do you think there's any symbolism in this? or do you think the artist tried to cram as much stuff on to a skull as possible? i honestly cant tell.

It shows a bunch of stoned metalheads trying to look even more br00tal than they already are. Which is very brutal.

It looks like it's related to the Day of the Dead.

Its Psychoanalytic Theory portrayed as art, displaying the different levels of conscious and drives in the human mind.

The creature snarling out of the lower part of the cranium is the unconscious/id. The drive we have for aggression and sex and nothing more. It remains in the deepest darkest parts of ourselves.

The roses symbolize perfection, the superego where we see everything as perfect as it MUST be according to the superego (whether its realistic or not)

The light symbolizes the ego/conscious thoughts. The thoughts that we can see and act on and that unite the extreme needs of the Id and Superego to a more realistic medium.

The smoke symbolizes the eternal burning and trauma inside the human mind. Going by psychoanalytic theory, the human mind is never truly at peace, and always at war with itself to reach unreachable ends.


Okay, that was my attempt at being smart

Can we find ourselves, walking through a field with no solitude,
The pain goes on."

From using the best analytical minds and techniques currently at my disposal, combined with my PHD in symbolism throughout the ages I can safely say that the markings, colours and iconography indicate that the album is in fact a sepultura album

I believe that they make these covers intentionally like this. That way the consumer can get stoned out of their mind, listen to the record and try to find stuff in lyrics or album cover.
