Pain Reveals "You Only Live Twice" Cover Artwork

Swedish industrial metallers Pain have revealed the cover artwork for the bands upcoming album "You Only Live Twice," which can be viewed below.

Commented main man and producer Peter Tägtgren: "I really wanted something 'Nightmare Before Christmas' meets 'Alice In Wonderland' kind of feeling but with our mascot, the painhead in it. And Heile created that after what I wanted. And he did it in his own way. It really has this kinda Tim Burton feel to it. It will be really crazy with a big backdrop. We also gonna do some inflatable stuff with our Painhead. Its gonna be our Eddie, like Iron Maiden has it."

"You Only Live Twice" is set to be released June 3rd, 2011 via Nuclear Blast.
