“Mnemesis”, the latest album by Danish modern metallers MNEMIC, is out since the 8th of June 2012. Because of many requests regarding background information on the amazing cover artwork, guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie has now uploaded a video to YouTube in which he gives us all the details.
Mircea states: “The artist’s name is Metastazis (http://www.metastazis.com) and he has worked with ULVER, BLUT AUS NORD and MORBID ANGEL but also with more modern bands like THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER in the past. He’s mostly known for working mainly with Black Metal artists, usually designing more occult imagery.
Since I am designer myself, I have been asked why I didn’t do the cover, like I did in the past, so I’ve decided to offer you a video statement in order to grant insight in how it all came together. In my opinion it’s the best artwork we’ve ever had. Usually we stress till the very last minute, but this time it was more of a collective process. Since both me and our bass player Simone are graphic designers, we functioned more as art directors.”
