L.A.M.B : Violence of tha Lambz
« on: December 02, 2013, 07:01:08 AM »
MC Sccit of supergroup L.A.M.B asked me to do the record cover for their upcoming album: Violence of tha Lambz.
I asked him what his budget was and what he was looking for.
His only requirements was that it would be something memorable, violent and surreal.
After some back and forth with ideas that didn't really work this is what the cover will look like.



It might have blown his budget but in my opinion he couldn't have gotten a better bang for his buck (no homo).
Hope you all like it and will go cop the album when it drops.

Peace from Dayton.

I think you fail to see the violent symbolism and subtle brutality in the image.
This is sophisticated horrorcore design blood.
Perhaps hard to see for someone with a Peanut cartoon as their avatar.
Hope you will still cop the album when it drops.

The only problem is horrorcore rap and sophistication don't go hand in hand, you don't want to alienate potential fans.

You are skilled though.

I think that kind of narrow minded mentality is what limits creativity and creative expression.
But you might be right maybe the world ain't ready for an avante garde horrorcore rap album cover design (A.G.H.R.A.C.D) and the genius of it will pass them by.
Considering potential fans is the creative equivalent of political correctness.

Thank you for the compliment, I appreciated that.

No problem, and don't let that observation mislead you about my intentions. I am a life long fan of horror, whether in film, music, physical art, and literature.

The possibilities horrorcore rap has in front of it as a genre leaves so many possibilities. Maybe one day there will be an artist that touches on themes of supernatural or existential horror in a manner that hasn't been seen before. LAMB, hasn't strayed far from the typical slash and kill lane that dominates a lot of the genre. It was simply my observation that the type of music they create doesn't call for anything too high concept in the way of cover art, as their type of music (that they've presented so far) will appeal to a niche community that doesn't typically go too far outside the box.

Not really feeling it as far as the "Violence of the Lambs" theme, but it's pretty dope in its own respect. You've definitely got creative skill.

To be honest I have not listened to a full song of L.A.M.B's music before so I have no idea what they are all about. (I am neither joking or lying here).
Perhaps I should have listened to some tracks before preparing the cover.
So you might be quite right that there is a mismatch between the A.G.H.R.A.C.D and the musical standard.

I could never really relate to horror in movies or music myself, I am more of a romantic type of fellow.
Whitney Houston and Frederic Chopin does it for me. And a movie with Julia Roberts is my idea of a good time.

Since a few people feel this cover does not fit the music perhaps I should post some of the other drafts I prepared?
That way you can see which one you like the best.

actually, there are some occult, cultivated horror themed tracks on the way


i appreciate the artistic sophistication that went into this cover, i just think the lamb looks like a fag

Sounds good to me. But if the one on top here gets the most votes then thats the one you have to use. :)
Will post the other versions later tonight or tomorrow.
