    I got to looking at the 'Downburst' cover again the other day and I came up with a theory, if you will, about what this cover concept looksd like to me.

    Is it perchance that this cover is somewhat, at least, loosely based on the Assassin's Creed video game?

    Andy doesn't say anything about Assassins Creed in that interview. Its a cool album cover but its totally taken from Assassins Creed. I love the album btw

    It's a obvious rip-off, even if Andy doesn't admit it:loco:

    I agree. I' mean you have this major advertising blitz for Assassin's Creed and then all of a sudden Brainstorm's new album cover comes out with obvious similarities to the AC character. It's too much of coincidence not to have some relation to the game.

    I mean, it's cool and all, but don't deny it by saying, "Oh there was lots of killers [back then]..." Com'on, call a spade a spade.
