8. Deeper The Wound
Year released: 2001
Converge frontman Jacob Bannon is fairly well-known for his work in graphic design, having navigated a successful career in that field, in addition to his music. This Converge split with Hellchild was one of the few releases he didn't lay a pen to; noted illustrator Derek Hess took on the project for the cover. And while Hess, too, designed a significant amount of work for bands in the early 2000s, it's the combination of these devastating bands and his notorious sketchy style that lends to something incredibly artful and sinister.
