The band’s guitarist Luisma (and illustrator of the cover art) passed along the following: “I never expected my art could win anything as is gory and disgusting. I wanted to get a “cartoonish” look for this cover. My intention was the doctor image would be like a super-hero in Marvel style. Its a big contradiction as he’s evil in some way. Thanks to everyone that voted for my artwork.”
The polls are now open for this week’s Cover Art of the Week featuring Autopsy, Dark Castle, and three other metal friends.
