Post How Metal bands plunder Beksinski's art

dozens of recent cover arts of Metal band are a "poster-ized" Beksinski painting. I want to start a thread to take inventory of all of them. Just for the fun and to denounce a severe form of lack of imagination; have some young, beginner-artists work, damn!

List will began shortly...

I don't even know that guy. And I always thought the "Antithesis of Light" cover (the only one from the list I know) was an original artwork... Anyway, I've always liked it. :;):

They even modified the colour of that painting! Shame, it's more in brown tones originallly - and they added that big figure with the sword in the middle.

but that's funny, because the first time I was confronted to Beksinski's art was with the Evoken's cover too; that's a reflex I have: whenever something interests me, or touches me in a way or another: I want to know more; so I asked Vince of Evoken about that painting, then I bought the complete catalogue. I usually do the same with films: whenever a film catches my attention enough, I want to know everthing the director did.

Actually considered one of his works as a cover candidate too haha. However, his style seems a bit 'ambient' to me.

Why would someone think putting a band logo on a Beksinski painting is a good idea? All it does is ruin a perfectly fine painting!

Actually it seems to work Ok in most of the cases - don't see any that would be totally ruined by logo

Ice Ages is neither metal nor a "band" (unless "one-man band" could be suited for it somehow)
