Lord Mantis - New Album Cover Unveiled


We already knew that sludge behemoths Lord Mantis were working on their new album and today you can check out its first details. To begin with, the album will be called Death Mask and drop on April 15th via Profound Lore Records. This means the wait is finally over. You can satisfy your curiosity by checking out the album cover art right here. It's a little graphic.

Still don't know if I like it or not. I guess I like the idea a lot and makes me want to like the result but... I dunno, I think they could have done a better job.

But still... NEW LORD MANTIS MAN! That's awesome enough for me.

Well I suppose Lord Mantis wanted to be shocking, and the only way it was going to be more offensive than the previous album's art was to have a chick with a dick on it. Jef Whitehead certainly has a distinctive style. Can definitely tell it's the same as Massive Conspiracy...

Yeah, I totally saw it was his work just by looking at the use of colour and the texture. He's obviously talented but I think he missed the mark a little bit.
I personally prefer the style of the dude behind the previous album (which name escapes me atm). That guy is fucking awesome but I guess they didn't want another black/grey/white artwork since that's mostly his niche.

He's a tattoo artist apparently, and he designed the cover and inner artwork for Massive Conspiracy himself

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

Christ, that album cover is a bleeding eyesore. Meant to be shocking, its just shockingly bad to me..

Still, good news to hear Lord Mantis are at work again on a new album, enjoyed their last a lot.

Just like most of Leviathan's artwork.
I'm pretty sure Joe is aware of that... His question is more of a surprise exclamation rather than a real question.

"It's a little graphic"

In a world where chicks with dicks is only a little graphic, I'd hate to see very graphic...

I like the colour palette on the art. It's a little slimy and maybe a little grimy.
