One of my favourite record covers is the cover of Satyricon’s Volcano. The cover art fits the music perfectly – dark, menacing, stringent and minimalistic. The band shots were taken in the Icelandic landscape by Marcel Leliënhof.
Til Det Bergens Skyggene is a German musical project that really triggers your imagination. The man behind it is Lord Vranevorn, who also runs the label Voldsom that releases TDBS, among other bands/projects. TDBS really puts you in a meditative mood, and your mind floats away… Dark, ambient landscapes! Listen to Vandringen I (Skoglandskap), and you’ll see what I mean!
