Creating artwork for a debut album can be a make or break situation. However, a debut album offers a graphic artist a blank slate and allows for a breadth of creativity. Seven Sisters of Sleep are a Los Angeles area metal band whose record label needed an extremely quick turnaround on cover art for a debut vinyl release.
Heavy metal demands a certain aesthetic, but we wanted to distinguish this LP from the redundant norm. Our plan was to take a detailed approach to the cover art that portrays a “visual narrative” for the prospective buyer. We created a wrap-around motif that encompasses both sides of the gatefold cover. Illustrations of Edwardian era occultism were seamlessly collaged to construct a dark and alluring scene. The end result is an exceptional collectable that presents the artist in a singularly unique light.
