mmm typography, power points to those who can read the text within "Techno Voodoo"
The problem with that is that it shouldn't be "power points" to those who can decipher it, it should have readability regardless. If you want to have your text masking smaller text, I'd recommend getting a heavier weight typeface. Also, warping the type like that will usually mess up most of the qualities that the designer of said typeface intended to be present in their design, so unless you're trying to do something with perspective, or as one of my instructors has told me, a Burger King ad, try to keep the text warping to a minimum. Not to mention, the readability of "techno voodoo" is also a bit challenging.
As for the illustration sitting above the text, the face seems a bit flat, especially on the right, and the hair seems a bit careless. I like what you've got going on with the contrast between the dark face and the bright blue lines, but the face is too dark to see against the dark background. Also, is the dark background a gradient? Stop that.
