The face in the art reminds me of Korn cheese. Sucks.

Cover art is pretty sweet, kinda busy - but looks good.

Would like to pick this up on vinyl.

I like the cover art it kinda reminds me of Alex Grey's work, I still don't see why they didn't just name the album "Colossus", they're not even German...

Titles are fucking awesome. Cover is alright, but as said above somewhere, it doesn't matter.

Can't wait.

The full-sized shot is a lot better than the close-up. I think the Obzen art is awful, so I'm not sure why I had high hopes this time around.

Can't wait to hear it, though!

I love the Obzen art! Especially the photography of that ominous building. All stark and forbidding an sheet.

Cover is sorta cool. I like the face theme because Nothing's cover was amazing. Human identity deconstructed and expressed through synthetic fractal forms an sheet. Would have been better without the nose and mouth though.

Some titles are hit and miss.

Album will be colossal.

lol, that cover is ridiculous... I agree with Lesser though, 'ObZen' cover kinda sucked, too. Well, at least they're keeping it different, so whatever, props to them.

Seriously, people's obsession with covers these days.... Music is secondary, don't you know? Although in fairness, I guess no samples have been posted.

And personally, I don't think the cover is half as bad as many of you are making it out to be. It's pretty good actually. Better than obZen anyway (and DEI)

There are still 4-5 standing in the city today. Built by Hitler...to last (the cost of dismantling them is too high to justify...so they're still there, even in the inner city (but sometimes hidden). Go up a high building and they stand out like pimples on the skyline.

Ominous indeed!

The 3-D artwork for Meshuggah’s eighth studio album, KOLOSS, is named ‘Gateman’ and was created by Luminokaya.com who spent nine months developing the piece.

“The artwork,” states MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake, “speaks for itself.”

KOLOSS is scheduled for European release on March 23rd and in North America on March 27, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Speaks for itself lol
