Congratulations to February’s Cover Art of the Week Winner, Elvenking. “Red Silent Tides” (AFM Records) quickly gained the lead and never gave it up, as they finished with a dominating 59% of the vote.

Elvenking had this to say about their win: “We are very honoured the fans of chose “Red Silent Tides” cover as best cover of the month. As a band we have always been very focused on creating covers in order to fully represent the musical contents of the albums. ”Red Silent Tides” shows all the passion and emotions described in the album music and lyrical poetry. Samuel Araya did a marvelous job bringing on colours and images the romanticism and struggling of the album.”
