Horrible cover. Egypt mixed with deathcore logo. There's nothin' better than it.
Daniell - 23.08.2012 at 13:19  
Deathcore logo... Cradle of Filth's logo was created about 20 years ago. Deathcore didn't exist back then. Please get your facts straight next time
I don't like the cover either by the way.

Could have bet the house on boobs making an appearance. Good job. Wait... good job? Not so sure on that one

With deathcore you probably meant the font of the album title?

Better than Nile's latest cover.

I think your namesake from Poland means the album title's font That is quite deathcorish indeed.

But what a horrible cover once again by them

They always had terrible cover arts... This is not an exception.
Mr. Doctor - 23.08.2012 at 15:12  
They never fail when it comes to bring some awful awful artwork.

Cruelty And The Beast is the only okayish-good cover everything else is just bullshit.

What do you expect from a crappy band anyway
Slyfang - 23.08.2012 at 16:26  
So basically.. the title has Manticore, which is a beast from Greek mythology and looks nothing like the weird estimation of the Succubus we got, from Hebrew mythology. And to top it off, an Egyptian themed background.

This cover is physically painful to watch...

Im hoping that the Special Edition comes with an alternative cover I like this over Darkly Darkly
Array - 23.08.2012 at 18:29  
Yes they haven't really done interesting covers ever since Live Bait For The Dead was released, but the music is what matters. Strangely and somehow, I've learnt to enjoy these 'quite crappy' covers as well.

you actually want to say you prefer Cradle's shitfest artwork over Slayer's? Okay Slayer has some dodgy artwork but some great ones too such as Hell Awaits, Reing IN Blood, SOuth Of Heaven, Seasons In The AByss.

Hahahahahaha... I can't believe you're serious. No wait... I actually can.
There's some well done photoshop artwork out there indeed like Pyramids' s/t.



But how could someone with a straight face say he/she takes badly... BADLY executed photoshop work like this:


Over a good drawning which actually takes some good amount of skills:



Mind...not that much blown.

Mr. Doctor : Because that painting may take skill, but if i simply dont like the result, it isnt a valid argument...same as i dont like H.R.Giger's pic used on Celtic Frost's album...its a matter of personal taste, like it or not

Nothing "deathcore" about it.. You can actually read it yaknow? The entire point of deathcore logos is to be illegible.

I take Midian cover over Hell Awaits any day, any hour. 'How it was made' is irrelevant.

But you got to love Ayreon, they're so talented

I didn't claim it was better because of the style... Just an extra comment. But no, it's better to translate it into another thing.

It's the execution... it's terrible. Specially compared to good photoshop. The girl is basically GLUED on the image like something you could do with paint.
!J.O.O.E.! - 23.08.2012 at 22:03  
Hell Awaits is a nice artwork that has its own definable style, whereas the CoF one... I mean really, look at the fucking scorpion man: his body's on BACK-TO-FUCKING-FRONT: the head and body should be facing behind him. The legs of the scorpion are showing the top part of the body, its front would be facing the floor. Yet we have the badly shooped man-part on with the front facing away from the back. It's like having your arms on back to front, with the joints making them bend behind you.

The look on the models face is the part I hate the most. Something about her trying too hard to look "mean", and all it does is make me want to punch her in the face. Their older covers might have been pretty crappy, but this is just awful.

Will you guys stop calling the background Egyptian? These are sphynxes from Greek mythology (see "Oedipe et le Sphinx" by painter Ingres), with corinthian columns, typical hellenistic architecture...

Well forgive us for not all being professors in ancient cultures. It's a common mistake, and rarely, if ever talked about. I know Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt influenced eachother a great deal, but we were never taught what exactly came from where.

OHNOES! BACK 2 FRONT?!?!? And the fact that the album is about lovecraftian fiction, cthulu,, fantasy, and the like makes no diffrerence. In other words, he is a disfigured monster...Fail troll is fail, 2/10.

Aww poor wittle baby-waby, I see you have CoF as both your favourite band and your avatar.

Butt-hurt level = over 9000.

Only if you come to accept that your favourite band has a retarded monster on the front cover, probably haphazardly put together by someone with 7 fingers and a meatball for a brain Seriously, it's a God-awful cover.

I was aware from the get go that it had a retarded monster, but done purposefully. Honestly, who makes a mistake like that on purpose?

It is an awful cover, I agree. But the scorpion man was a nice touch in my opinion.
