@donho LOL!!!! I found one other called "Hurd". But their songs sound like 80's ballads. Like something you'd hear Poison or GNR play. It sounds cool, but without understanding the words, it's just too mediocre for me. At least the songs I've heard so far. There's just something about the heavy metal sound that kind of transcends langauges. Rammstein is a good example of that also.

then I clicked on heilung which is a neat sound also, they play on bones, literaly, and rammstein is fantastic too, ever since the matrix soundtrack got me into them.

What's the lure of these things? They don't seem to be anything that will gain in value over the years. Am I wrong???

This could be true for any variant. Metal covers tend to be extremely limited in print run. It seems they tend to fall in the 10-20 total printed range. So, they're hyper-rare variant covers (unless it's done by Adams, in which case there are likely hundreds of them...and I have his Batman #50 metal, just saying...probably not rare like the others). Do variants gain in value over time? If so, then so should metal and glass covers.

Meh. Okay. I just don't see it. Different media types, not a comic book or original art. I think it is better to be categorized as a print/litho/poster item. Oh well, just not my cup of tea

Certainly is a novelty, and certainly could be worth nothing. Not to mention, long term how do these hold up? Do they oxidize? Is the aluminum treated with something that could outgas to the pages? And, the metal is essentially glued to a front page. Could the glue give out? In the meantime, it's a rare variant.
