The Fall of an Empire by GENZOMAN The Fall of an Empire by GENZOMAN
The cover for the new Fairyland´s Album "The fall of an empire"... It was an honor for me to do this cover, because I´m a big fan of this epic metal band. It´s based on the concept of Phil Giordana (Keyboards) and the lirycs of the same name song. I try to play whit some codes of my favorite painter, Theodore Géricault. and some noeclasic/romantic colours and athmosphere.

you can know more of this great album (my favorite epic metal album :D)and the band in this site:

Hey man, this is such an amazing piece. I was wondering, could I maybe use this as an album cover of some sort for my band "Behold The Empire"? It fits perfectly the image I want to create with our first album. I totally understand if you don't want me to, and that's completely fine. Let me know sometime!

I discovered the band by that year thanks to this album cover (yeah it sounds shallow of me, being attracted to a musical material through merely its cover but what can I say, the art style took my attention. And that's in a way what marketing is, right?) Followed by me listening to it frequently and being a big fan of their music. I neither knew about the band nor about your artwork untill I stumbled upon the cover on the net (dug the cover artist's name out of the same net). Then I had a new style of image and a new sound in my head.

Long story short, internet is bliss XD (Love the Fairyland covers and your artwork generally btw. Keep it up!)

Wow! I didn't know you did this! I've been a watcher for quite a while, and I really enjoy (and through freakish coincidence was listening to) the title track of this album. I love their album covers and I'm amazed and blown away that you had a part in that! :o)

the great fall of the empire
was not due to enemies fire
rather a kings desire
so cold
and sad
he burns in his hate
ignoring his own fate
to fail

Even though this is a bit old, I think this may be my favorite piece of yours. Maybe it's because it doesn't have the super-sharp highlights you use now, lol, but the amount of detail and stuff going on is just amazing.

I was browsing through your gallery when I saw the thumb of this. And I thought "huh I know this picture!" And yes it is Fairyland's epic cover of their epic album!
My boyfriend is wearing a tour shirt with the cover on it =)
It's fun when you find the artist back on DA.
You did an awesome job!
