These Simpsons-themed album covers will cure your quarantine blues

A global quarantine has left us getting desperately creative in order to keep ourselves sane. And while we’ve seen more wonderfully inventive artworks, memes, and videos than you could possibly imagine, these Simpsons-themed album re-imaginings might just have taken the cake.

Two artists have fused their favourite things together; The Simpsons and metal music, and the results are amazing.

Two artists have created Simpsons-themed album cover re-imaginings for metal and rock bands like Korn, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Marilyn Manson.

Edgar Portela and Lila Rouge have created an Instagram page for their creations. @springfieldalbums fuses iconic characters and images from The Simpsons, with equally iconic album covers from some of the world’s finest bands. Take a look at some of the most impressive recreations below.
