Swedish heavy doom metallers Grand Magus have unveiled the artwork for their new album titled The Hunt, set for release on May 25th in Europe and June 5th in North America via Nuclear Blast. The artwork was created by Arik Roper (Cathedral, High On Fire, Sleep), who also did the cover artwork for the band's album Iron Will.

Janne "JB" Christoffersson commented: "Arik Roper is a super-talented artist and we've had the pleasure of working with him before when he did the cover art for our album Iron Will. This time around with the overall feel and lyrical themes of our new album The Hunt, Arik was the perfect choice once again. We basically just gave him the title and he created one of the most haunting and suggestive images ever seen. He totally nailed what the album is all about. To say we are pleased is a gigantic understatement! This piece of art will stand the test of time and become classic."

New Accept and new Grand Magus, just like in 2010. 2012 is gonna be a good year for heavy metal.

Image is awesome, I just wish the text was a little more integrated. It looks too clear on the foggy background...

I love the cover art. I'm really excited for this album. Hammer of the North was one of my favorite albums in 2010.
