looks like a shrimp c***tail w/ a small planet at the center of a white flower near the buttom and a random a$$ skull (even tho they ALWAYS have a skull on EVERY single album) near the top w/ that weird red shine in one eye as if it's the head of the terminator, but that should be on an austrian death machine cover.

Is it me, or has the last 3 albums looked about the same? Think it's time for a new art direction.

RTB & nailgun!: i agree w/ the both of u's. while it is true that it does seem that all the album covers have looked the same, always being generally 1 primary color and black, and then a skull in the middle or something, it rlly doesn't matter kuz it's all about the music, and that's what rlly counts.

Funny that you say you bought and loved it, seeing how, you know, it doesn't come out for another month... Unless you figured out how to time travel, in which case I would forgive you for your overuse of exclamation marks.
