Commented artwork designer Juanjo Castellano: “The inspiration for the cover-artwork of ‘Battle Breed’ came from true old school death metal like Bolt Thrower, Hail Of Bullets and others. War movies also influenced me, as did Bodyfarm’s killer sound of course! To work with Bodyfarm was intense as usual. They are truly committed to the quality of their art so we talked and discussed a lot. But finally, all turned out great!”
