Winds of Plague, 'The Great Stone War' -- Album Art of the Week
The concept of the confrontation between two side of a war was going to span more of the release's layout. "This was to be the centerpiece in a 3-booklet," Oloffson went into further detail "And as the 3 pages open up on each side is reveals more of each sides army. After working a couple of days it was decided to extend the booklet to 5 page so 2 more pages was added on each side. With a total of 5 pages of good and evil armies swinging swords and slobbering the amount of work was huge!"
Oloffson's grandiose, bold, and colorful strokes worked well for the band's brand of symphonically-laced brand of deathcore. The previous cover, for the album 'Decimate the Weak', featured an otherwordly samurai brandishing bloody katana blades and standing on a pile of his victim's corpses. Oloffson's tendency towards the fantastic and fantasy-based worked well with the concept outlined in the album's lyrics, as a clash between two groups: the religious and the demonic.
Oloffson has a broad portfolio of art for metal bands, ranging from The Faceless, Braindrill, Dethroned, and Severed Savior, as well as clienteles like websites and publications.
