Hope it will have the same high level as the previous one. The artwork is kind of weird, don't like it.

That cover art looks awful. Not a good first impression. Oh well, it's the music that matters in the end...
Spanishkiller - 19.12.2011 at 14:28  
Some awful-looking artworks such as The Black Waltz by Kalmah resulted in great albums

A lot of metal artwork looks like this now (e.g. Cradle of Filth - Darkly Darkly Venus Aversa, Draconian - A Rose for the Apocalypse, Moonspell - Night Eternal, etc). What gives?
MELANCOHOLIC - 19.12.2011 at 17:19  
Cover art is meh meh meh. Epica... and song #1 "Karma"...so if in next albums there's a reference to a black halo or a fourth legacy, i'll start calling them as "Epimelot".
ChristianBrubakkenVo - 19.12.2011 at 17:33  
Anyone else that gets a Poetry for the Poisoned feeling about the cover art?
Iron Nostarion - 19.12.2011 at 17:49  
Ello, Arch Enemy of symphonic metal. I don't know a lot about Kamelot (I've noticed they copy them a lot though) and but with all those lyrics it's like a softened version of Arch Enemy repeating and repeating themselves when "Anthems Of Rebellion" had success.

Yep, exactly that had been my first impression as well.

Hahaha, you're right! In a kidding sort of way of course

The cover art doesn't look bad, but these machine themed covers are starting to annoy. I hope the music is at least at the same level of quality that 'Design Your Universe' was.
farfaramir - 19.12.2011 at 20:56  
This year the metalstorm awards should include the category "Worst Cover Art"...
Truemetaljope - 19.12.2011 at 23:10  
Design Your Universe was kinda disappoint for me. Agreeing on worst cover too . Maybe they can make more memorable songs this time.
Angel_Lament - 20.12.2011 at 02:28  
Promising tracklist, Not so good cover art, LOL on "Monopoly On Truth"...!!

Within Temptation were the clear winners back in January. And Arch Enemy could get one for worst title.
strade - 20.12.2011 at 05:11  
This has to be one of the worst album titles ever. And album covers.
Void Eater - 20.12.2011 at 07:26  
Hair is too mainstream.
demonsarising - 20.12.2011 at 07:35  
Huh, the title track isn't the last track, they've broken that particular vein, it seems. I'm getting excited.

Lol somehow it reminds me of latest Symphony X's abum along side with Poetry for the Poisoned from Kamelot.

I find the album cover looks pretty cool, there is a lot going on.

No nipple or hair could symbolize a loss of differing gender.
Andresopeth - 21.12.2011 at 03:21  
What a weird cover art, if you erase the name of the band on it i guess could be impossible to say that's Epica.

Looks like a female version of Neo when was released from the Machine World in The Matrix

I see a nipple, its on her forehead. These artists are getting sloppy.

What does the title have to do with this artwork ??!!
ErnilEnNaur - 21.12.2011 at 15:47  
The artwork is quite hideous. The song titles are pure crap.

i think its goin with the general theme of how modern society(on the left) is destroying the world(nature in top rite corner). but we still have the power to save ourselves and the world.(represented by woman escaping machines and unlocking nature w/key) which is what pretty much wat they said the album is gonna about.
MarioVillalobos - 25.12.2011 at 21:16  
Is very different lol, well is not the worst cover in the year,is just different style.... i hope that the songs kicks ass
ChillxLife - 29.12.2011 at 20:17  
The cover art is, meh. But, hopefully the album is still great. :3
SymphAlchemist - 15.01.2012 at 21:43  
Futuristic art work... after recalling to modern age (TPA), ancient age (CTO and DC) and contemporary age (DYU).. I like it XD
bloodysystem - 29.01.2012 at 00:59  
If it is anything like "Design Your Universe" it is on my list
