It's pretty simple, you put Maiden/MEtallica/BFMV on the cover so that people buy it and then you put a feature on Cirith Ungol/Winterfylleth/Angel Witch inside so that they then get exposed to cool bands they otherwise wouldn't have heard of.
Pah, rubbish. I wouldn't even pick it up unless it had Warwulf on the cover.
