Picking up where the cover for "Extinguish The Weak" left off, BONDED BY BLOOD's mascot, Brutus, faces off with the devil on the cover of the band's Earache debut, "Feed The Beast".
With its dynamic comic book-style artwork, "Feed The Beast"'s cover conveys not only the sense of danger and electricity that is personified in the music, but a deeper meaning is conveyed as well. "The artwork represents my whole view on Los Angeles. It takes you in and spits you back out," says vocalist, Jose "Aladdin" Barrales. "L.A. is like a beast; if you don't do the right 'thing,' you will end up on the streets. I think Tom, the artist, took my interpretation and made it come alive."
