|This was quite specially made to be a cover, when you look at the tombstone in the front thats quite obvious. But otherwise, the pic came out quite general. Im pretty sure it was not 100% what Stench quys were looking for but they approved it anyhow.|
With the tape cover also the latest (and the final so far) version of the Stench of Decay logo saw light of day.

The LP version came out later and it had a different cover than the tape version. This was quite logical as the dimensions with tape and lp are so different - not to mention size!
With Where Death and Decay Reign LP cover I came to understand that I dont necessarily have to draw album cover as a cover - but just draw a cool image and crop it to the right size. Of course I had to think about the layout and positioning of the logos and such but not to get too constricted with the limits, just fill the whole paper and use it the best way it works.
Original Where Death and Decay Reign LP cover is not considerably larger than the actual cover but still a bit larger.
Here is the original artwork:
|This was probably more what the Stench of Decay was after. Less typical Death Metal zombies and more atmospheric scenery.|
And here how the cover turned out:
