Rad Artist Comes Out Of Retirement For Hirax Cover

Lawvere's work

That’s right, people folk.

Philip Lawvere, the revered artist behind such classic album covers as Kreator’s Pleasure To Kill and Celtic Frost’s Emperor’s Return, has come out of retirement.

Why? Hirax needs him.

Lawvere will design the as-yet-untitled new Hirax LP, which is scheduled for a spring 2013 release.

Lawvere had done stunning illustrations for numerous albums and is best known for a slew of thrash metal offerings released on Noise Records.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Philip Lawvere illustrating the cover of our new album. After getting Bill Metoyer to produce it, this is truly the icing on the thrash metal cake!,” says Hirax frontman Katon W. De Pena.

Katon actually was one of the dudes who wrote a guest column for us, which you can read here in case you missed it.
