Anyone could list some more artists name here for me to research?

I've always loved 3d art and metal album covers, and now I'm starting to learn how to make it 8)

Thank you

Kristian Wahlin (the guy who painted Emperor's "Into The Nightside Eclipse" and Dissection's "Storm Of The Light's Bane") and Spiros "Seth" Antoniou from Septic Flesh have some great cover art. And of course the obvious: Derek Riggs and Andreas Marschall.

Ed Repka is the definite metal cover artist in my opinion. No matter who you are, his art is iconic.

Megadeth, Municipal Waste, Death, Toxik, Atheist, Massacre, Sanctuary, Evildead

Noriyoshi Ohrai is a Japanese artist that is famous for his Star Wars illustrations. He did the Japanese poster for the original Trilogy and Godzilla Movies, and he is awesome. He is still alive but I'm not sure if he is still active. I think the bards need someone like him for the next covers because the last ones are generic and forgettable. The covers in most metal albums are fucking horrible to say the least.
