Please tell them it sucks, maybe they will make a last minute change and it won't fit right in next to the new Braindrill album aesthetically.

They put out an EP that was pretty cool and didnt have beyond stupid art.
Handful of new shows...new double album(this) and new DVD coming out.

The concept is stupid, but I like the art itself. I'm looking forward to hearing this. :cool:

I actually don't object to the concept, what I hate is the way it was done. Fuck computer looking art, especially on an old school death metal album. It all looks the same, and it all looks terrible. There are a dozen great artists that make fantastic "classic" death metal art, and I'm sure it would have cost them a fraction of the amount of money this digital shit did.

And the album will rule, I'm sure.

I hate the Photoshop album covers as well, but it doesn't really look like that to me. It's not a large enough image for me to tell though. I just thought the giant skull looked a bit dumb.

I'm with Wizz, it's a fucking clown car. The blue logo on the turquoise background, the skull and the cheesy looking background. Looks like a color blind 5th grader with photoshop did it.

Not an inherently bad cover but the lo-fi logo stacked against it is weird. Reminds me more of a Dismember or Suffocation cover for some reason.

Wait, do you not like the cover at all, or do you just think that obvious computer-drawn artwork doesn't suit Autopsy? Because I actually really like it.

It's not horrendous art, and the concept is cool, but it is horrendous Autopsy art.

At least Shitfun is gross, and Autopsy like. They do sing about shit a lot..

Looks like an Entombed or Gorguts cover. Or a reimagining of Beneath The Remains?

Still not pleased, but Autopsy responded to my trashing of it very nicely and now I feel bad because I worship those fuckers.
So I preordered it (was planning to anyway, but yaknow) and will wait to cast my final judgment until it's on a 12" scale.

I'm curious, what did they say?

That they were sorry to disappoint me with the cover but they hoped I'd still be able to enjoy the music :snivel:

Didn't think it was necessary to start a new thread, so... New song here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SD_gQsSv9s8

Like it, but I have a feeling Dayan's gonna come in here and tell us all why it sucks.

Why? It fucking rules.
Easily their best material since Mental Funeral.
