This is the second part to our “A Guide to (some of) the Best Metal Album Covers of 2012” posting last week. As we know, cover artwork was a big thing for Metal music in 2012. Many of them were epic, cryptic, nightmarish and more importantly, artfully executed. They helped to both enrich many listeners’ imaginations and to enhance the music itself; and this is why we’re covering them! In the second part to our guide, we keep exploring the stories behind some of these magnificent visual pieces. We’ve interviewed some of the designers and musicians involved with said art and they in turn opened for us new worlds of imagination an awe. Check it out!

Ihsahn once again takes us on a musical odyssey of sorts with his fourth solo release. After an amazing trilogy of albums, The Adversary, angL, and After, the Norwegian composer and multi-instrumentalist continues to surpass expectations with the masterpiece, Eremita.
