Well, the "AND HELL WILL FOLLOW ME" album is in!!!
I ordered on Friday and received the cd on Tuesday already. Not bad from the US of A to the Technocratic Republic of Europe, new speed record.
Actually it's a digipack and at first glance it looks awesome. Front cover has the (hopefully already) known horse draggin it's dead corpe through a swamp surrounded by crows. Happy to see that it is not fully black and white artwork on the front (nor in the inlay) but it has some greenish hue over it. Y'know, like a dead corpse..
The booklet is of same quality. Great artwork setting the atmosphere with the songs. Some might say that this is not important, well sir, BULLSHIT! It is important. I'm not going to tell too much about the artwork, see it for yourself. Buy the goddamn cd.
Good thing the lyrics are in the booklet. Myself, being a not-native speaker from the Technocratic Republic of Europe, I have to guess sometimes what the artist is elaborating about. Text with songs helps a bit fromt time to time.
Well, the music is great all together as everybody could hear here on this site. But now I have the advantage to put in my stereo and play it in Överdrive.
Knowing that only 1000 copies with autograph have been released I'm happy to have ordered 2 copies. Limited indeed! It must've been a joy for Sal to put a thousand times his autograph on the booklet. Good practice for when he becomes (in)-famous ; )
Bottom line is, there are more reasons to buy it then not to buy it. If you like Type O Negative, if you like good music and you care about the starving artists, than fucking buy this album. Perhaps it will bring some light in the cold lonely Christ days.
