Completely revised artwork from the 1989 original press of this record, attributed entirely to various licensing quarrels with the Warhammer fantasy gaming company, this new spread was created from scratch by original Warhammer artist John Sibbick, the fellow who also penned the work for the first version. In terms of theme, the spread here isn't entirely removed from that OG work; depictions of a futuristic war ridden landscape, employing similar characters and colours. Though original copies of this album consistently sell for upwards of $70-$80 in places like eBay and Discogs, I wouldn't argue with someone if they wanted to sell (or give) me one, first press artwork being the prime motivating factor.
I would be curious to know what the band think of this Earache reissue. As far as I know, they don't take any royalties from Earache reissues like this, due to various contractual loopholes. As dodgy as it may be, it's also time for the label to reissue At The Gates and Entombed (fingers crossed, I'd love some crisp copies of those bands records).
