Controversial Album Covers V (Pt. 12)

Year: 1987

Exodus: Pleasures of the Flesh

The Problem: The original artwork was going to feature an illustration of Exodus depicted as cannibals preparing and eating their meal. However, the cover was considered controversial and was changed to a photograph of the band sitting in a bar. Just prior to the album’s release, the original artwork was promoted by the record company in music magazines with the headline “Metal’s Heaviest Meal”, and was also available as a limited edition picture disc LP.

My Take: When the title said, “Pleasures of the Flesh,” I had something completely different in mind. How about you? It isn’t too graphic to be honest with you.
