Slayer's album cover confirmed2006-06-17 by Kit Brown | 16 Comments
|The "final" cover artwork for SLAYER's new album, "Christ Illusion" complete with the band's logo and album title. Larry Carroll, who did the cover artwork for SLAYER's "Reign in Blood", "South of Heaven", and "Seasons In the Abyss" album, painted this original piece for the "Christ Illusion" cover. Working only from the song titles and early lyrics, Carroll has produced a classic SLAYER masterpiece a portrait of the Christ whose forearms have been chopped off, standing in an ocean of blood surrounded by floating, decapitated heads. |
Carroll created the painting on a 4-by-4-foot slab of wood using a combination of mediums. SLAYER guitarist Kerry King already has placed dibs on ownership of the original wooden canvas.
"Christ Illusion" is SLAYER's first new studio album since 2001, and the first recorded by the band's original line-up King; Tom Araya (bass, vocals); Jeff Hanneman (guitars); Dave Lombardo (drums) since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss". "Christ Illusion" was produced by Josh Abraham and executive produced by Rick Rubin.
"Christ Illusion" is scheduled for release on August 8, 2006 via American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records.

Geez. Some cover art :amaze:
The link doesn't work for me.
Fix it, "Mod."
It worked for a while, but now it doesn't seem to work anymore.
I've found a smaller picture for now because all of the bigger ones aren't working. I hope it suffices.
Nice and brutal I see.
I dont like the coverart at all
