Nothgard reveal new album title and cover

German melodic death metal bunch Nothgard have revealed the title for their brand new album – “The Sinner’s Sake”. It will be released in September 2016 via NoiseArt Records. “The Sinner’s Sake” is Nothgard’s third studio album, following “Warhorns of Midgard” (2011) and “Age of Pandora” (2014).

For now though, here’s a first look at the cover artwork created by acclaimed Hungarian cover-artist Péter Sallai (Sabaton).

Mastermind Dom Crey states: “We are very happy and proud of the artwork for our upcoming album “The Sinner’s Sake”. The result proves that we took the right decision when we hired the Hungarian cover-artist Péter Sallai once more. Péter worked with big names like Sabaton and also did our predecessor album-artwork for “Age of Pandora”. He is a great guy and an even better artist, always trying to offer the band the maximum of heartblood and passion. And believe me… Probably we were not the easiest clients haha… We hope our fans like the cover as much as we do.”
