I like the title, which fits in some way with the band's name and also their humour, and I like the concept of the cover-artwork too. A twisted war-zone does indeed seem like something straight out of hell.
But is it just me, or is there way too much yellow and green colour in it? Other than this, I don't think it's that bad.

I've had same feeling but then i hear some of the new songs..imo they are great so i think that album will be also!
And production is better imo but that is just me


I agree! "Burning Sun" and "Another Shot Of Life" were both killer songs and had some of the best sound productions from these guys yet. It really seems like we're gonna have another winner on our hands.

What's Jack Skellington doing in the this cover on the bottom right?


Haha! I'm glad I wasn't the only one to spot that. Though I hope for Helloween's sake that nobody from Disney spots it!

The only good thing I can say about the cover is it isn't the worst one in Helloween's discography. It is probably the best digital artwork that's been on a Helloween album to date, but seeing as the others were terrible, that isn't saying very much! Still, the artwork for Gambling With The Devil was even worse than this one, and that was a great album, so I'm still looking forward to the album lots.

Like a couple of other guys hinted, they must have stolen this idea from Tim Burton. It´s not the best looking album cover of all times, but I´m sure it´s going to be a great record.

Hehe, yeah it's weird how their album covers are always sub-par compared to the amazing music.
Don't think I've heard "Nabataea", I must find it immediately!
