    Thats intersesting. But what has the picture got to do with the album? Id have thought a skeleton would have been more likely.Given the bands name.

    I was expecting a picture of Skeletorr from He Man.

    The picture looks a bit Final Fantasy. Similer to the Yoshitako Amano picture on the omnibus.Interesting sword.

    Did you add the bit in brackets in the title of this thread cos people didnt think it was MM.

        The earlier album already did that! And had many Skelator/Heman referances incluing: "Skelator," "She Ra (Will Be Mine)" and my favorite "The Skelatorian Manifesto" (all available for download at the band's site)

        I notice the torn red cloak instantly and put two and two togather - but then again those unfamiliar with the band's mannerisms would have lost the connotation :D

          Are they really heavy /death metal? I like Seether and Drowning pool, but i feel the need to get into heavier music.

          I think when you get into rock and metal, you get into heavier and louder music. Next year i will be into death metal. If it goes like that ill be a heavy goth instead of a Light Goth.

            Real death metal is as close to Goth as the Cure is to Slayer.

            If you want to hear some great Death Metal, check out:

            http://www.illogicist.com/emptywords...prehension.mpg

            (You may want to completely download it before you try to play it.)

            Their first 4 records, from Scream Bloody Gore to Human are classics. You do not get any more death metal than DEATH itself.

            Lyrics to song on video:

            5. LACK OF COMPREHENSION

            A condemming fear strikes down
            Things they cannot understand
            An excuse to cover up weaknesses that lie within
            Lies
            Laying your guilt and pain
            On people that had no part in the molding of a life
            That creates its destruction
            Lies
            Right before your very eyes
            A reflections of the mistakes
            To the end you will deny
            Your part in the demise of a life
            Lack of Comprehension
            Thriving on your clichأ©
            Compelled by self-resentment

            Reaching into the minds of those that created
            The depression in which they
            In which they drowned their flesh and blood
            Lies
            So easy to blame the
            Everlasting fear on a pathetic attempt
            To justify the ending of life
            Lies
            Right before your very eyes
            A reflections of the mistakes
            To the end you will deny
            Your part in the end of a life
            Lack of Comprehension
            Thriving on your clichأ©

              A tasty bit of artwork. Is there a Moorcock link to the lyrics?

                If your refering to the picture of the album in the first post, yeah.

                Id say,thought ive not heard it, that the albums something to do with the first 3 Corum books. Theye are called the Swords trilogy.

                I admit, I could be wrong.

                Those lyrics are surprisingly good. I, not knowing a lot about Death Metal, thought they would be more gory.

                I am only just getting the knack of cutting and pasting, so ignore any mistakes.
