That cover is absolutely hideous
Kalmari - 17.11.2012 at 17:07  
One of the ugliest artworks I've ever seen

Living up to the album title, This cover is absolutely terrible.
Reign - 17.11.2012 at 17:12  
I don't care much for the cover art, as long as the music is awesome can't wait to get this album
Ag Fox - 17.11.2012 at 17:19  
The art does matter, because I would be much less inclined to purchase a physical copy. Better Than Raw is the best among the discography
Dinruth - 17.11.2012 at 17:26  
Wow .. that is just disgraceful .. what a piece of shit
BlueMobius - 17.11.2012 at 17:27  
Lame. When will people start seeing that this digital art is not the way to go?
Nemo Atkins - 17.11.2012 at 17:30  
The cover art's not that bad, but, if it weren't for the pumpkins and the name on it, you'd think it was a cover for a Sabaton album.

Reminds me of that Halloween episode of the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

Terrible cover,hope album will be better.I kinda miss good old helloween.
Andreas - 17.11.2012 at 18:30  
Good cover, the best in 15 years.
Gopherhawk - 17.11.2012 at 18:34  
Its not bad but it looks way too digital.
Sangre Sani - 17.11.2012 at 19:12  
Horrible. It kinda looks like Megadeth's stuff.
Should I call 'em now Hellodeth or Megaween?
DrunkenFuck - 17.11.2012 at 19:39  
Holy crap that's horrible.

The moment when you think a cover is awful and you quickly read the comments to see people agree with you !

Horrible !!!!!!!!!!!!

It's true if it didn't look so plastic it probably wouldn't be so bad.
mandrake88 - 17.11.2012 at 23:16  
I've a slight feeling this album won't be as good as the previous ones

I've had same feeling but then i hear some of the new songs..imo they are great so i think that album will be also!
And production is better imo but that is just me
John Sandman - 18.11.2012 at 05:07  
I hate this 3D like artwork. =\
R'Vannith - 18.11.2012 at 08:37  
They've had some shockingly terrible cover art in the past.. this isn't the worst one but it's pretty damn ugly.
Fat & Sassy! - 18.11.2012 at 08:43  
Um, yeah, ReBoot.
Machiavelli - 18.11.2012 at 10:47  
I'm not into the band but will say that if they think that cover is worthy of wrapping their music than I don't want to hear this new stuff. WTF is with the hand grenade oil lamp in the bottom left. Please don't hesitate to add to my initial critique.
Wraith000 - 18.11.2012 at 11:10  
Pretty bad ass album cover !
Sznc - 18.11.2012 at 11:53  
Helloween and their dose of Meatloaf
JohnDoe - 18.11.2012 at 13:05  
The cover art looks bad, hope the music will be ok
Scuzzy McDouche - 18.11.2012 at 18:53  
Yeah, as one of the biggest Helloween fans in existence, I have to say this is quite bad...even though I have always loved the pumpkins.

However, I believe the music on this album is going to blow all Helloween fans out there the fuck away.

What's Jack Skellington doing in the this cover on the bottom right?

DOGSHIT. A 5-year old blind child with arthritis could have drawn better.
Iamawalker - 19.11.2012 at 05:30  
I like the title, which fits in some way with the band's name and also their humour, and I like the concept of the cover-artwork too. A twisted war-zone does indeed seem like something straight out of hell.
But is it just me, or is there way too much yellow and green colour in it? Other than this, I don't think it's that bad.

I agree! "Burning Sun" and "Another Shot Of Life" were both killer songs and had some of the best sound productions from these guys yet. It really seems like we're gonna have another winner on our hands.

Haha! I'm glad I wasn't the only one to spot that. Though I hope for Helloween's sake that nobody from Disney spots it!

The only good thing I can say about the cover is it isn't the worst one in Helloween's discography. It is probably the best digital artwork that's been on a Helloween album to date, but seeing as the others were terrible, that isn't saying very much! Still, the artwork for Gambling With The Devil was even worse than this one, and that was a great album, so I'm still looking forward to the album lots.
Identitarian - 19.11.2012 at 17:19  
Like a couple of other guys hinted, they must have stolen this idea from Tim Burton. It´s not the best looking album cover of all times, but I´m sure it´s going to be a great record.

Yea sound is great,better then on 7 Sinners and Gambling
Nabataea is my favorite for now but i agree that Burning Sun and ASOL are great too and cant wait to hear entire album!
Too bad that cover isnt what i expected to be,but i guess we cant have it all!:)

Hehe, yeah it's weird how their album covers are always sub-par compared to the amazing music.
Don't think I've heard "Nabataea", I must find it immediately!

Never really bothered about covers, but....my eyes, my eyes are burning.

Bring back dwarfs in big hats and big boobs
caisnore - 21.11.2012 at 20:33  
Yeah the cover is bad, but because i have been listening to the band for a really long time, I can honestly say that i don't give a fuck.
