JA FÖR FAN!
art is meh
pumped for album
Digging: Zealotry - The Charnel Expanse
Ya art is bad but I'm still stoked for the album
Nah, I love the art. I mean, if you think about it it's just as minimalistic as Salvation or SAtH
I guess I was expecting more cause I love the eternal kingdom art
did they just use the background for the sinister movie poster?
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
Looks like my toilet.
But EK was one of their weaker albums (still awesome, though). Could there be a correlation between art content and musical quality? If so, AOTY 2013.
I was just talking about the art of EK not the album...
I am aware.
i can not wait for this album, and i hope to holy hell these guys play at least one show in NY
i rather like the album art
yea the art's fine, not sure why everyone's ripping it
I actually prefer the more minimal approach, at least with these guys. provides more room for interpretation of the sounds/textures.
Digging: Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
it's not bad, I just didn't feel anything one way or another, looking at it
prob will grow to like it over time
Great news. Pitty that the cover hasn't got any owlmans.
hey, it's better than the hunter. that thing was cool as art but looked really dumb as an album cover. this will probably look great as a digipak.
gonna be kvlt going by the artwork.
Digging: Lake Of Blood - Omnipotens Tyrannus
oh wow that is some radical artwork, not sure I'm a fan
the album will be tits mcgee tho
sweet that album art must've taken them ages to come up with
Guess you can't have every awesome band release something this year. Gotta save some for 2013.
hurr, album art rules
I like it.
Looks like art Sunn O)) would use.
"hurr, album art rules"
aha easy buddy, just pokin fun
album will rule
I love the art, typically minimalistic. Will be AOTY, or definitely up there.
Digging: Childish Gambino - Because The Internet
It looks like something i wiped my ass on
I dig the art. Can't wait for that U.S. tour.
Digging: Current 93 - All the Pretty Little Horses
clearly it's the twin towers, but represented by bloodstained walls as people fell down clutching with their last strength. it's about the loss of free will in corporate America but our refusal to fall without putting up a fight.
Except that the band is from Sweden.
...way to crush my dreams
I think the art really fits with the album being inspired by metropolis.
"I think the art really fits with the album being inspired by metropolis."
I forgot it was makes me like the art more actually now
Artwork is awesome. Less is more. So many albums nowadays go way over the top with covers.
I see it now. Buildings on the top and the shadows of people walking around at the bottom.
Holy Fuck can't wait m/!
Digging: Dismember - Like an Everflowing Stream
Art's good, not amazing, but not bad. I didn't like EK's art.
"I didn't like EK's art."
one of the best album artworks I've ever seen, liked it so much that it's on my back
The art's cool, but I hate the colour palette for it.
but the owl man
So fucking pumped
Art kinda reminds me of skyscrapers so I assume that's what they were going for.
that makes sense. I'm already liking it more, I'm definitely seeing the skyscrapers towards the top, and people on the street or something at the bottom.
Art is cool, what you all saying.
I love some minimalism artsy fartsy
They're last output has been kind of meh, we will just see how good this is.
Digging: Demilich - Nespithe
Their last album was not as good as their first three but it still was pretty damn good. As long as this new album has epic songs like Echoes, Genesis, Vague Illusions, Finland, or Dark City, Dead Man I will be happy.
finally a date, these guys are a buncha dicks for delaying the album so much but i still luv them
Digging: What Mad Universe - A Cosmic Chapter With Gaia
I like the art, it's simple
"They're last output has been kind of meh, we will just see how good this is."
Eternal Kingdom was fucking good the fuck you talking about.
Awesome. Haven't listened to anything from these guys since 'Salvation'.
Digging: Godflesh - Slavestate
Meh output from CoL is better than most bands.
EK was my least favorite CoL album and its still awesome
