The release of Opeth's latest album, Pale Communion, saw them take an ever more 70's prog direction moving away from their Swedish black metal roots. The music itself is a wonderful mix of Classic Rock, Hammond Organ and Mellotron. The music is, as ever, fantastic but the artwork of the cd release leaves a lot to be desired, including the fact that thanks to the typeface, typesize and backgrounds chosen its almost impossible to read the song lyrics.

This inspired a personal project to produce a piece of artwork for seven of the eight songs, Goblin being an instrumental. I have tried to remain true to the style of the band's music and lyrics when producing these (click on the image to see a larger version).
