Taking The Head of Goliath are ecstatic to announce that the artwork for their upcoming debut record will be done by the one-and-only Par Olofsson (Miseration – The Mirroring Shadow, Solution .45 – For Aeons Past, Revulsed – Infernal Atrocity).

Par Olofsson is a Swedish Designer/Art Worker. His works can be seen as a Metal album cover (Melodic Death, Technical Death, Brutal Death, Black, Deathcore, Grindcore and Thrash). His style is unique, his fantasy and the combinations of colors make it all work masterful. Check out the sickest portfolio in the game here.

Taking the Head of Goliath, an American Christian Death Metal band originated in the twin cities, Minnesota in the year 2015. What started with Jake Martin, Matt Vangsgard, Nathan Sherman, Rob Blake became best known when they hired Bassist/Backing Vocalist Luke Renno of the band Crimson Thorn. The band signed up with Rottweiler Records when they were featured on the compilation called Kill the Ill a Benefit Compilation for Grave Robber singer and Rottweiler Records founder, Shawn Browning, to raise money for his medical expenses. By the way the compilation is a massive effort to gather 80 bands on to this mother of all Compilations. Do take a moment and check it out.

Starting off with “The Expulsion of Putrid Illusion” which has an array of blast beats with heavy guitar riffing and monster growls which are hard to miss at the opening of the song. The band is very tight and their crisp performance pulverises the grey matter of your head. Continue reading »
