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!"

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)

Wow, now that is different from the stuff they usually put on their covers. Can't wait for it to be released

Unusual for them, very simple but good looking cover.
Infurnace - 17.09.2008 at 16:10  
Looks pretty good to me. Just glad they didn't use a comic cover again.
Slyfang - 17.09.2008 at 16:38  
quite similar to the Hellfire Club cover
GT - 17.09.2008 at 16:38  
A bit boring but still a nice cover
juanopereira - 17.09.2008 at 16:48  
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".
Janne - 17.09.2008 at 16:58  
wtf? I don't want Edguy to become a serious band...
Spyroid - 17.09.2008 at 17:23  
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!
Snbn - 17.09.2008 at 17:24  
I like this cover. Rocket Ride cover was too hilarious!!!!
Abattoir - 17.09.2008 at 17:27  
Honestly, I don't like this cover.

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

if i usually don't like a cover or find it insulting, no matter how good the music is, i aint buying it... i'll download it instead... Edguy got a lot of money from me so far... i don't think they will mind this time xD
Jason W. - 17.09.2008 at 21:40  
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.
BlankFile - 17.09.2008 at 22:51  
Now that´s a bold cover...
LeChron James - 17.09.2008 at 22:54  
INTERNAL HEMMORHAGES for the win.
insanity.peppers - 18.09.2008 at 00:35  
'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?
Black Conundrum - 18.09.2008 at 01:40  
I did not see the blood coming out if the statue's ear at first either.
ThunderAxe1989 - 18.09.2008 at 05:21  
no more comic covers?

why jesus is on the cover though?
Zeh - 18.09.2008 at 13:21  
are they now hard-power-white metal as Stryper? Oh Jesus

Go on, ask from Edguy's that do they mind if you download this one.... I'll bet they will. Downloading sucks anyway.
Tursti - 18.09.2008 at 14:52  
And now, cover looks cool, and if it would not look cool, I still would buy it.

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

i think most bands get money from live shows, not album sales

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