    One of the coolest things in recent memory, save the title font color...

    [​IMG]

    Is there a story behind it? Can anyone come up with any? Where is that house, or whatever that building is...located?

    Food for thought...

    Isn't that the (or some) studio? Maybe I'm thinking of something completely different, or maybe I just made that up in my head. But for now, I think that's it.

    In Norway, everything is in a shed in the woods. Didn't you know that? :D

    One of the titles on the album means "the old farm" or something like that.

    Thats what I always thought it was.

    Well, the cover of our debut may remind of Børge's studio but it isn't. The coverphoto is quite old actually and is shot by a known Norvegian photographer named Johan Brun. (He is not in the family...hehe...) We paid quite allot of money to use the photo, probably the most expensive cover that we have, but when I saw the photo in a book back in '94-'95 I just had to use it.....
