German thrashers DEW-SCENTED have unveiled the cover artwork for their new album, "Invocation", due on May 24 in Europe via Metal Blade Records and May 25 in North America through Prosthetic Records. The artwork was created by Björn Goosses of Killustrations and can be viewed below.
Commented vocalist Leif Jensen: "We were lucky to work with Björn again and he did an amazing job on this one, nailing down an apocalyptic artwork that fits perfectly to our style as well as the concept/vibe of 'Invocation'. Total thrash!
"We have been working with Killustrations non-stop for all our albums and merchandising matters since 2003's release, 'Impact', and are once more very proud of the final results!"
