"Blasphemous" Artwork? Yes, Please!

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

according to what SPIN magazine reported today, one of the artworks included in the Deluxe edition of "Infestissumam" has encountered some problems in the United States, where some manufacturers refused to print the illustration you can see below , as they considered it to be somewhat "sacrilegious" (surprise, surprise...). Therefore the band chose to go for the artwork used in the standard edition in order to avoid any further delay. The copies printed and sold in Europe, fortunately, will still contain the artwork, since the old World clearly had no issues with this fine piece of art.

The artwork - explains the article - is inspired by the work of Gustave Dore and it was made by Polish artist Zbigniew Bielak (whom you might already know for his other works with bands such as Deströyer 666, Watain, and several others) in collaboration with one of the Nameless Ghouls. And, we have to say, it reminds us once again how much we appreciate every aspect of Ghost.
Only eleven days separate us from the swedish release of "Infestissumam" and things keep getting more and more interesting along the way .
