Skyforger have posted the following update regarding a new upcoming album:

"Finally this is time for big news package about our new album Kurbads, which will be released by Metal Blade on 23/26 April in Europe, 11 May in North America. Today we would like to post the first song of new album Kurbads online and reveal the album cover and song titles.

Skyforger recorded Kurbads at the Latvian studio Lauska in 2009 together with the band's own bagpipe player Kaspars Barbals handling engineering duties. The band members also produced the album themselves. The artwork was created by Skyforger's guitarist Martins and is connected to the whole story of Kurbads. More information regarding the concept of Kurbads will be revealed shortly.

Meanwhile you can enjoy the new song "Son Of The Mare", the first single of the new album. Check out the song by clicking here (you can find the music player at the right of the screen).

Cover art looks like it's by a kid

I, too, make my band's album art in paint.

Oh my...

Cover art...you're doing it wrong...

One of the most amateur album covers I've ever laid eyes upon...
Black Conundrum - 04.03.2010 at 04:17  
I think the album art is interesting; there is rarely an album cover that is animated like this. IT's also interesting seeing the negative commentary toward it. To each person their own.

According to me - there are some borders...and they was crossed this time...

the song is quite good, but "thanks" to cover art, this album wont ever find its way into my collection (not even at the time when i will be the billionaire able to buy every metal album in the world )

Kurbads ir the hero from one Latvian fairy-tale. And cover art clearly express a fragment from this fairy-tale when Kurbads kills the dragon.
I'm waiting for this album.

What's wrong with cover art? Does it improve or make worse songs? You are talking like children - "I don't like that picture. I don't want that album! It sucks!!!".


But i don't like the song... I hoped they could make something similar to Latvian Riflemen but...Maybe next time.
Ellrohir - 04.03.2010 at 18:55  
Album art is simply serious part of the release...of course that i can download the music only and dont care about some picture, but i simply wont buy original cd, if the cover is crap

I hoped they'll make something like "Pērkoņkalve"! I guess I'll just check this one out later.
I don't like the cover art as well. It's clear that paintings are paintings but this one simply doesn't seem to be good as a cover art - there's something missing... The good thing is that it has nothing to do with the music.

If you keep your cd collection just to "enlarge your dick" (look guys, I got huuuuge CD collection. They look so awesome all together!) then probably artwork is important.

You often spend your money for things you DON'T like? just not to be considered "narrowminded" or "elitist" by someone you only know over internet?
W-Lash - 09.03.2010 at 11:35  
You didn't get my idea at all.
Why do you buy a CD? For music or for cover?
Ellrohir - 09.03.2010 at 21:51  
For both...but whats more - music i can download...buying the "real" thing, it means that i like the recording so much, that i find it worth to invest my money in...and the matter of being "worth" consists from both "how it sounds" and "how it looks like" things...the end

Another song online available.
As bad as the first was.
