Let's say you are at a record store, or maybe even an online store and you find a record you've never heard of before that appeals to you based on the awesome cover artwork or the very metal name of the band. You look at the record closely trying to decipher whether you will like it enough to grant your money. What turns you off?

In my case what turns me off is seeing the words:

'ADRENALINE' or

'RAGNAROK' or

"PRIMITIVE" somewhere in the song titles...

Label for sure and certain cliches on the album itself.

Seeing a genera name in a song or album title. This point can be argued, but it says a lot to me. Venom's "Black Metal" is one thing. Nargaroth's "Black Metal ist Krieg" is another.

This is totally shallow, but pictures of band members with ridiculous wizard beards and neck tattoos. I instantly recoil when I see that bullshit.

Anything dorky, cartoonish, comic book style ect., having a picture of the band members on the front (the exception being classic Darkthrone and maybe a few others), and having too many colours/ no unified mood.

The involvment of certain individuals
Certain band-pics
Everything "retro" - styled, like all the Black Sabbath rip off Doom trend-shit
Song-titles that smell of brainless lyrics and total idiots
Certain labels
Re-releases with different artwork

And much more...

When it's a release / band / label I never heard of:

- layout that looks 100% digitally put together and / or show no effort or vision
- poor titles, obviously
- poor band logo
- printed www and / or email addresses
- label placing emphasis on themselves instead of the band by including an excessive amount of info / logos etc.
- label including information on their other releases / distro activity in the layout (Sombre, anyone?)
- easily recognizable photoshop effects (font glow, outlines, shadows etc), this is really annoying
- pixelated or otherwise smudgy / poorly blown up picture material
- Lucifer's sigil

Wow, that was fun.

I look in the grooves and put it away if I see shitty music.
