Also, each CD will be in it's own jewel case with individual artwork. The DVD will be in a cardboard slipcase, but will also have it's own printed artwork. There are four autographed photo inserts, a guitar pick, and the embroidered patch. I haven't seen the patch but I think it will be the cover art.

I kind of like the black and white better. With some shading to fill in and just a smidge of color that would suit me. Still, i'm interested in the box.

Man is this cover raising some stink. It's just suppose to be cheesy heavy metal fun! I've received some interesting emails and PMs. "It's too gory, it has not spiritual meaning, it's obviously just shock value with no thought to it, it's too cheesy, blah, blah, blah..." Is this cover really any more cheesy or cartoony than Puppet of Destruction?

Would these be the same nim-rods who gave you guys all the crap about the close-up of your junk on the LEX METALIS cover? Very Happy

Sheesh. People need to lighten up.

...and you should definitely smack the guy who's looking for "spiritual meaning" in your artwork.

I guess it's too late to change things now, but maybe if he was showing the "metal heart" proudly, instead of looking horrified it wouldn't seem as shocking. Or not. I dunno.

Bro, you don't have to defend this. Like you said, it's comic book, just for fun type artwork. Who cares what all the endless critics think!??

I have a Living Sacrifice shirt I got with The Infinite Order. It's got a three headed beast on the front with "Living Sacrifice" across the top. I wear it all the time...including to our bible study. I had a lady, right in the middle of our discussion, finally blurt out, "What is that picture of on your shirt....It's NOT very edifying." It's so absurd it's not even worth debating.

What if the "Ult" was holding the Metal Heart and one side of his face was melted off to reveal a Terminator-style metal skeleton underneath? Or somethin' like that. That'd be bitchin'. But again, probably too late to make any alterations now.

See Ult, you should've shown us a rough sketch a while ago so we could've all nit picked it to death for you. Very Happy

Not more cheesy, no, but you've given people something to complain about this time. There's blood, it's gory, etc. What could they complain about before? That jester has scissors! Waaaah!

Also, it's 2012, a day and age where whiners rule the Internet.

See, if y'all would just start handing out random head-smackings to people like these, they'd be less inclined to be annoying.

Hey lady (turns to her husband), do you find THIS edifying?

So what exactly would be "edifying" anyway? Rainbows, fuzzy bunnies, happy ducklings gathered at the feet of a smiling Jesus, that sort of thing? Very Happy

Overall I like the concept - but I think a more realistic human would appeal to more! But hey I know that cost alot of money as well -so for a limited print run - I predict a sellout!cheers

That would be my fault. I was looking for a comic book look. I gave the artist photos of myself in my stage cloths (denim vest, leather wristbands, etc.) and gave him the concept I was after.

You know, I should have and actually thought about putting it in The Flophouse, but I didn't want to 'leak' the cover before Bill at Roxx said it was ok to do. He's paying for all of this and he hired the artist.

Yeah, it definitely needs more rainbows, fuzzy bunnies, and happy ducklings. Maybe even a chipmunk or two. Very Happy

It is obviously showing the evils of under-age drinking and partying.

Of course!! And it teaches an important lesson -- drinking from a keg of nuclear waste will turn you into a zombie!!

Sadly, such lessons are usually lost on the target audience of impressionable teenagers. Very Happy

Rainbows = homosexuals
fuzzy bunnies = Pagan "easter"
happy ducklings = things that float = witches - BURN THE WITCH!
smiling Jesus = everyone knows the real Jesus hates more than He Loves = false prophet
