I remember they had an interview with slayer and metalion ask the similar sieg heil question, the band just thought the robot looked cool or something along those lines.

Weird and Dark cover art, just like the music of the record. Love it. Don't know shit about it but it just look like some SF fantasy stuff, like tons of fantasy art from the 70's. The vision of an artist I guess...

I dont like the cover too, because it is very misleading. You dont expect this great death doom from such a cover. That Robotman looks like Bobafet to me, but this would make it even more weird.

The cover of Gothic is muc better.

Far into the future even the robots will attempt to draw down the moon. ...all mystic and arcane like with circles and triangles.

I remember reading something about this cover many years ago. It's supposed to represent a 'fallen angel' or something like that. My memory fails me at this time but there was a mention why a robot was used, something to do with religion/politics and brainwashing. Best thing to do is to email the band or register on their forum and ask there.

I seem to recall something similar about a fallen angel in hell?

An excerpt from the Slayer magazine interview (Vol. 8, published 1990) with Nick Holmes:

"...Actually the painting is taken from a series of books, "Paradise Lost" that Duncan (Fegredo) has done paintings for. But it got nothing at all to do with nazis!! ...It's Satan rising from the flames to conquer a world of pain & misery!"

+1, although I think the cover is a bit nonsensical considering the music. Sure its cool looking, but I just don't understand how it fits in with the context of the band... Anyhow, that is hardly a complaint, Lost Paradise crushes.

Yep, I must be one of the few who thinks that the cover suits the album too. More satanic robots on album covers! RRR÷÷÷AAARRR!!!

I've also read about that Gothic front cover, and it seems like the band tried to blurry an image of the Virgin Mary in mourning to achieve that weeping eyesight feel or something like that, I may be wrong though. And my grammar may be, too.


the cover of Gothic is an upsidedown detail of the band photo on the inside sleeve
