Ofcorse the music is the most important. Everybody knows that.

But thinking the physical apearance, and only that, what would you concider to be the most beautiful vinyl presentation?

I would say Nihil Nocturne- Vahnsin.tod.Verrat. The music is however not amongst my favorite, althoug I spin it from time to time. I really like it from Demon of the threshold and out.

Does anyone know if its the same guy who did the artwork for Dead Congrgation- Graves? I think the angelic figure on the front looks alitle like the same.

Is the Dead Congregation artist the same guy that did the cover for the Kaosritual album?

I love the artwork on Deathspell Omega's 'Kenose', both vinyl and CD. Very classy, yet thoroughly oddball. Also I love the artwork on the Bone Awl releases.

Dont know about the Kaosritual, but I know he has done Verminous lp. Quite different from the Dead Congregation.

yeah, sumerian daemons is great. Should be done a vinyl version. Seth is a good artist.

The guy who did the Dead Congregation artwork is Tim Ketola. He also did artwork for DSO, Watain, Repugnant (i think), Murdersquad, Abcess, and many others. I'm not sure if he did the Kaosritual, although the style is similar. I'm pretty sure he did the Verminous too, as mentioned above.

The guy also is the writer of the killer Dauthvs zine.

They are one of rare bands that use modern art on their realizations.Most of the bands are still into the woodcuts,Gustave Dore,etc..

Some classics with both great coverartwork and good layout.

Autopsy - Acts of the Unspeakable

This slab oozes sickess, filth, putridity and just everything that is wrong but enjoyable, hehe. Music, artwork and layout got hand in hand here. There may be more graphic depictions and a higher technical proficiency when it comes to painting but only few that capture the music so well.
I always liked the hand lettering done by Mr. Reifert.

Bolt Thrower - Realm of Chaos
Perfect layout, perfect artwork, perfect music.

Working in a gallery, I have to disagree here. Wink
But the situatin is similar to metal today - there is SO much stuff out there that it can be hard to find the good stuff. Never forget the role of the market as well!
I could now open a can of worms by asking for a definition of what "modern" means but... lets not do that.
Anyway, there is lots of interesting contemporary art.

Im really into the modern art so I will desagree here.
Kandinsky or Klee are million times better and depper than any religious woodcut or renaissance painting.

I have no idea if I "know better" but I can totally understand your statement - I used to have a VERY conservative view on art and especially painting which was expanded gradually during the years. And of course I still come across some stuff in exhibitions which is meaningless crap but has the right name/reputation/etc to it that it gets exhibition space.

But lets get back to topic:

Portal strike me with their handling of artwork, layout and packaging.
Not for everyone but definitely unique.
