Slayer's Album Art Revealed
2009-09-16 by Evan Lacey | 45 Comments

Los Angeles thrash legends Slayer have posted the album art for their new album World Painted Blood, which is scheduled for release on November 3.

A posting on the band's website explains the concept: "World Painted Blood will initially ship with four special collector's edition CD covers. Each of the four covers will display one-fourth of a continental map illustrated with human skulls and bones; when placed together, the four images form a complete and grisly map of the world.

"All four of the initial CD packages will include a special blood-red, see-through top panel with the map displayed beneath it.

"The World Painted Blood Deluxe Edition will have its own special layout of the map cover art and will be in a double-digipak housed in a blood-red, see-through plastic sleeve. The Deluxe Edition will include the World Painted Blood CD, the "Playing With Dolls" DVD, a 20-minute animated graphic novel featuring music from the album (including part of a new non-album song), and an expanded booklet."

Not very fitting. Looks like the cover for some (insert here) emotional hardcore band.

I'm having a hard time coming to terms with Slayer and "handsome" being used in the same sentence.

actually that'd be amazing. They could collab on a cover of "Bye Bye Beautiful"


lol. That would be kinda cool. Even though it would be weird for her to sing a song that's clearly about her.

I didn't even look at it yet; but I bet it's over the top, has grisly images, maybe an upside down
cross or Jesus himself, blood, maybe an American flag and skulls.

Looks tasty! Album seems overdone until you remember that this is SLAYER, then it's just the standard cover. I hope this will be worth the long wait.
