I'm liking it.

The border thing is cool, and the art is unique for an album cover, but also works well, which is a good thing.

However in case you reconsider I have created a more cliche Viking style cover if you want to use it to get the message across a bit clearer.


Bwahahahahaha! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

...and it was in a press release by Metalblade (a much larger version also), sorry I did not post it here before, but I have been very busy for a while already... <sigh>

But I will surely get back to you with first impressions of the songs soon. Stay tuned! (not yet got the material, no)

Now that we can see the full-sized version on the official site, we can get a better idea of whats going on in the artwork, and i have to say, now that i have a good view, it looks alot better.

It does look much better. I still the think the warrior's stance looks a little...unnatural, but it mostly looks very cool and a nice tie-in to the first two albums.

A good friend of mine (who also converted the Emotional Skies video so everyone could watch it) has spontaneously photoshopped his own idea of what the cover for "Northwind" should have looked like. We had been discussing the actual cover a bit on the forum of our Club Mats website and this is what he came up with:

What do you think?

Those are cool! I really like the first one (the second is just a little tooo cliched). Although the officiall cover seems to have more of a Falconer vibe about it, if you know what I mean.

The first idea looks better indeed. It would have been interesting to see Meninghaus paint a version of such concept. It kinda fits the idea Stefan talked about, if perhaps in a subtler way.

Yeah, I agree. I don't like the second version, either.

On the official website I found this larger und clearer version of the Northwind cover design. Looks much better than the tiny picture. I kinda like it!

Now that looks a lot better, although I still think the way the warrior is standing looks a little...stilted? :?

Maybe he's stiff and sore after a long battle (both physical and emotional) so his confirmation isn't as "together" as it could be?   Just a thought.  I know I sometimes walk like that after mucking stalls.

I believe that the setting of the first album, and of Northwind are the same. Not just because of the falconer on the cover, but if you look at the first album, near the bottom-right hand corner, just above the cape, you will see a small viking village. Just think about it, the falconer has returned home after 5 years of plundering northern europe to put this violent past behind him.  Whether intentionally, or by some coincodince, there is at least an artistic conection between the two albums.
