Edguy - New Album Cover Revealed


Edguy have just revealed the album cover for their forthcoming new studio album "Tinnitus Sanctus" which will be released worldwide on November 14th.
Last Saturday the record company invited the press to the studio where the album was played to several European journalists who were all really impressed with the fresh and heavy sound. More than one journalist came up with the memorable remark that the album will underline Edguy's status of having become Germany's leading Hard'n'Heavy band, setting off to new horizons, featuring typical trademarks without repeating themselves. This album is a statement of innovation and credibility and as Tobias has put it, "A vitamin shot in the arm of a boring and predictable genre!"

The "Tinnitus Sanctus" cover can be viewed here

Boy am I glad they finally abandoned that comic look. Never suited them. Let's hope the actual album will also be better than the last one.

When i first saw this news.. then i thought ''Okay, another silly cover'' but when i clicked view... i was like wtf?

It's jesus christ xD

But hey, imo it looks a little bit ''old school'' it's pretty similar to teh vain glory opera's cover. (Of course that cover hasn't got jesus christ but it's the same concept)

It seems this album will be more serious. I like it. And the detail of blood coming from the ear... nice. They used well the meaning of "tinnitus".

I guess most people who commented here didn't spot the blood running out of Mr Jesus' ear. Neither did I at first So well, this is quite a humorous cover Gonna buy the album for sure!

Because you don't like the cover? Come on man, it's about the music whether or not to buy that. But yes, I didn't see the blood at first. Now I like the cover even more

I can't say the cover does much for me, as I'm always bored by covers that have a small subject centered in the cover.

'The Holy Ring'? interesting...

I know not to take Edguy seriously. But unless there's a specific reason for it I don't see why they needed a picture of Jesus bleeding out the ear. It's not that I'm majorly offended, but they're always saying how their image/music isn't supposed to hold any political/social/religious meaning so what's the point?

Go on, ask from Edguy's that do they mind if you download this one.... I'll bet they will. Downloading sucks anyway.

I still keep to my opinion. Those guys have their pay from music, and you kinda steal from them by downloading.

Yeah, but it won't change fact that you still are stealing. And money is always money.
