Title: "Them" different cover?
Post by: The Joker on January 02, 2011, 10:48:17 am
just found it on a friend of mine orkut..
he said he doesn't remember where did he get it..

I know it's not an official cover, probably a 'fan-made', but I loved it...anyone knows exactly where it comes from.

would be great for a future remastered version, like TSL and the Graveyard

It's really cool. First time I saw it was when king posted it to "Images and songs" thread. http://www.covenworldwide.org/CWWforum/index.php?topic=4264.0

Cool find Joker. The image kind of has a "Voodoo" vibe to it as well. \m/

That's what I like about it, it is very clear and terrifying. It definitely stands out.

For fan art it's cool, but not for an official release. Looks too digital, like from a computer game. I didn't like the new Spider's Lullabye cover either, but the Graveyard remaster cover I like more than the original. The only flaw is the drop-shadow effect on the logo.

That is dark & evil looking for sure! I like it. It would be great for a "Them" prequel Album/CD cover IMO :king:

This.  If this was used for official artwork, I'd be very disappointed.  Hand-drawn art is by far cooler.

I agree with you on that, but it seems like a lot of bands both older and newer are using computerized artwork on their albums these days. It's probably a lot cheaper than having an artist hand draw the whole album art and that usually includes the front of the album, the back and the inside.

I prefer the original artwork.

looks cool aside from the fact the sky does not match the art

I drew "Amon" two times a long time ago, and I wouldn't mind drawing it again, my friend :) :king:.

Sorry, I don't like it. Looks like a bad cover for a pc-game.
I prefer real handdrawn covers like the original Them-cover over 3-D/paintshop any day!
