Swiss legends SAMAEL have just revealed the cover artwork for their upcoming album „Lux Mundi“ which will be released April 29th. “For the cover artwork of “Lux Mundi” I envisioned a series of rays starting or ending at the centre of the cover. I wasn’t even thinking about any kind of motives, just black on black using a matte and shining black to make the rays apparent. I spoke about that with Patrick (Pidoux) who did the artwork of “Solar Soul” and “Above” and he came out with that idea upon which we immediately all agree“, commented frontman Vorph. “I drew a very graphic version of an eye which represents sight, the first human sense able to capture light”, added Patrick Pidoux. Here you can check out the first studio report. “On a few occasions during the recording of “Lux Mundi” our friend Sergey Ulyanov (who did the “Black Hole” video) came to the studio with his camera. He later assembled and edited what he shot and put some of the new songs as background music. That would eventually become a 3 episodes teaser for the new album”, reports Vorph.
