There’s an interesting story behind this painting. I’ve been subscribed to a YouTube channel called ‘Atmospheric Black Metal’ for a while when this album, ‘Todbringer’ by Ellende came out.
I remember listening to it and admiring the artwork, then totally forgot about it for more than a year until one day I accidentally saw a flash of the cover somewhere on the internet. I could not remember its name nor the name of the artist so I went back to the YouTube channel and browsed through the huge collection of albums until I finally found it.
The original image was painted by Lukas, the talented musician himself.
