Metal Art Gallery: White Wizzard - Flying Tigers
The work of UK artist Matt Dixon has graced a number of popular franchises within the video gaming world, from Harry Potter to World of Warcraft. His freelance illustrations, however, are quite remarkable and many would be perfect for heavy metal album covers. Los Angeles traditional metallers White Wizzard obviously think so too, having chosen Dixon to provide the cover for their latest release Flying Tigers. Heavy metal and weapons of war have always gone hand in hand, for apparent reasons, thus this simple representation of the album's namesake - albeit with a slight Iron Maiden touch that reinforces the band's old-school image.
