Black Metal Albums Get Turned Into Faux Children's Books

Based out of the Czech Republic, the late Helena Zmatlikova was a well-known illustrator of children's books, her work printed on the covers of books published all over the world.  I'm not sure she'd be too happy about it, but another artist has just taken her innocent drawings and put a sinister spin on them, turning the art into covers for faux children's books named after popular Black/Death Metal album titles, from bands like Cannibal Corpse and Satyricon.  Hopefully Ms. Zmatlikova's got a good sense of humor, because the mash-up is a pretty awesome one!

The mock-ups were created by a member of the metal band Umbrtka, who also writes for Czech Maxim, and you can see a collection of his handiwork below.  You've never been read a children's book like these ones before, of that I can be pretty sure of!
