It’s like the polar opposite of the Dredg artwork. And for good reason. It’s fucking Decapitated.
Is that a dude or a chick with a mask on? Either way, it is nice to see that font back on an album cover.
The Polish technical death metal outfit Decapitated’s fifth and long-awaited studio album, Carnival Is Forever, drops in North America and Poland on July 12 via Nuclear Blast Records.
That creepy-ass androgynous cover art was created by Lukasz Jaszak. Your guess is as good as mine on how to pronounce that dude’s name.
“[The album cover is] very intriguing and quite strange for a metal album but surely staying in memory,” says guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka. “A vital thing is that it’s a photo. We did not want any computer graphics this time or anything artificial or plastic. The same regards the production of the album. We had actually been thinking about getting a painting for the cover but unfortunately we couldn’t do it. Maybe next time.”
