When we started to think about the art for Follow the Reaper, we wanted to have something different. We were advised to contact a Finnish artist named Sami Saramaki, We knew we wanted to have it blue. And we will stick with the reaper. Sami heard us and went and did some photos at lake Bodom. “It was a beautiful summer morning, but foggy and very spooky, definitely didn’t consider camping there…” Sami recalls.
So we had the reaper and the lake again. Then we decided to add some tombstones in the mix. Sami had photographed some tombstones and he added them in the photo.
Follow the Reaper was the first of our covers that we did in a dialogue with the artist and did some editing on the way. We wanted to give this image its own Legacy-shirt.
Legacy t-shirt in 100% organic cotton. Limited to 300 pieces, all numbered, each shirt has small sleeve patch cut from the Follow The Reaper backdrop, the one we used when touring. Each shirt comes with an authenticity letter signed by Jaska, Henkka and Janne.
In certain cultures, when warriors were buried with their swords, the swords were melted and forged into circles. By doing so the community secured the precious piece of metal; it would be worthless for the possible tomb raiders.
