Oh man, that cover is really... cosmic? I like it
I'm not very expectant about this release, but Therion can change a lot between records, so, we'll see.

Yep, who knows what this will sound like...

I love Therion but that cover is just awful. Let's hope the music is better.

Pretty average artwork imo...

I think it's kinda cool, but I see the Kabbalah theme again and it worries me. I only liked a few songs from that one...

Bad taste. Gothik Kabbalah cover was way better imo , this one doesn't inspire anything to me, it looks like a scene from a bad sci fi movie. Well, let's hope the music is good , or at least different from what therion has accustomed us to.

To me the artwork looks just fine, and I think that the album itself will be as good as all of the previous releases, for long I've been fan to both Therion and classical music in common, and the combination of metal and classical music cannot never fail.

The artwork is pretty cool.

Not crazy about the album cover, but it'll grow on me, I bet. Sorta like the Sirius B one.

Looks nice.. by the cover I have a feeling of a ''sci-fi interstellar orchestral metal''... I wouldn't mind that.

Looks like they got the cover somewhere on DeviantArt, in 2003.

I looks like a claw-like hand holding a poppadom (Indian crunchy things) with a meatball. Looks tasty with all that energy!

I just hope the album is good. I'll pass on the cover though.

I have to say, that the graphic looks cheap. Computer rendering is somwehere from the nineties in terms of detail and quality.
We probably have more details moon/asteroid pictures than what's here. Also the clam look cheap. Hope the music's better.
Sovereign87 - 07.07.2010 at 01:16  
To be honest, the background is cool but the rest looks really cheap. I don't like it but it's not worse than A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming or Theli haha !

Here is an interview of Christofer Johnsson during Graspop 2010 where he also talks a little bit about Sitra Ahra. Well i'm a little afraid when he mentions "a 70s type of production","doesn't sound modern at all", "It sounds like 20 years old"...
