In Memory EP



Funeral - Tragedies + Tristesse re-release

And I'm sure there is at least another band that have used this cover, but I can't recall their name now.

On a somewhat related note, does anyone remember an obscure NWOBHM band called Blade Runner? The cover art for their debut album (titled Hunted) was going to be used for a Savage album, but in it's unfinished version, logos were switched and Blade Runner got it instead.

Yea, they were! 🤘 My bro was (and still is) good friends with Henry "Veg" Veggian (guitar/vocalist). Last I heard Veg is married and living in North Carolina someplace.

Back in the day, Revenant were like the "go-to" local opening band whenever a national thrash act stopped in Jersey to play, saw 'em a bunch of times.

Here's two for you also,



Geasa - Angel's Cry (Season of Mist 1999)




At Vance - Only Human (AFM 2002)


It was drawn for Geasa but since they could not afford the piece outright, Luis Royo kept the art and was free to use it elsewhere.

Limp, an alternative/pop/punk band released their album Guitarded back in 1999.


Leslie West released his own Guitarded in 2011.

The Morbid Angel/Hexenhaus doesn't REALLY count because it's not original album art - it's a 17th century painting by Jean Delville.

Here's another one:

Nightwish - Once


Evanescence EP


It's actually a sculpture in Rome.

On an old music site I wrote for, I did an article on this very same image. It's been used a ton of times! Aside from these two, off the top of my head, it's been used on the cover of a Lenny Kravitz single and a Odes Of Ecstasy album. There are a ton of others, too. Wonder if I can find that article again.

troglodyte dawn used the same image on his debut as Atomic Rooster.

The cover that was supposed to be used for the pre-Kiss band, Wicked Lester, was eventually used by a punk band, which name escapes me at the moment.

This same pic is also the inner-tray artwork (under the CD) in Bruce Dickinson's Chemical Wedding.

Bruce must be a big fan. He's another Blake drawing...


Look familiar?

Yeah, the entire Chemical Wedding album was inspired by the works of William Blake.

Isn't "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" written around some Blake poem?

It's based on a poem but not by Blake. "Rime" was written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

And the Maiden song was written by Harris, not Dickinson.

Bumping this one since we're talking about lack of originality in album covers

Is the lake of originality near Mount Doom? Maybe it's the lake near lonely mountain?

It's right off exit 3 of Get Bent Boulevard.

What a Face
