Full album art for metal band. Artwork done for the album “Ilion” by the Swiss metal band Akroasis. This is their debut, a concept album about the events surrounding the Trojan War and the return to home of Odysseus. The band presents an interesting mix of genres that move between thrash metal, melodic death metal, progressive metal … More info about the band in their website.
Our artist Mayte CG created the full album art. Her work includes the panoramic illustration for the front & back artwork, the art for the cd and the tray, the digipak inner panel and the 16 pages booklet design. In addition, she has made a lyric video for the song “Scylla and Charybdis” as well. We will post it here as soon as possible as well.
The album main art covers both front and back cover with a single illustration. It features the moment of Ulysses’ journey in which he faces Scylla and Charbydis in the Strait of Messina. The hero is forced to choose between the two evil creatures that control the passage through the strait.
The album has been released on digipak. As mentioned before, Mayte CG created all the design and layout for the digipak. In addition to the cover, she also created illustrations for the inside panel of the digipak, as well as for the disc and the image under the CD tray. These last two illustrations actually form two parts of the same concept and when we take the cd we discover Charybdis behind the disk. A little visual game that plays on the idea that Charybdis is really a hidden creature that causes the terrible vortex by which it is normally recognized. She has also designed and laid out the 16-page booklet.
