I ain't gonna lie, tanks are sweet. But if Babymetal decide their next album cover is a photoshoot of me fucking Rachel Starr and Asia Carerra I'm not automatically gonna give the music an A+.
The music obviously has to live up to it. Tank on cover? Sweet! Music is shitty, Italian Power Metal? I feel betrayed.
But there's a good chance that any album with a tank on it is good. Especially when it's Death Metal, which it better damn should be. Tanks make everything better.
Shit, if there's anything I'd hold against Bolt Thrower it's that there has never been a tank on the cover of any album. They do get a pass because many songs are about tanks, they got artillery cannons on covers, as samples and subjects in songs regularly and lots of covers are WH40k artwork.
And the perfect start to a Death Metal album goes to Hail of Bullets:
I fucking love that album and that start of it so much.
