On Monday At The Gates Recruit Costin Chioreanu For New Album was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Swedish metal band At The Gates have revealed the cover artwork for their forthcoming album - and the band says that it captures the feel of the record perfectly.
The artwork for At War With Reality, the band's fifth album, was designed by Costin Chioreanu, who has worked with bands including Arch Enemy, Morgoth and Darkthrone. And guitarist Anders Bjorler says Chioreanu was a natural fit.
He says: "I got in touch with Costin a few years back and I was immediately impressed with his dark and original style. He collaborated on some t-shirt designs for At The Gates as well as designing the album artwork for my instrumental project.
"The concept of the album is based on the literary genre called magic realism. The main style within this genre is the notion that reality is ever-changing and needs to be constantly rediscovered and reconquered.
"We realised early on that his style would accompany the music and concept perfectly." Check out the artwork - here.
