And it’s weird as fuck.
I enjoy the work of Travis Smith. The man has done a lot of incredible work, including Blackwater Park, but I’m not really digging this. The band’s heads in the tree seems just silly, and the devil figure looks an awful lot like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead. I know I can’t be the only one who saw it. Fess up.
Opeth normally has some pretty rad artwork, but I’m just not feeling this one. Hopefully the album itself is of better quality than the cover, which I’m sure it will be. Heritage is due out this September on Roadrunner Records.
