The beer from the grave

Here I am with Ola (Grave) at the Netherlands Deathfest, presenting the brand new Grave beer which includes my illustrations on the label! It tastes also very good, harsh and aggressive! Thanks Leif Jensen for the picture!

A fantastic journey started

This was a magic moment consumed at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport: Terminal 5, when the At the Gates gang and I went into a great adventure!

At The Gates, the gate to a new level of expression

Finally, I can show you the cover I made for the new At The Gates album! Normally, being a huge fan of the band since the mid 90’s, I would have a super long text for presenting or explaining this… But I’ve been so deeply rooted into this project and I know what this magic title can actually spread in the world… I will be short this time, therefore I say: thank you so much At The Gates for giving us, the sunset generation, a strong tip about how to resist and about how to go on. We should not fear the night, we should just drink from the night itself. The new At The Gates album “To Drink From The Night Itself” will be out on May 18th, 2018 via Century Media Records and it is produced by Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Haunted, Dimmu Borgir, etc.) at Parlour Studios in the UK. You can pre-order the album HERE.

Strychnia, a crazy animated video

So… This is the fourth official video premiere during only one week. Maybe now you will start to understand why I am a bit slow on replying this period. After Oceans of Slumber , Susperia and Primordial, the time has come for something really out of hand, in straight connection with the pure insanity and some brutal stuff. It’s about the animated video which I created for a death metal band from New Jersey, called Strychnia. The song is killer and features CJ McMahon of Thy Art Is Murder. Check this out!

Oceans of Slumber | No Color, No Light | animated video

Well, this was a very intense project at all levels, from the amount of work and the pile of exclusive illustrations made for it to the very powerful experience of living for million times each second of this absolutely mind-blowing song. This is for those who still live without just moving around. Love walks with you in this life. Enjoy it, consume it, but always keep a small reserve for that magic moment when dreams become reality… Therefore, enjoy Oceans Of Slumber featuring the exquisite voice of Tom S Englund of Evergrey in one of the biggest hits in metal world of 2018. The full album is available HERE.
