    When I first saw a small picture of it, I thought it was awesome. Then I saw a large picture and noticed all the heads. It has to be one of the dumber album designs I've seen.

    When I first saw this post I assumed it was a joke, but according to Blabbermouth that is it. Unless of course Opeth is trolling us.

    I dunno. I'm kinda digging it in a "it's so bad, it's good" way.

    It's just as good (by good I mean bad) as their other album covers tbh.

    I really dig the cover but it would be much better without their heads in the tree. Other than that I like the art quite abit.

    Lots of stuff easter-egged into that cover. It's a tribute for sure.

    Not that I expect much from Opeth, but that's horrendously bad. Almost laughably so.

    Honestly get rid of the heads and it' fine. With them, however, it is just flat-out stupid.

    I would even go as far as to say that it would look amazing without the heads. Way to ruin it.

    I like it, the heads are a bit weird but still fits the style.

    I actually kind of like it, in fact I'd say that the whole Satan thing underneath the tree is worse then the heads.

    I "get" what they were going for with the prog rock thing... I really dont mind the cover, I guess... if the heads had something else going on, like maybe a babies, children, adult, old man's head then the skulls at the bottom, le shrug, I dont know.

    I like the vibe, but will agree the heads..... are meh. But whatever, fucking love Opeth and I for one don't give a shit in saying that I'm excited as all hell to hear this.
