Dude, what can I say…it’s a slow news day.
Austrian blackened death metal metal outfit Belphegor have commissioned Greek artist Anthon Siro Seth to create the artwork for the band’s forthcoming album.
Seth has already started working on the cover art and has come up with some magical images.
Says Seth in a statement: “It will be a great challenge creating the artwork for Belphegor’s new masterpiece. My mission is clear: creating the most disturbing artwork I have ever made!”
At least until the next LP he’s commissioned to conceive art for.
Says frontman Helmuth: “It’s good to have Seth recruited again. He did the Pestapokalypse VI graphics back in 2006.
“The lyrical content deals with blasphemy, exorcism, and blackest romantic. He’s the perfect choice for the atmosphere we are looking for.”
The band’s new album is tentatively due in August 2013 through Nuclear Blast Records.
But I wouldn’t count on that shit happening. This band’s always late with their records.
