The guitar wielding goblinoids in A Band of Orcs recently revealed the cover artwork for an upcoming new self-titled album, and now they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for releasing a double vinyl picture disc edition. Check out the details on the fundraiser at this location, and the band commented:

It's bold. It's stupid. It doesn't make sense, and that's why we're doing it. We have always been entranced by the mythical visionscapes on LP's and picture discs of the heavy metal greats like Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Slayer. So that's what we're doing. CDs are too small for the epicness of A Band of Orcs debut concept album about slaying giants in the home realm of Hirntodia...

The very best way to present our album is in a double vinyl picture disc set, complete with a 12-page art & lyrics booklet. To hell with what makes sense in today's digital music environment! Not like your human world makes any sense anyway. We believe in the traditional values of metal--great visual art, spectacular music from start to finish, and well, general epicness. What's more epic than a double vinyl picture disc set?!?!?

If you don’t have a record player, don’t worry, all the sets will come with a download code for the digital version of the album. You can keep this picture-disc artifact as a relic of bygone times, or you can simply pledge your support for a digital copy and forego the record set altogether. Either way, you contribute to raising the money necessary to help us pay the production costs of this ancient metal practice of actually making "a record."
