"Next up was the album cover artwork. It had already been decided that the main color for the album was going to be black. Not wanting to feature the classic Baphomet illustration on the front as first intended, a single monstrous goat like face was glued together from a collage of eyes, a nose and a mouth cut out from several horror comic magazines. Liberal amounts of tipex and black ink was used for masking and adding a few details such as the torso, fur, elongated ears and horns...[the] working title for the debut album was Pentagrammaton, but this working title was discarded when several people read it out as Pentagon. The pentagram was moved to the back of the album cover and replaced with a monster face made up from several bits cut out from various horror comics."
Well, we all know by now that it was no horror comic collage at all but, in fact, the original creation of American illustrator Joseph Smith, who teaches art and design at the acclaimed Pratt Institute to this very day. The illustration in question was swiped from page 81 in Erica Jong's beloved coffee table book Witches, published in 1981. Behold:
The Bathory site was made by Bathory/Quorthon, he constructed the site, he updated the site he wrote the site. He did have full controll over it and full reponse for it, it was his site and his souvereignty over it. We are a label without any permission to enter other artists site for changes! Nevermind if they`re living or not living any longer. You guys have to accept that the constructer of the site is dead and the site comes to be for all time as the artist Quorthon left it. As said we`re a label, Quorthon Bathory surely was the greatest artist we had but we did not own him for that and his artistical freedom was his own only. Please respect that. Please feel free to update other sides or your own side if you think the credits you are missing are such important for todays heavy metal world and their listeners.
All the best wishes,
