    very interesting, the cover makes me think more of Haven and Projector than Damage Done...I wonder if that thought has any significance...interesting track titles to.
    Can't wait to experience this!

    Great... Really interesting titles, so (derivation) TNB stands for "The New Build"... Really looking forward to this one! I'll add the Titles now in the "upcoming album" thread.

    the cover makes my perception go :loco:
    the view on the right side (red part) is different to the one on the left side, like as if each eye looks from a different point upwards.

    Or as if the red thing on the right side would be something like a tunnel or so...

    I'm getting excited here! :dopey: :OMG: The LtA EP is really cool too. The beginning of derivation TNB really makes me giggle of glee. It's both abyssal and melancholic. :Spin:

    Through Smudged Lenses sounds fishy.

    I don't think I'll have the money to buy this to be honest. It's a shame...but then again, if it's good enough I'll surely get the urge to buy it once I see it on the shelves.
    Great artwork, as most people have said.

    The cover looks like a city in the future, like kinda distorted-looking and a falling empire. and the rain really adds to the mood of the cover, a mood of destruction maybe? and the red thing on the right looks like a transportation vehicle, (or maybe i've been watching too much of star wars).

    Anyway, cant wait for the album.

    Wow. That art will be up for cover of the year no doubt. New track titles are interesting... going more towards the Format C: for cortex side of DT than the more Hedonish stuff (seems Technology is a theme more than nature). just get that feeling, not sure why exactly.

    I like the artwork a lot.
    The song titles are good.
    The album title is ..eh!

    Very nice though, very nice. I look forward to hearing it.

    ah yes, i thought this would become a widespread opinion... it's not you, i also think it looks a bit like a starship. however, to be true to the intentions of the author, it's not. it's a building, seen from the bottom looking up. following on my stressful "omfg! lookz like a trekky type of thing! g4mer! l33t! w00t! oh noes, dt go sci-fi!" comments, niklas tried to emphasize the elements that might help seeing it as a building instead. i think in the end the connection with a spaceship can still be made but it's not as overbearing as before, especially alongside the rest of the cityscape.

    Dry Run must be about the time when the Millenium Falcon wouldn't go into hyperdrive.

    I agree. And that's interesting, because then it would be more suitable calling this "Damage Done". hehe. And if you look at the Damage Done cover, it really looks more "Character" in my eyes. :p

    Well if the cover reflects the songs, this should be a very good album indeed :) Very interesting. Now we just wait...

    Well, the fact that it extends out in a horizontal plane relative to the rest of the city doesn't help it much in that regard [​IMG]

    To me it looks like a first person view.. "I" have just obtained the last weapon obtainable in my arsenal (from the previous boss), and am now on my way towards the city (where the decisive battle against the main villain will take place). And I'll soon start shooting baddies with that sweeeet Supercritical-Plasma 9000 Rifle mounted on my shoulder..
    :D

    Or.. that could easily be the above-ground tunnel which carries the train that goes into the train station in the east side of the city.

    that was one of the aspects that were supposed to remain unchanged, of course. clearly, an upright building very similar to the others on the cover wouldn't have created any problem of perception in the first place.
