Coliseum is a Hardcore band from Louisville, USA, formed in 2003. They’ve released three full length albums (Coliseum in 2004, No Salvation in 2007 and House with a Curse in 2010). The cover depicted above is taken from one of their three EPs – Goddamage, released in 2005 via Auxiliary Records.

Coliseum Goddamage Re-Release

Goddamage’s cover artwork reminds me of the artworks of Black Haven with its black and yellow color coding, the iconic screen printed motifs and a love for big skulls. This cover not only features a big skull as central element but also skull headed bikers and a dead girl holding another one. The EP has been re-released as a deluxe LP edition (see picture on the left) with additional live tracks and all three tracks from their 2005 split EP with Doomriders. Packaged in a metallic gold triple-gatefold jacket that spreads out to a whopping 3 feet in length. You can buy it over here.
