The long-awaited upcoming Moonsorrow 14xLP box set previously announced has its pre-order date set for May 28th, 2014, as announced by Finnish label Blood Music. The box set promises to be the largest metal box set of all-time and spans almost the entire career of the Finnish outfit. The label and the band have been releasing one image per day, slowly revealing all the details about the set. The newly-drawn, unifying cover art has been unveiled for every item within the set, including Suden Uni, Voimasta Ja Kunniasta, Verisäkeet, V: Hävitetty, Tulimyrsky, Demos & Rarities, and a Moonsorrow DVD.

The images were hand-drawn by artist Rainbath Visual (Reuben Sawyer). A bigger size image of the full collection here.

You can follow all the new updates on this Blood Music release on their Facebook page as well as other details about the artworks.

All due respect to fans of Moonsorrow (I've never listened to them) this is ridiculous. That's more vinyl than on the floor in my kitchen.

Hey, if you can afford it and the band interests you it's a pretty amazing thing.

If by new Voimasta Ja Kunniasta artwork they mean a black and white version of the original, then yeah. TOTALLY NEW.

Seen all this unfold on FB a few days already. There's also a fair amount of editing done on teh artwork other regular album covers too such as Verisakeet, their best album. I've been amped up for this ever since before Christmas. Just a bit upset that Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa isn't on there despite it's recent easy-to-find output and neither is there relatively soon upcoming album.....

It is an amazing thing, but I can't fiscally justify spending the money on a collection that I will only listen to half of.

Hey so let's take this cool well drawn artwork and then make it black and white and lame, everyone will think that's cool right?
Mattybu - 09.05.2014 at 07:16  
I will think it's cool. Love all that black and white stuff.

Hey folks! If you don't know the band, you can have a listen:

Thanks for the kind words!

For those who don't like the images - the idea was to structure the entire collection together with single unifying elements. We didn't just turn the artwork black-and-white. We had an artist painstakingly redraw every detail from every cover, which required months and months of work. We have the original drawn images here, and they're insane and beautiful.

We will be revealing the inner layouts one-by-one on our Facebook page, starting tomorrow.

Also, the band's new record is not nearly completed, so we could not include it in the set. Also, we left "Varjoina ... " out, as we stated, because 14xLPs is already pretty immense and the band is still recording.

For now, here is the rest of the hand-drawn graphic elements that go on the record jackets themselves, as well as the collection's title:

I'm buying this, I don't care how much it is I'm buying it. Moonsorrow is a legend, and continues to inspire me to this day.
Vombatus - 09.05.2014 at 19:18  
I'll be getting this, shame no Varjoina... is included, even if it is quite easy to acquire a LP copy unlike the others.... When you make a 14 lp boxset, one more vinyl or one less shouldn't be a big deal
