Today is the day you get to see the album cover that will grace Conjuring The Dead, which is the impending new album from Austrian extreme metal duo Belphegor. The cover design was created by the well-known Greek artist Seth Siro Anton (Septicflesh), who also painted the cover of Pestapokalypse IV in 2006.

As for new music? Be patient...





Helmuth comments: "The spectacular cover, the offensive lyrical content, the Death Musick. Belphegor's nine new sound collages are a new dimension of intensity and dynamics."

Seth Siro Anton adds: "Once you can customize the basic principles of Renaissance painting and deriving energy/data from chaotic reservoir of unconscious...you get Belphegor's Conjuring The Dead cover art."

Conjuring The Dead was recorded at Mana Studios in Florida under the direction of Eric Rutan. Their new album will be unleashed on August 8th (Europe/ North America) and August 11th (UK/France) via Nuclear Blast.

Can all these extreme metal bands stop using Seth's artwork, please? The guy is skilled, and I like a good few of his pieces, but this is just getting seriously redundant at this point.

I'm just not gonna say anything for once.

Absolutely horrible.

Candidate for the worst cover I'm seen.

Much worse than excreta.

New SS cover sucks too. Totally disastrous.
Alex Fenger - 07.05.2014 at 21:24  
Dear god absolutely horrible artwork.

I didn't realize that "the basic principles of Renaissance painting" included forcing people to gouge out their eyes.

Shame to see such a shitty artwork, quite liked their last cover a bit. But this just fucking sucks and yes this guy and his digital artworks are totally shitty. They could have just gone to Paolo girardi instead.

Now that man is an exceptional artist. Truly talented at what he does in my eyes. And to top it off, he's quite the looker

Oh my god this is so unique and amazing and totally unlike anything else I've ever seen before.

All you haters are missing the point. What matters is that Anton's artwork connects with the viewer on a level that no other artist has ever obtained. Just what that level is can's be defined. It can only be felt. And the only way to feel it is to look. And I do mean LOOK. You shouldn's do so much as twiddle your thumbs during the viewing of this, or any other of his artworks. You would only be hurting yourself. His only rivals in this department would be the immortal classical renaissance artists, such as Da Vinci and Michaelangelo. But Seth Siro Anton still beats them out.

There it is! Timeless reference. (The whole thing obviously, but that line in particular always gets me.)

Cover's a whole lot of meh. Typical extreme metal cover.

Boy needs to invest in some Toilet Duck and a brush.

I just can't fucking deal with this guy's pieces of shit...

Previously belphegor covers had their distinct look

The comments written by the members here remind me of a group of school girls gossiping to each other, each building off the previous in an attempt to make one's self feel important. The artwork is great.
!J.O.O.E.! - 08.05.2014 at 14:46  
Gossiping implies people are doing it covertly. This is more like a public indictment of a terrible graphic artist.

it just goes to show how comical this guy's body of work is becoming.

The guy is skilled,



This guy's art has got to be some of the most repulsive shit I've ever seen.

I'm not sucking Seth's dick or anything, just saying I like his work, but that its overuse by bands as of late is starting to get really irritating. Too much of anything is never a good thing. So if you think you've detected any fanboyism here, try again.
!J.O.O.E.! - 09.05.2014 at 00:05  
From his official gallery this is the only one I can say I like.

^ That's actually very nice. No band would take it of course. They prefer all the other shit.

Indeed. He's definitely a better painter than he is graphic artist.

Gotta agree with you. Scrolled through some of his stuff and his paintings are on average waaaay better than his other works.
