Reminds me very much of their debut's cover.
kaspair - 27.06.2012 at 21:32  
Wow, I love it.
Windir - 27.06.2012 at 21:40  
Like in every Ensiferum release, we have water, the same old guy and the same suomi shield, but this time there is an aurora borealis ha ha... Musically, the awesomeness is absolutely guaranteed!
Promonex - 27.06.2012 at 21:41  
Pink, the new black?
Windrider - 27.06.2012 at 21:43  
Awesome as always!!

Love the red tone! I have the last two covers as flags hanging on my wall and this is going to go there as well.
J:oKeR - 27.06.2012 at 21:50  
Nice....:)

Their best cover yet, even if it is similar to the first.
pojechany - 27.06.2012 at 22:13  
Isn't it exactly the same color as chaos flames form Warhammer?
JÄY - 27.06.2012 at 22:19  
Love Wåhlin's work... I swear every other metal band on earth has had a cover done by him.

I don't like it, it looks like a catholic propaganda poster

So the presence of an old bearded man makes it a catholic propaganda poster?

I really see nothing religious on it...
BoxCar Willy - 27.06.2012 at 23:08  
I love all of their artwork.
ndawkn - 27.06.2012 at 23:09  
Well that's very.. Ensiferum-ish. Väinämöinen and other references to Kalevala and a Finnish flag. The colour theme is a bit weird though.
Gopherhawk - 27.06.2012 at 23:09  
Love the surprise.

Don't really care about covers. Wanting to hear the first song before I'm bothered.
~Starchild~ - 28.06.2012 at 00:59  
Absolutely mazing album cover, I love the colour!
But I guess this will be the best part of the album :-/
Nemmeth - 28.06.2012 at 01:20  
You can clearly see the artist improve when you compare Ensiferum's oldest covers to the newest. Cool.
I think I like this cover the best too. For some reason red seems a bit out of place yet makes the cover awesome? whatever :p
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 28.06.2012 at 01:27  
Yes! YES! YES! YES!



I had a feeling it would be red - It's the same as the self-titled album cover with the landscape and all, but acts as a sequel!
BlueMobius - 28.06.2012 at 01:37  
That color scheme is gorgeous. Hope the music is too.
Josh Gottret - 28.06.2012 at 02:15  
The same shield...and the same guy...always!
Hahahahahaha!!!
We can expect a really awesome disc, at least after the release of "FROM AFAR".
FeskarN - 28.06.2012 at 12:23  
Love the artwork. Wåhlin's work is always fantastic. The colours are amazing and it looks kinda similair to the first album. can't wait to hear the music now.
malaikat - 28.06.2012 at 13:15

WTF? "Catholic propaganda poster"?? WHY?
qlacs - 28.06.2012 at 17:19  
I love Iron's and From Afar's cover, but this one is seems to be a bit better, although it reminds me more of computer-painted stuff...
Cal Wolvington - 28.06.2012 at 17:20  
It's fucking purple.
EmeraldSword - 28.06.2012 at 17:37  
I like the album artwork and use of red. I interpreted the "pink" tone purely as mist coming off the water. Here's to hopefully a good album too!
Troy Killjoy - 28.06.2012 at 17:39  
The red probably symbolizes the blood of the unsung heroes that have been slain in battle.
TG_LAX - 28.06.2012 at 18:02  
Damn the artwork is just to awesome:)

Thought the same thing myself.

I like the artwork and don't mind the color scheme at all.

First time he isn't holding his sword. Or at least like, leaning on it.

actually I think the red symbolizes the anger of the unsung heroes and their undying yearning for redemption at the battlefield

Well, they always have the same cover pattern, but at least that guy isn't skiing like Korpiklaani's lol
