All Shall Fall – Immortal Album Cover Review – Sarah Clow

I found this cover within a newsletter from Nuclear Blast; I fell in love with the artwork as soon as I saw it. Initially when you look at this cover you see a disfigured face but look more closely and you see two ravens or crows coming out of the image, I find this to be very effective, very dark, and in some ways possibly emotional, this possibly due to the nature of the title of the album. Par Olofsson created the cover design and artwork. Looking at his other designs for other bands, his work is both dark and beautiful, being full of darkness, hatred and death. The band revealed this artwork in July 2009 although the albums release date was not until September. The design works well with the gatefold layout that it was released with, however it still works just as well for a non-gatefold album.
