Mmm...bad cover, and nice tracklist, almost sounds like a story of a battle or something...

Lol, same here. Plain cover, intriguing tracklist.

I like the fact that the cover is that simple. probably means that there's more than meets the eye in this album. Anyway I can't wait for it

This is the simplest, although the most epic cover art i have seen in years

There is, in fact, quite a number of even simpler cover arts (this one comes to mind, for instance) but it clearly is the simplest Eluveitie cover yet. More importantly though, they seem to have moved past the pseudo-intellectual pompousness of "Everything Remains As It Never Was"... As it was kind of difficult to buy, it's good news, at least in my book...

Humm. As much as I like things simple, I find this cover too much. Feels like something's missing there.

And it's just me or the tracklists looks too long? 17 songs for an album that probably will not be longer than 50 mins. Maybe it's just my love for long song speaking here. I hope this first impression reveals itself wrong when it listens to the album.

Well, anything is better than the usual covers with proud mighty warriors, dark caves and snowy mountains if you ask me.

drinking, wars, sieges and these kind of goodness was always bestseller in folk metal genre, as this is what its all about.. giving the answer of the life with a hurdy gurdy is quite ridiculous although the musically the album was perfect for me

Pretty sure that many of the 17 tracks are narration stuff and/or small acoustic interlude, in a similar way that Haggard does it.

I love the cover. It will stand out because of its uniqueness. Also the spiral work is a constant theme in their songs.
Looking forward to this album.

I think the cover will probably look better on a digipak, than it will on a jewel case.
Richard 32 - 06.12.2011 at 02:37  
I think the cover's awesome. I'm looking forward to this.

WTF the cover is?Hope the stuffs are excellent.
Swietowit11 - 06.12.2011 at 05:56  
"A Rose for Epona"? Something tells me the hurdy gurdy in that song will be accompanied by an ocarina.

hahah that would be awesome!

they shoulda named it "A Carrot for Epona"

I like the Cover Art to be brutally honest. Its very different from their previous artworks and depicting some classy spiritualism..but wait....tracklisting..OMFG! its totally different for what Artwork is been made.

Agreed, seems to suggest a return to basics. They must have great confidence in the music to use a cover like that.

Looking forward to it.
