Symphony X Reveals New Album Artwork

American progressive metal outfit Symphony X has revealed the front cover artwork for the band's forthcoming new studio album, "Iconoclast." You can check it out below. The album will be released through Nuclear Blast Records on June 17th in Europe and June 21st in North America and will be the band's ninth studio album.

Illustrator and film concept artist Warren Flanagan (Watchmen, The Incredible Hulk, 2012) is the talent behind the album artwork. Here, he shares his creative process on the new album’s artwork:

"The idea was to create imagery that was a little darker in tone to previous Symphony X albums and to represent the overall theme of Iconoclast into the artwork. The whole concept came from Mike [Romeo], who had a strong idea of what the cover should represent based off the music. I just ran with it. When the album’s title was decided on, I focused the image based on the meaning of it. I also wanted to use the band’s signature 'masks' but present them in a way that connected to the new album."
