Hello! I’m working on music that I plan on releasing this year and I’m beginning to work on some album cover ideas. The name of my music project is The Sound Objective and the album will be called “Hope-Less” (for now). This is not a band, although I will have friends playing or singing on some of the songs. The music is heavy and dark, in a lot of ways, as it is an extension of how I’m personally feeling about the state of this country, and the world for that matter. It’s hard rock with a bit of metal and maybe some blues and progressive/shoegaze/alternative elements.
I like minimalistic designs and that’s what I’m going for here. The raven and its symbolism, I feel, represents the feelings entrenched in the music. In the second version of the cover, I use an illustration of a bird skull.
I would love to get your thoughts on the designs and concept. Thanks!!
