Corrosion Of Conformity | No Cross No Crown | animated video

I am beyond excited to present you the animated video I made for the legendary band CORROSION OF CONFORMITY!!! I made the script, the illustrations and the animation and yeah, just watch it and you will see what’s about 😉 The song “Wolf Named Crow” is from their upcoming album “No Cross No Crown”.

It’s been a dozen years since CORROSION OF CONFORMITY recorded new material with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan at the helm. In that time, there have been rumors, whispers, and outright allegations that the legendary Southern rock outfit would reunite to blow the doors off the whole damn scene again.

And now, the long wait is over. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY returns with »No Cross No Crown« – an album that somehow sounds as though no time has passed between 2005’s »In The Arms Of God« and today.

‘No Cross No Crown’ is out on January 12th on Nuclear Blast Entertainment and you can order it now in CD, Vinyl, T-Shirt Bundle, Box Set, Cassette or Digital Formats HERE.

In Vain | Seekers of the Truth | Lyric video

Seekers of the Truth is by far not a random lyric video. Pushed by the message of the song, I wanted to add a new dimension to the whole presentation, which can be discovered in the message of the illustrations. For me, the lyrics of this song are talking about one of the vital issues of nowadays society, an issue which is felt just by a very few. Those are the seekers, who are still living out there, among this terrifying crowd of people who switched their reality with a common illusion, agreed and imposed by the system. So, with all these dramatic moments I tried to catch in my illustrations for this video, I hope I could make the message of the band more powerful, and I hope it will be reached by those who need it to go on.

Affasia | Adrift In Remorse

This is the front cover I made for Affasia – “Adrift In Remorse”. This is a very talented band from Richmond, Virginia and I need to say I really enjoyed this release very very much. You should check it out as well, it is not very easy for me to label them but I can put here some keywords: doom, a bit progressive here and there, interesting, melodic, clean and heavy vocals, great compositions, great sound, cinematic vibe, introspection, nostalgia, sadness. Made with heart. Check it out HERE.

In Vain | Currents | artwork

This is the front cover I made for the fourth album of Norwegian band In Vain. The album title, Currents, reflects on the colossal shifts and changes of our time. The present world is characterized by continental flows of people, traditions and cultures. Migration of people across continents and borders. Cultures merging. Dramatic shifts in lifestyle from one generation to the next. These are all currents – movements that distort old patterns, create tensions as well as new opportunities. I find myself blocked in the eye of this storm, observing but without finding a suitable alternative or a way of finding my place in this chaos.
Pre-order In Vain’s new album Currents and new merch HERE.

I am happy that I can finally present you the front cover I did for the upcoming album of the legendary melodic death metal band Night In Gales.

The album is entitled “The Last Sunsets” and is set to be released 23.02.2018 via Apostasy Records! \m/ More info HERE.

Hello everyone. I would like to present you my latest animation / video work, done this time for the band Cellar Darling.
