Morbid Angel Reveals New Album, "Illud Divinum Insanus" Artwork

American death metal legends Morbid Angel has revealed the front cover artwork for their forthcoming new studio album, "Illud Divinum Insanus." You can check it out below. The album will be the band's first record since 2003 and will be released through Season of Mist Records on June 7th in North America, with an international release date of June 6th.

Speaking on the artwork, designer Gustavo Sazes stated: "To create this cover we worked from several references, ideas, elements, and I would say a 'world' of options and paths. After a long brainstorming period and some [good and bad] ideas left behind we came up with the concept of this organic surreal insane being; a fallen God or a weird mirror image of our own madness. It is a different Morbid Angel cover for sure, but I think that's how Morbid Angel is... Deviant and different on each new release. They never repeat themselves. They are always pushing the boundaries and setting new standards. I'm really proud of the final results and hope the fans appreciate my work, while listening to the new album!"
