Swedish riff gods GRAND MAGUS have released the cover artwork of their upcoming masterpiece The Hunt. The cover art was done by Arik Roper (CATHEDRAL, HIGH ON FIRE, SLEEP), who also did the cover artwork for the GRAND MAGUS album Iron Will.
“Arik Roper is a super-talented artist and we’ve had the pleasure of working with him before when he did the cover art for our album Iron Will. This time around with the overall feel and lyrical themes of our new album The Hunt, Arik was the perfect choice once again. We basically just gave him the title and he created one of the most haunting and suggestive images ever seen. He totally nailed what the album is all about. To say we are pleased is a gigantic understatement! This piece of art will stand the test of time and become classic.”
The Hunt will be released May 25, 2012 (Europe) and June 5, 2012 (North America) via Nuclear Blast.
