You don't have to be mad to listen to this, but it helps

Over at Mind Hacks, Vaughan has a very entertaining post on the mental health associations of heavy metal album covers.

Now, I'm not a big fan of this: It tends to trivialise some quite serious suffering and confuse the issue. But, then again, I'm not a big fan of heavy metal either.

What does really depress me (not-pun intended) is that there are some extremely cool album covers there, but the music will undeniably be shit. I used to have a
Cradle of Filth album cover as a desktop background, but got rid of it when I actually listened to some of their stuff. I couldn't look at it the same way again.

But, then there's Fields of The Nephillim to make up for it.
