Doug Johnson for Judas Priest

Music // Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Back in the 1980s, Doug Johnson did some fantastic artwork for 3 Judas Priest album covers: 1982's "Screaming for Vengeance," 1984's "Defenders of the Faith," and 1986's "Turbo." For some reason, this morning, when we woke up, we just thought about how rad all this art was, and wanted to see if anybody else remembers these. Doug Johnson... dude had metal down.

Toiling over toxic resins, blister packs and poor working conditions, The Sucklord brings us the best of the worst in reimagined popular culture.

As for this, his art pieces are the result of a modus operandi that makes part of the photographic universe and results in a kind of parallel reality, materialized in the universe of painting.
