The new cover artwork was completed by German artist Timo Wuerz, who has previously worked worked with HALLOWEEN and STEEL ASSASSIN."We are five songs in with guitars and Matt has helped us create some amazing guitar tones, as we are pushing for this album to be much heavier sounding without losing our traditional metal sound and dynamics," says POWER THEORY guitarist and founder Bob "BB" Ballinger. "That's where Peter's experience and excellence will be present by making sure we maintain the integrity of our style and stay true to the metal."
