Album cover Research

I had to look online for some album covers that hardcore/metalcore bands have used before for their own covers so that i could get some ideas before i go ahead and start designing this album cover for the metalcore band called ‘The Unknown’.

One thing ive realised with metalcore bands album covers is that they are all dark and mysterious and normally when they have a design on their covers, there is always a type of illustrative design that when we look at it, we dont think its human. I also realised that all of the bands have their own illustrative logo but all in words.

I think i will try and keep my album cover looking weird and along the subject of being unknown and once i have some that i will make the unknown a illustrative logo that they could use in the future.
