Dutch Blackened Metal
masters ONHEIL are looking for graphic artists, photographers and other creative
people to be part of the artwork creation for their next album 'Storm is coming'.
Just as with their previous album 'Razor', the album booklet will be packed with
a big amount of artwork and this time around ONHEIL also want their fans and
other metalheads to be part of their project.
Instead of adding the
lyrics ONHEIL shows the song's theme with imagery. "So we basically have about
fifteen album covers!" singer/guitarist Amok explains. "We really want the
listener to give their own interpretation of our songs and we believe images are
much stronger for the imagination than lyrics."
There was some
controversy around Onheil's last album 'Razor', initially giving problems
getting the album released. The artwork was said to be "indecent, obscene,
misogynic" and to be "glorifying violence and suicide".
But in the end ONHEIL
was able to get the album pressed without changing anything to their CD-booklet.
"When an artist creates artwork for us they have total freedom. Fuck censorship!"
singer/guitarist Amok comments.
The band is currently
working in the studio together with producers Bart Hennephof (TEXTURES) and Yuma
van Eekelen (EXIVIOUS, ex-PESTILENCE) to record the follow-up to their
underground classic 'Razor'. This new epos is nset to be released by German
metal specialists CYCLONE EMPIRE in the fall.
The artists that are
interested to co-operate on this project are asked to send an email with their
previous work or a portfolio to:
