War of Ages Keep It Consistent With Album Art
Hamp was speaking of 'Pride of the Wicked', the band's second full-length and the first album that had Quiggle's artwork in that style. Since then, the Eerie, Penn. band has released three more albums with this similar artistic pattern -- including the re-recording of their first album. Their latest, 'Eternal', reached the 197th position on the Billboard Top 200 charts, and Noisecreep premiered the video for 'Collapse,' their first for this release.
War of Ages' album art follows closely to the lyrical themes of the albums. To wit, "'Arise and Conquer' was just straight, balls-to-the-wall pissed" album lyrically, and "that's why you feel like you're slaying a dragon with a flag," Hamp said.
"['Eternal's'] album cover is a very close up face of a warrior that's just got blood, sweat, tired look, scars, helmet, battle gear, just real close up, real detailed," Hamp said of their new release. "Basically he's just looking forward at the next battle, the next fight, and even though he's tired he's like, 'What's next?' And that's kind of what this album deals with."
War of Ages are currently promoting 'Eternal' on tour with As I Lay Dying and Underoath.
