Coffinworm is a Black-, Sludge-, Doom-Metal band from Indianapolis, USA, formed in 2007. They have released two full length albums to this day – When All Became None in 2010 and Great Bringer Of Night in 2012.
Great Bringer of Night’s album cover – created by Bryan Proteau – is a classic hand drawn illustration with genre-typical elements: skulls, gravestones, snakes and a cross. What makes the artwork stand out is its iconography due to the minimalistic sujet. The cross obviously is the dominant part of the illustration surrounded by lots of black space and being unseen in its construction.
