We dive into Black Tusk’s home away from home, their metalworking and carpentry combo studio, in the new Decibel x Converse video collaboration.
Of the many reasons I’m always excited to work with Black Tusk a bunch of them are captured here in this video. When I hear artist or bands complain about why something isn’t happening for them because of the powers that be I tend to cringe. The only power that is holding those who complain about it really is themselves. I find if you assess your goals, take hold of your art, interests and life for that matter shit will get done. Kinda like what Black Tusk shows here. TCBT!
Metal Alliance wrap up. Thick as Thieves print series wrap up. Inter Arma drawings. Lamb of God drawings. Saint Vitus drawings. A monster Black Tusk print at the 11th hour. Plus several other band and non-band artwork. A FULL PULL to say the least.
Fit For An Autopsy Track Premiere and Artwork Reveal
You can hear the new track “Still We Destroy” over at Metalsucks.com off of their upcoming “Hellbound” album for which I did the artwork. There’s a link for pre-sales and packages at indiemerch.com. It looks like they just laid the cover artwork over a cd template for pre-sales but the album artwork is laid out correctly on the final product. I had a great time working with FFAA and the Eone team on this release. I also had an assist with my brother Kevin Mercer (large mammal.com) with some of the heavy lifting with the layout. All that being said the record is pummeling. Not for the faint of heart. Cheers ya’ll.
