Our friends over at Loudwire enjoy a nearly inexhaustible supply of disturbing album covers. After all, heavy metal bands have a long history of pushing the boundaries of creepiness with their covers. But alternative and indie bands don't tend to use artwork with quite so much blatant carnage or depictions of Rammstein.

But that's not to say that artists further from the metal edge of the musical fence aren't capable of working up some seriously disturbing album covers. In fact, in many cases, alternative and indie sleeves can be even more disturbing because the cover artists shoot for the brain rather than the gut. Nothing is spookier than the stories we concoct in our nasty little noggins, after all. Enjoy our collection of 31 of the most disturbing album covers from non-heavy metal bands, and good luck sleeping tonight.
