Melvyn also did a bunch of Iron Maiden albums

I was at the Masters of Metal Tour in 2008 and saw some guy with The Sword of The Gael tattooed on his back, his entire back !

[METALMANJP] Friday, March 21, 2014 11:55:37 AM

I am going to have to say The Sword of the Gael, it is the cover of a book by Andrew loffutt, artwork by Melvyn Grant , based on a short story/fragment by Robert E Howard( of Conan The Barbarian fame ) and is about Cormac Mac Art a pictish chief, it was my screen saver for years and I have a son Cormac http://www.melgrant.com/sword-fantasy-index.html

Yup, quick Wiki proves that to be true. I was actually looking at the name on the closest bomb. Back of the LP confirms that it said "Melvyn." Of course, this is Melvyn Grant who: 

" ... originally used as the cover for the novel The Steel Tsar) was also used for the US cover of Ballistix for the Turbo Grafx 16 and Commodore Amiga." 

I'll have to stare at Hero, Hero a bit before I try to make an honest stab at it.

Ok, tough to ponder but not google this one. Certainly wasn't on KKs site about the logos as I read that one from top to bottom recently.

War Machine! Bombadier! ???

Huh. There is a good one I can't name off the top of my head. Ummm....bottle cap that should have been used on a Stones album?

Yeah, I know, you said the revamped / second. Hmmmm......sealed version right in front of me. My fav Priest logo (LOVE the gothic script). No name on the outside, though. Only that Melvyn did it in 1981. CHARLIE! <==yeah, wrong but they do give credit to a "Charlie" on the back and hell if I am opening this LP. Curious to know the answer.

Okay, we have the Hellion and the Metallion. What is the creature called on the revamped Rocka Rolla album ?

@headbanger not that the 4 horsemen were in the books but that the book made me interested in finding out what they were
[Head banger] Friday, July 27, 2012 8:04:38 AM 
I thought in the books death had 4 handmaidens and War was a separate incarnation.  darn, just read one of them, will have to get out the pale horse and read it.

Metallica: "on leather steeds they ride" What the fuck is a horse hide supposed to be made of, wool? Bwahaahahaaa!

piers anthony series i think caused me to learn them
[guidogodoy] Thursday, July 26, 2012 11:13:20 PM 
HAAAA! You are reaching. You didn't say that Famine was the missing song nor did you identify the proper icon on the horse.

So...um...how was that not completely wrong? lol

ps. NO SOUP FOR YOU!

So famine was right. Just did not get the right color of the horsey. Not completely wrong.

Acolyte hit them all perfectly. Color of the horses is a dead-giveaway. Famine isn't a song on Nostra but is the third horseman. "Death" is #4 (always has his scythe and rides a pale horse); War has the battlaxe and rides a red horse, FAMINE isn't represented by a song but holds a balance as food was rationed; plus he rides the black horse and the typical iconography is plague on the white horse shooting down victims with an arrow. THAT is the only contested one as the white horse also symbolizes Conquest. Either way, he is covered by a Nostra title.

Famine was the answer. Acolyte nailed it obviously ignoring the "4 Horsemen" by Metallica. "Time" didn't play into the picture at all.

famine, it is war, pestilence and plague and death on the nostradamus album
[Vaillant 3.0] Thursday, July 26, 2012 8:25:40 PM 
Personally, I never really got who or what Horseman #1 was. "Conquest" isn't one of the Four Horsemen as far as I know without cheating, but he has his own song and page in the Nostra book. He also doesn't seem to represent someone suffering from famine, although there's no way to know if he is since he's covered in armor. At least Pestilence looks like he has some sort of sickness/decay and whatnot. Or maybe THAT'S Famine, since he's also extremely thin?
