Octanic – The Mask of Hypocrisy album art

Octanic is an amazing metal band from Adelaide, South Australia. Octanic plays, as they describe, Melodic Death Metal with epic Cyber Industrial tinges. I was privileged to design their new logo in 2014 of which I’m extremely pleased. So was the band and they asked me to re-design the album artwork for their debut release “The Mask of Hypocrisy” mixed by the legendary producer Roy Z and mastered by Andy Horn.

More from their website:

Australian 6-piece metal band OCTANIC seamlessly fuse together elements of hard rock, melodic death and modern metal, laced with classical undertones. This unique combination gives OCTANIC the aggressiveness, punch and intensity of metal with the melodic and epic soundscapes of a movie score, engaging audiences everywhere and endearing OCTANIC to both national and international music fans alike.

OCTANIC’s captivating stage presence delivers a truly energetic and charismatic live performance that has seen them headline and co-ordinate major Metal events throughout Australia. They have performed with numerous major national and international acts including Finntroll (Finland), Korpiklaani (Finland), Hanzel und Gretyl (US), Combichrist (Norway/US) Paul Di’Anno and Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden) and Tim RIPPER Owens (Judas Priest/Iced Earth), placing OCTANIC amongst the big guns of Australian metal.

OCTANIC have recently signed with the Internationally recognised UK based, Metal Music Bookings & Management Agency and their newly formed record company INTO Records who will be releasing OCTANIC’s new album “The Mask Of Hypocrisy” mixed by the legendary producer Roy Z and mastered by Andy Horn ready for a worldwide release in November 2015.
