This is the first part of a little project i am working on, called AltCovers - its basically alternative covers for cds i love but where i don't like the original artwork at all. first one i just had to do is Unter Nulls "The Failure Epiphany". This is mainly fun for me, but i decided that it would be nice to share it with the community.
I just noticed recenty how awesome Unter Null really are - a female fronted alternative to Velvet Acid Christ, which i also adore a lot. Anyway, the main reason for me that it took me so long to get to like them are the album covers - i generally don't have a aversion with gore, but for some reason Unter Null and especally The Failure Epiphany generate quite a disgusting feeling.
My approach to the artwork might be a very different one, but i feel that it also works nicely. i always like to create artwork that makes you curious about the music inside.
By downloading the picture you can get the mid-res version (12x12 cm, 150 dpi). you can either use it as an alternative for your digital music library or print it out and put it in the cd - i hope you enjoy it.
I have to admit that a lot of the aestetic comes from the stock i used, i have been dying to use that picture for something.
I also started a blog with my alternative covers, you can visit it via altcover.blogspot.com
