French black metal act Otargos has revealed the cover artwork for the upcoming album "No God No Satan," which can be viewed here. The band also commented on the artwork:
"Once again, we entrusted the work of XxX aka 3-Crosses to design the new cover and layout of our upcoming album. Spawned from his dark mind, the whole visual concept aims at expressing the pathetic impotence of mankind, drowned into its false beliefs, similar to the pathologic secret of the essence of flesh. In collaboration with the Dupuytren museum, all original photographs are the mirror of our ignorance and weakness facing the genesis of Life - which derives certainly not from a divine intervention.
"Delivering a more personal work than on 'Fuck God-Disease Process,' XxX honours Otargos' new musical masterpiece with an elaborated crimson tortured graphic design. 3-Crosses Design has worked for many bands such as Enthroned, Impiety, Destinity, WHiplash, The Few Against Many, Guillotine and many others."
