Darkthrone • "Sardonic Wrath"

cover and t-shirt artwork


The cover art for "Sardonic Wrath" at first was conceived to express two meanings: to show in a denotative way one of the main concepts of Black Metal (the hate towards Christianity) and especially to show the superiority of the music played by Darkthrone (the angels) against the mediocrity of their clones (the corpses). This drawing is also a quotation of Gustave Dorè and a dedication to Art history, often forgotten by contemporary artists.

Medium: pencil on paper
