Nah, I love the art. I mean, if you think about it it's just as minimalistic as Salvation or SAtH

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.

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.

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.

Artwork is awesome. Less is more. So many albums nowadays go way over the top with covers.

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.

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.
