      looks like a power metal band album cover… which judging by the sound bits theyve put out, would make sense

    Just based off of everything that A7X has done in order to keep the fans interested, I smell a concept album. This should be interesting.

    hmm…. cant wait to hear! I would say the cover could’ve used more detail, but it’s whats on the inside that counts..haha. I do love how they incorporated a deathbat, so to say, in the cover.
    So…..HELL YEAH!!!!
