WinterheartH wanted a very good cover and contacted Mark Richards. Richards has been called to action to illustrate a cover that personifies the natural contrast of life’s beautiful darkness by drawing upon aspects of one of literature’s most resonant works, Inferno by Dante. The three Furies against an infernal castle backdrop solidifies the overarching menacing sensibilities throughout the music. Mark’s previous work includes illustrations for: Primus, The Black Dahlia Murder, Pig Destroyer, and Carnifex.
