The new Sheer Terror record is surprisingly good lay-outed. The gatefold features artwork from a Belgian artist Dave Decat. The scene’s on the front-, back- and inside-cover breath an atmosphere filled with tensions, while the color scheme suggest something merry. A contrast that gives the whole a sick feeling. Also what’s pictured – axes and blood – suggest violence that happened or alsothat can still happen.

As you can see, very well done. Just three drawings and a whole story is told.
The vinyl record comes in a printed inner, in black and white scale. Paul Bearer hasn’t changes a bit. Still straight up in the face communication. Telling it like it is.

Also the hype sticker on the shrink, which was removed to see inside the gatefold sleeve, is cool. I cut it out and will keep it with the record. Nothing to be proud of. But again straight and delusional truth told.
