Horrible cover. Egypt mixed with deathcore logo. There's nothin' better than it.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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 want Crapfest art work, look at Slayer albums. Oh thats right their considered 'Legends and Untouchable' around here... MY BAD

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.
