Not Quite Metal?

…AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY OUR AWESOME ALBUM ART

260

So …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead is obviously not a metal band, but I just saw the cover art for their latest offering, Tao of the Dead, and it’s pretty fucking cool, and I’d rather discuss this than, say, the umpteenth terrible deathcore band one of you sent us claiming they were “the future of metal” or whatever.

Badass Digest tells me that the cover was done by the band’s own Conrad Keely, who apparently once had aspirations of doing comic book art. I’m not gonna get all Vince/Protest the Hero with it and analyze this thing in great detail, especially since there might be references that a very casual Trail fan like myself wouldn’t even pick up on… so for now, let’s just enjoy its beauty.
