Over the last several months we’ve been posting artwork on the NCS Facebook page every day. There’s not a lot of rhyme or reason to the selections, other than the fact that they are strange enough or hellish enough to please my bloodshot eyes. Some of them have been created as covers for metal albums, though most haven’t had that purpose.

The Italian artist Paolo Girardi is someone whose work I’ve included in those Facebook posts, in addition to featuring here at NCS. I watch his Facebook page like a hawk for new creations, because they never fail to make my mouth gape open like a gaffed fish. Today he unveiled the painting you see above. I’m posting this on our Facebook page today, but I decided this should be spread across the front of the NCS site, too.

It’s the cover for a forthcoming album, though Paolo is keeping the band and album names secret for now. I already want it, because with a cover like this, I have a powerful feeling the music will be . . . devastatingly blasphemous.

Be sure to click the image above to see an even larger version of the image. And Merry Fucking Christmas to one and all!


  1. That is pretty damn awesome. I’m a sucker for dark imagery like that too, so I’m definitely gonna hit up his FB.
