GAYLORD - The Black metal scene needs to be destroyed

One strange, fantastic day I was approached by Richard from Blackened Death Records to help with an album cover design. I was advised the logo is in the works by another talented artist, but the graphic still needed to be designed.

This graphic was to portray, strongly, the message of fuck Nationalist Socialist Black Metal, and fuck racism, sexism and inequality within black metal. Yes!

My prompts were to have skeletons hanging in the gallows dressed in black metal gear, with corpse paint and a general sad look about them. It was also to be kept on the quiet until completed and released, due to the strong nature of the album.

Once Richard combined my graphic with the logo and made this cover, the result was intense.
