Order Of The Blackguard Reveals Album Artwork

Black metal act Order of the Blackguard has issued the following update about the cover artwork for an upcoming album:

"Sisters of Doom, Brothers of Gloom. Whilst ATR is finishing up mixing 'The way of cross and dragon' (He humbly assures us its not too far off now) We'd like to take this opportunity to proudly draw your attention to the artwork that shall adorn the albums front cover. Its by the painfully talented artist, Rafael Garrido from Granada, Spain Who has kindly allowed us to use this stunning image which encapsulates the feel and vibe of 'Dragon' in such an uncanny way, it scares me half to death. We are confident the Order has long winding untrodden path snaking off ahead of us and are secretly hoping Rafa will come along for the entire journey. Thanx for your time. Best wishes, as ever, to the underground black metal hordes."
