Meshuggah’s latest album (released in March 2012) entitled Koloss comes with a fabulous symmetric 3D-cover artwork. I think I don’t have to introduce the mighty Meshuggah again (have a look at an earlier Symmetal post about Meshuggah: Symmetrah) but this new release is worth a new post. I know that Symmetal is all about the visuals but I have to say that I love the new record.
The artwork is named “Gateman” and was created by Luminokaya who spent nine months developing the piece. On Luminokaya’s website the following statement about his work can be found:
“Art-project Luminokaya lab appeared as a result of a huge amount of data coming from the great field of energy and information in forms of light and energy waves, visions, images, dream-state objects, trans personal visions and visions beyond personality, and also symbols, signs and channeling. The vast amount of information offered by The Space didn’t allow to ignore this exciting and rich experience. My input was minimized to pressing the keyboard keys, and the awareness of infinity and abundance of the info-energy continuum can let me speak only about being a channel, or a medium. So, there can’t be any question of authorship.”
“The artwork,” states Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake, “speaks for itself.”
