Even though you might have seen a lot of these, they still are beautiful paintings.

I've always associated the best of metal with the concept of the mandala or the yantra:







More precisely, perhaps, the geometric sppeal of Islamic art parallels the organic patterns portrayed in quality metal music:

In another thread, someone gave a link to Jos. A. Smith's blog, the guy that made Bathory's first album cover and that will make the art for the next Averse Sefira one. Some pretty interesting stuff, the train ones along with "Shaman's head" are especially striking.

The Inca Trainwall

Interesting, often minimalist, paintings of unusual postures viewed from unusual angles.

Optical art, fractals, et al can be fascinating, but those who seem to be most fascinated by this sort of art tend to be math majors. On the whole, it evokes kaleidoscopes, LSD, and fireworks; conversely, I find profundity in works with more color, vibrancy, and emotional content.

Edit: ARC seems to have a problem with linking to specific images, so here are a few non-ARC scans.

I don't know.  He sounds fairly metal to me.

I love the work of Friedrich.  His work makes me feel serene and is a true breath of fresh air from rather insane world.  I'd love to hear some quality black metal or other neoclassical music that takes inspiration from his art.
