Cassette Tape Skull

How cool is this pic?

The only albums I can make out are metal ones - Motley Crue: Shout at the Devil and Judas Priest: Screaming for Vengeance. Is this a critique of the seemingly natural association of death with metal? Or a critique of metal's seemingly impoverished bank of subject matter? Is it a celebration of metal's power, so great as to reduce itself to a pile malleable plastic? And what would our response be if the cassettes were melted from other artists/genres? Or a mix thereof? Scandal featuring Patty Smyth with Franco et Rochereau?
