“The new album art depicts a child, which represents innocence in humanity, covered in dirt and blood from life’s experience,â€ explains frontman Maurizio Iacono. â€œIn front of him is death represented by a reaper, who comes to claim his soul for the afterlife or the abyss, whichever way you want interpret what happens next. We leave it open to the fans to decide with their own beliefs. This depiction of the transition between life and death was made by Hungarian artist Peter Sallai, and will be on the standard CD jewel case and limited edition cassette tape versions.”
Waiting for the End to Come was recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais and mixed by Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS).
