25. Helloween's Better Than Raw (1998)
This haunted house wouldn't be complete without an alluring and sexy witch to distract you, but you likely won't be happy with your final fate. Unfortunately, Helloween's Better Than Raw album cover (above) is more memorable than the music contained, as this album is not one of the European power-metal outfit's better efforts.


24. Pentagram's Last Rites (2011)
Pentagram leader Bobby Liebling has been through hell and back since he first concocted his brand of doom-rock in the early 1970s. The album cover is a reminder that death will be waiting for you in the end, ready to log you into his guestbook.


23. Unsane's Wreck (2012)
