Revealing the Secrets behind the Artwork

And so it happens that PureGrainAudio.com have asked Orpheus Blade’s artist Eliran Kantor to explain the idea behind the cover art, as a part of their "Best Metal Album Covers of 2014" annual article, side by side with Behemoth, Cynic and Alcest.

 

Here’s what he has to say:
