Album Cover of the Whatever

Mariusz Lewandowski.  That name means something to metalheads who pay attention to the artwork that adorns the covers of their favorite bands' albums.  In the last three years, Lewandowski's style has become recognizable.  His talent has been utilized by Bell Witch, False, and Mizmor among others.  You know it when you see it.  The pieces usually involve imposing figures of impossible size that typically illustrate death.  Take Stygian, for example.  It's the debut release by funeral doomsters Atramentus.  It's a killer record that sounds...well, it sounds like it looks!

I don't know if Lewandowski heard a note before putting paint to canvas, but even the colors match the dolorous tones of the music.  Heh, I'm an art critic.
