We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

This would actually rock. Not that I believe it would turn out as something really worth making it an album art, but always worth a try!

That would suck. :P

But I like the idea in general. As said before, it the result isn't what hoped for, the idea can always be canned. But I'd love to contribute in my way. And if it's not for cover art, perhaps something for booklet/inlay.

I like that idea a lot. A mosaic of sorts of a bunch of fan submitted images. All forming a new MaSu cover. Esp that of a Trinity Logo.

I have this idea to "crowdsource" the album art this time... But I don't know whether or not it is a good idea.

Make it like an artwork made by many many people (though curated/fused+edited by me)...



Thoughts? :)

I've lurked here for ages and decided to finally join up to respond to this, but I've been listening to you guys for a few years now (and a lot when I'm drawing) so I'm totally 100% behind this idea as I think it'd be rad to contribute to :D

Thanks dude :D (for the welcome -and- checking out my stuff). I just felt really compelled to kind of jump in finally to give my 2 cents on the whole album art idea, since its a radical one.

Great idea, get the pics together so they would make a portray of the band. :)

Or, what is the theme of the new album? Is there something special like there was at AWftEotW?

Hard to say what the theme is at this point... I'll have to get back to you on that.


It's my job to keep SID elite.

We've borrowed the Neumann mic from Bodom again, the one we've used on Overworld and A View... (but not on "Paparazzi", and I think it shows, vocals just don't sound as good)

Aww, I like the vocals on Paparazzi...

Though you're right, they are not quite as clear. That said, they suit the music that way, so, *shrugs*.
Your approval fills me with shame.

Personally, although I do like the idea of a fan-outsourced album artwork, Id rather love to have another awesomely-edited female face XD Its kinda special to me that every album has the same kind of artwork that binds them all together. Id be a little disappointed if i looked at my Machinae album collection and they all had awesome cyber future kinda epic faces except one...

Maybe instead of the artwork, you could outsource the album name, like you did for Deus Ex Machinae? That would still be awesome

Ill be ordering it...so try and have it pre-cracked this time! mine came in pristine condition from ze Finlandz shop and I had to sit on the case myself!...no...noone?

OT: Definitely looking forward to it, the amount of people I have converted to MaSu fans from my own discovery is more than i can count on my fingers, double, maybe even triple :D

Let May 17th be known as the day we made something like half our next album. #masu

How about now?
