Japanese metal from 1986. Yeah! Dead End assisted in spearheading the visual kei movement alongside X Japan and Color. If you're not familiar with visual kei, just imagine Poison playing dramatic power/speed metal. Dead End fell on the "horror punk" side of the spectrum. This was their debut, and it's actually kind of catchy. But this feature focuses on artwork. Check out that ghoulish mania! Is that a gargoyle sitting down in the background? I'm legitimately asking. Man, I hope that decomposing confrere finds his other eyeball.
