Inhuman Condition (Obituary, The Absence) Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Rat God”

Inhuman Condition, the band featuring Terry Butler (Obituary), Jeramie Kling (The Absence), and Taylor Nordberg (The Absence), have revealed the cover art for their new album “Rat God.” The artwork was created by Dan Goldsworthy, who had the following to say about it:

“This project was a huge honor and pleasure to be a part of. Having been a huge fan of Floridian death metal for the better part of 3 decades, I can’t begin to express how all the guys involved in this album have influenced my own musical and artistic journey (“Leprosy” and “Spiritual Healing” are two of my favorite album covers of all time), so when Jeramie asked me to be on board I jumped at the chance! Regarding the cover itself, the band already had a fairly strong idea of the main concept we were going to go for, but gave me the creative control to proceed with my interpretation. Whilst there is a slightly deeper figurative meaning behind the art, in a literal sense I see the main character existing somewhere between Norman Bates and the Picture of Dorian Grey. As far as I’m concerned you can’t beat the thrash/death metal album art of the late 80s/early 90s, but hopefully this cover does the legacy of that era justice!”
