After the trick to announce their new album, the Swedish band In Flames has now revealed on their website the cover art of their upcoming album Siren Charms which will be released worldwide in September. Siren Charms will be their 11th studio album and comes three years after the release of Sounds Of A Playground Fading. What do you think about the cover?

Some new music should come next.

It's ok. Kind of nice from an aesthetic point of view, ugly as sin from a subject matter perspective though.

Probably one of their best covers, although that isn't saying much.

I meant that the design style is nice, but the actual picture, the warped head thing, is fugly =P

It'll look good on CD cover.

Well, i'm not very optimistic to be honest .. I just hope it be better than their last 2 releases!

Wow! They went back to their previous band logo, that's a shock. Actually interested in hearing this now.

Awesome cover, i don't know what it means but it looks beautiful

Could you really call that a logo? As much as the type face for the last sentence I typed could be a logo for a band called "Could you really call that a logo", if you get what I mean...

As far as my thoughts on the artwork, it looks pretty run of the mill to me. Not very interesting.

I don't think logos require a certain level of complexity to be considered logos. But, I see what you mean. I like this logo much better than the one they used on "A Sense of Purpose" and "Sounds of a Playground Fading".

I think, it depicts a siren, it reminds me of Come Clarity though, probably it's from the same artist.

Well I agree they don't necessarily need complexity. A lot actually suffer from trying to be too complex. I personally think it needs to be a little more unique than a font off microsoft word to form an affiliation with a particular band though, haha. Agreed about the other logo though, always got a crappy teen angst vibe from that one.

Certainly the most beautiful cover for their album, it's simple but effective

I hope someone genuinely hacks their website now. I genuinely can't stand marketing tricks like that.

hahaha, yep, agree with that. Fugly is the word. Might have been nice if the warped head thing was a sexy-looking siren instead.

That would have been my preference too. I suppose though sirens are supposed to be ugly only they fog the minds of sailors into thinking they're hot, or something. Still though, I'd rather have my mind fogged i think.

Is it sad that it reminded of Demon of Song?

Haha, Demon of Song is perhaps a little better looking than that thing

Come clarity was done by Derek Hess, i'm not sure about this one but it doesn't have his style
I have this theory that their covers don't mean a thing, they just keep you wondering
Sword_Chant - 18.04.2014 at 21:13  
I'm not hating on the band, but the last two releases I really struggled to get into. I'm not slating their new material, as there are parts I enjoy, but I really do prefer the style of their earlier works. So I won't be raising my hopes too high for this album, the cover looks good, but really the songwriting and direction matters just as much
Fallen Ghost - 19.04.2014 at 10:01  
Looks like something from Come Clarity IMO
