The skyline is set ablaze, with regret
Ashes cover a falling, silhouette
The city will reap what it's sown, and ignite
Watching as the city burns, tonight
-- Reclamation, LoG.
Okay, just one more album artwork to do; #6 then I'm all done with these. Just need to work on my vocals and Then I'll be starting Retrograde's character designs, -- (comic series/graphic novel series). I went with a rough look for the front of the album cover and a light bland quality, then the lyric pages, get darker and darker volcanic rock. Leading into this more colorful yet apocalyptic end for Modern man. I try to have most of my albums transition with the art from front cover, lyric pages, to back cover.
P.S. The Mascot's name is: Apotikhia, Gnosis -- Failure, To Know in Greek. And I deleted the individual song submissions and now they can all be read under the lyric pages of the appropriate album numbers.
(Lyric pages found on shadefalcon.deviantart.co m If you want to read them go there. I won't post them on here as most people will just be all tl;dr about it...)
A little bit more background on the mascot and band now. I see I may have to make some things a little bit easier to understand, so as to better comprehend the band's message:
The mascot, is a representation of man's ignorance and hubris-(man's pride)
Essentially, in my belief system, it's a representation of what I believe evil could look like(since I don't believe in an actual devil), and what happens when you die, if you were blind, and blackened to your core. You'll have no real face, no identity, and spiritual despair, never to see anything again. He looks humanoid because, hey, what's more evil than Man? Basically imagine him as evil incarnate,but what if evil was first man, and not some demon or monster that everyone claims? It's more interpretative and contemporary art, and his name means failure to know, because I believe a lot of evil in this world comes from man's unwillingness to accept diversities, and to learn. It's easier to be stupid, and violent then it is to do something useful or to help each other. Thus the band name, representing the things we ignore in the world, that are just wrong, ignorant, and harmful to each other: Defiled Conscience.
