||Spanish thrash metallers Angelus Apatrida have unveiled the artwork from their new studio album entitled The Call, which will be released on April 30th in Europe via Century Media Records.
The band's new album was finished with the same creative team as their previous release, Clockwork: it was again recorded in Moita, Portugal, at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema) and the artwork was handled by Gustavo Sazes from Abstrata (Arch Enemy, Krisiun).
The band commented on the artwork: "The cover presents the character of the creature that's gonna start the Armageddon. We wanted the beast to look majestic and powerful and we definitely think that Gustavo achieved that. We believe the cover fully represents the spirit of what you are going to listen... and you better be prepared, cause is coming to get you!"
