Wow. That is one hell of an artwork package.

Artist Mark Riddick is no stranger to black and white depictions of abominations and monstrosities, you can view his NSFW gallery here (including my personal favourite) to see that for yourself, but this artwork for the upcoming Arsis record Unwelcome looks something special. It’s an intricately detailed atrocity that’s as repulsive as it is intriguing, more suited to some basement black thrashers than the tech-y death onslaught of Arsis, but maybe it marks a shift in the sound of the band, towards something a little looser. Tangential assumptions aside, Unwelcome will be released autumn of this year through Nuclear Blast and, judging on looks alone, you’d best keep an eye out for it.
