Swedish black metal legends Samael show off their cover art for “Lux Mundi.” Here are some various comments about the cover:
“For the cover artwork of “Lux Mundi” I envisioned a series of rays starting or ending at the centre of the cover. I wasn’t even thinking about any kind of motives, just black on black using a matte and shining black to make the rays apparent. I spoke about that with Patrick (Pidoux) who did the artwork of “Solar Soul” and “Above” and he came out with that idea upon which we immediately all agree“, commented frontman Vorph.
“I drew a very graphic version of an eye which represents sight, the first human sense able to capture light”, added Patrick Pidoux.
“Lux Mundi” is due out April 29th on Nuclear Blast.
