LANDMINE MARATHON’S SOVEREIGN DESCENT COVER ART IS BOSS
The cover of Landmine Marathon’s last album, Rusted Eyes Awake, looked kind of like an old EC Comic. It was definitely all-caps FUCKING METAL, and the non-polished quality of it matched the music perfectly.
The band has gone in a new direction for the cover of the new record, Sovereign Descent, hiring the legendary Dan Seagrave, and while it’s definitely still all-caps FUCKING METAL, the style and atmosphere are completely different. And not “bad” different – just different.
Does the tonal difference from the last cover foretell of a tonal difference in the music, too? I guess we’ll find out when Prosthetic releases the album on March 16.
