Was the cover motive of Into The Pandemonium inspired by Black Sabbath's Greatest Hits album? The cover is a mirrored portion of The Triumph of Death by Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

Interesting. I've never seen that before. Is that one of those packages put together that didn't even involve the band and all the money went to their management?

I think this record (As well as "Live at Last") was courtesy of Patrick Meehan.

ANGELCORPSE also used 'Triumph of Death' as the cover for their Hammer of Gods album.

The cover from ITP is a detail from Heironymous Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights triptych (the right/'hell' panel), is it not?

That it is. The artwork also seemed inspirational for at least one Cathedral album as well.

Jeronimus Bosch was a painter ahead of his time, his paintings were used to scare the illiterate farmers about the fate they could expect after death if they didn't live their lives according to the church. One seventeenth century painter that would not look bad on a CF or Triptykon cover is El Greco.

There is also a videoclip from Buckethead that uses art from Bosch, I guess it was Galaxigrrl who posted that somewhere in the general discussion forum.

Black Sabbath - Greatest Hits (Best of/Compilation, NEMS 1977)


Seeing that cover brings back funny memories...it reminds me of a friend of mine who stole that particular cassette from a mall record store- while tripping on acid (we all were, there were 6 of us who went, all crammed in a Ford Taurus..)- AND he had a large bag of weed on him, for some stupid reason...anyway, when he told me later what he'd done, I asked him why the hell he risked shoplifting something, especially under those circumstances...especially when he already had all those Sabbath songs already! But he was like, "oh no, no, see I don't have those songs in this particular ORDER". And he was dead serious. ! Really, all I could do was crack up. That's a Sabbath fan for ya! Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

But regarding the thread- of course I can't say with any remote certainty, but I'd like to think that the album cover for ITP was chosen simply based on an admiration for Bosch's work alone, and that that portion of that particular piece was a good fit for the album. Tho of course there are definite similarities between the work of Bosch and Brueghel. I love both artists, but I've always been far more captivated by Bosch. And as for other albums who've used Bosch- there may be many, but one I recall is by a hardcore Boston band called DYS.

And yes, Elohim, it was me who posted that Buckethead/Bosch vid- it's wicked- if any of you haven't seen it but would like to, go to youtube and type in Buckethead bosch and it should pop up. And ya know, I'd imagine Bosch himself would probably appreciate his work being shown in that way- he definitely had a sense of (peculiar) humor if you look closely at pretty much any of his paintings! That's about all I can say about him with confidence, tho- there is very, very little known about the guy, and I know that because I struggled to write a paper on him in college...

Thanks for posting this, Baphomet -- for some reason I had conflated the two paintings in my head. I had always assumed that the Sabbath cover had come from a different portion of the painting.

I can see how the Sabbath record may have served as an inspiration to check out more northern Renaissance art -- it certainly piqued my interest.

Another question, though (and this really just occurred to me, so call me late to the party), is -- did this painting by Bruegel, the Triumph of Death, serve as the inspiration for the title of the Hellhammer demo?

I don't think El Greco would fit to a CF or Triptykon cover.

His series of Revelations would actually. It's a very weird kind of style when you compare it to his contemporaries. El Greco painted in a way that would come into fashion in the beginning of the 20th century with Die Brücke. It might have been that Kirchner was inspired by El Greco, but a lot of his more 'gothic'-type paintings were very 'Grecoïsch' in nature.
