Commented singer/mainman Magnus Pelander: â€œA friend of mine had an idea about a cover for Legend. I developed the idea and gave it back to my friend who then passed it on to another friend who happened to be a designer. The designer then pushed it in a new direction. The result is already legendary.â€œ
Bass player Ola Henriksson adds: â€œThe album cover is meant to reflect the music and I think it does that with its heavy, dark & clean design.â€œ
Legend will be released September 21 (Europe) and September 25, 2012 (North America) via Nuclear Blast. The follow up to 2007’s The Alchemist was produced by the renowned Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (KREATOR, OPETH, AMON AMARTH, PARADISE LOST, KATATONIA).
