I have $50 that says at least half of the people who are bitching about song titles here think titles like "Reign in Blood" and "Butchered at Birth" are literary genius.

Also, that album art is horrible. Looks like the person (Ok seriously, is that a he or a she? Do I even dare to say HeShe(It)?) is trying to seduce but is doing a bad job.

I'm really not that excited so far. Slipknot is doing a bad job getting people amped for the first release in 5 years including losing 2 members. Looks like another Avenged Sevenfold lmao

If you're not laughing at the cover art or a myriad of the song titles, you're probably like me; chuckling because this album isn't seeing a release until October. You know, the month of Halloween...

I sort of get what they're going for with the album art. If they took it in a different direction it probably could've been a
really haunting image but the way it is now just doesn't really accomplish that
