Canada’s mightiest Rock/Metal site, PureGrainAudio.com, recently debuted a column entitled “…And Justice For Art”, an unprecedented new series focused on exploring every detail behind the making of some of the most stunning cover artworks in the history of Metal music. The first installment of the series, which posted earlier this month, explored the impact that cover artwork can have on the overall album experience and tapped the brain of famed artist Eliran Kantor [TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, SIGH] as well as members of ARCHIAOS and CORMORANT. The second addition to the series gets a bit more in-depth and examines the creation of the artwork for DEATH’s Symbolic. Read it at this location.
Part 3, which can be found here, sees Kantor discussing his work on the cover for SIGH’s newest masterpiece, In Somniphobia. Next week, the series will examine the visual accompaniment to CORMORANT’s Dwellings.
“…And Justice For Art” is the result of the tireless efforts from the series’ mastermind and frequent PureGrain writer Ramon Martos-Garcia, who is also known in the underground scene for his involvement with Third World Metal bands like Archaios, Divinis Invocat and the indie record label Dark Canvas Records.
A video teaser for the series can be viewed at this location.
