Their first album cover represents the Bay Area Thrash Scene of a metalhead in black clothes, black leather jacket and pants and a denim vest and long hair killing metalhead fakers which the lead singer Gio said was put there to symbolize the rivalry and war with the glam metal bands and stereotypical hair metal fans who were posers and did not know what metal was about and could not take a sound that was too metal, but yet called themselves a metalhead.
