"Them" different cover?
« 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.
THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE!

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.

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

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!
