Morbid Angel revealed the cover artwork of their newest opus Illud Divinum Insanus :



It was designed by Gustavo Sazes, who commented on it:

"To create this cover we worked from several references, ideas, elements, and I would say a ''world'' of options and paths. After a long brainstorming period and some [good and bad] ideas left behind we came up with the concept of this organic surreal insane being; a fallen God or a weird mirror image of our own madness. It is a different Morbid Angel cover for sure, but I think that's how Morbid Angel is...Deviant and different on each new release. They never repeat themselves. They are always pushing the boundaries and setting new standards. I'm really proud of the final results and hope the fans appreciate my work, while listening to the new album!"

Also was revealed the cover artwork of their single Nevermore, designed by French artists Valnoir and Fursy Teyssier for Metastazis:

I think the artwork for nevermore is probably better than the artwork for the actual album.... Still though i hope the new stuff is worth the wait.
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 30.03.2011 at 20:55  
I like it. I can't work it out.
BudDa - 30.03.2011 at 21:00  
Soo good that the news had to be posted twice?
Marcel Hubregtse - 30.03.2011 at 21:06  
Terrible album cover art.
The artwork for the single is infinitely superior.
BitterCOld - 30.03.2011 at 21:07  
I dig the artwork. am looking forward to the album.
Enemy of Reality - 30.03.2011 at 21:17  
I like both. The single is a bit different from everything before but ina good way. The album cover is more "conventional", but looks great also.
Kenos - 30.03.2011 at 21:24  
Fursy Teyssier = Wonderful artwork. Guaranteed.
BreadGod - 30.03.2011 at 21:40  
I just wish they got Dan Seagrave to do the artwork.

Single artwork >>>>>> album artwork

The album artwork isn't really bad... but it dissapoints me. Specially since the single's artwork is very good imo.
!J.O.O.E.! - 30.03.2011 at 21:52  
I agree with everyone. That single artwork is sexeh. Album is ok.
Marcel Hubregtse - 30.03.2011 at 22:04  
The album artwork is way too Behemothish

Exactly what I thought when I saw the artwork.

@ BuDa yeah it was a little mistake...

About the cover i dont particullary like it but it's not a bad thing, the single could be more elaborated

Well I prefer the album art to the single's...

As silly as this sounds i dont like the cover because it looks too "Modern" if you know what i mean... it just doesnt suit an old school band like MA. I was expecting something along the lines of Formulas.

indeed way too modern and also sterile.plus it's all cluttered. Too much stuff put on it.
agalloch19 - 30.03.2011 at 23:11  
I love it! =D
Winterthrone - 30.03.2011 at 23:49  
I 'm not sure about the album artwork. Marcel is right, the guys mask is clearly a copy of Nergal's mask... But the single cover art is awesome. Different from everything they did in the past and well thought... Anyway, I'm really looking forward to hear this new sound...

i think it is way too Covenant-ish (colour-wise)...!
jupitreas - 30.03.2011 at 23:59  
I think the album artwork is way better than the single, which looks like a low quality comic book still.
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 31.03.2011 at 00:24  
The single keeps making me think of Mastodon.

Oh yes, hes name had rung a bell. I've been checking out all the names mentioned on this and now I remember Seagrave again. Everyone here on MetalStorm need to see the work of John Martin, 19 Century Romanticist painter. Truly epic stuff.
Abattoir - 31.03.2011 at 00:53  
I don't see anything wrong with either of artworks, though I prefer the album one.

However, I'm quite curious about this release...

Yes, I agree with you - both are well designed covers.
LeChron James - 31.03.2011 at 02:27  
I think the album art woulda been better without the sidebar. but whatever, the single art looks like the CNK's L'Hymne A La Joie cover. sorta.
SlaytanicGonzo - 31.03.2011 at 05:50  
Pretty bad cover. But what's inside is what counts. I hope it's in the same style of Covenant.

U completely read my mind, mate !!! Yes, the first thing that came to mind was "DemiGod" after seeing that.
Destructo - 31.03.2011 at 07:11  
Overall, I do like the album cover. It's got that "shiny" feel to it.
K†ulu - 31.03.2011 at 09:56  
Can't imagine how stoked the fans must be. Even I am curious... As far as the cover, I would like to see it in higher resolution.

Looks like the Demigod...
Jon - 31.03.2011 at 14:11  
I agree with and reiterate the prevailing opinion that the album cover art, while nice 'n' all, with its modern-mystical sheen, the single art would look a lot better on a T-shirt. Maybe an all-over style one.

The music is what's really important...particularly as this will be coming in time for them to raid Singapore in May!
SatanSon - 31.03.2011 at 17:47  
Insane, dark, evil, sick, this album must be super ANTICHRIST. Can't wait. Yehaaaa:banger::banger::bow:

The single's artwork reminds me of Evangelion.

I have seen someone say that on another board as well. But I disagree here. Yes there are three people on it with one standing out in the middle but that's about it. Okay colours are quite similar as well. But stylistically totally different dawings from different periods of time.
