The third album by Finland-based thrash metallers Lost Society, Braindead, will be released on February 12th, 2016 via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band released the cover artwork for the upcoming album. It was created by Jan Meininghaus (Bolt Thrower, Sick Of It All, UDO, Holy Moses, Debauchery…).
Guitarist/vocalist Samy Elbanna states:
Jan really nailed it again! We were stoked to have the dude illustrate the cover of the new album, and I think he really captured the theme of the album in this artwork. The idea is pretty simple, in many ways Braindead talks about all kinds of f***** up scenarios and of how we’re trapped in this braindead society. Cheers to Jan!
Artist Jan Meinighaus added:
When I had another look at it today, I really liked the old school appeal of it. In combination with the given logo, everything reminds me of the classic releases I loved in the late 80s. It sure looks a bit ’airbrushed’ and over the top, but that’s exactly what I like about it in comparison to a lot of artworks that should be movie posters or videogame covers rather than thrash metal art.
