Top cover: initial version. Bottom cover final version randomly inspired by a communication between Metal Blade member and Matthew Greywolf. In the middle of the original artwork there were little, fine ornaments, too thin for the planned spot print. The Metal Blade guy marked this part of the artwork with a red circle to show which part he thought was messy. Upon opening the file Matthew realized that red as third colour somehow added a lot to the existing artwork so he added a red gradient in the background and changed the final version at last minute.
