There is "too" much red in it. Look, even their album name isn't cleared.

I think they should have modify in a better way.

Dumb idea for an album title. Dumb idea for an album cover.

I find the album title pretty funny to be honest.

Wow that album cover seems a bit too bright, my eyes can't look at it for too long. Is the album title serious or silly, I hope its silly because I will probably loose a tad of respect for them if its a religious preaching album.

Either way i love AIC whether it is or not. Hope the rest of the new album is as good as the single hollow.

In the AIC web they show this:

I thought the art was kinda weak at first, until I saw this :

There's a second dinosaur in a different shade of red behind the first, and where they overlap forms a devil's head.

Yes, the band released that red cover and then people started discovering other stuff underneath. It's confusing lol

Can't say I'm a fan of the cover but ultimately it's the music that is important. AiC have yet to disappoint me, so I have high expectations.

Don't worry it isn't a preachy album, it is making fun of creationists' theory about how the world is only a few thousand years old. There is proof of dinosaurs so we have to be millions of years old, as far as the world goes. So they are making fun of creationists.

Loved the last album. And I love dinosaurs also, so I really don't care. Maybe if they did a bit more research, they could have found more "devilish" looking dinosaurs such as Carnotaurus, Diabloceratops or Stygimoloch grasp to mind...
