Give that the cover has been voted one of the worst of all time, it's a surprise that the cover is probably one of the best things about this record. Despite the clear Tolkien reference in the title "Battle At Helms Deep", judging by the lyrics of the song, I have a strong suspicion that they might not actually have read very much of Lord Of The Rings beyond the chapter titles.

The comment on the insert photo in the notes doesn't really do it justice. I would upload an image but the drummer trying to cut his own head off is really the only part of that photo that is safe for work, even if there has been some obvious airbrushing to the original image.
