Illustrated with pen/pencil and digitally refined by myself. I will post more progress pictures when I get the chance, but here was my summary to Tom: "It plays on the concept of Earthly chaos and the "perfection process" and end-result(s) birthed from chaos (hence the symbolic diamonds @the stumps of the severed arms I illustrated, gripping each other into formation; It can also be interpreted as an icon of awakening in modern-times of madness and struggle as primitive conquerors within."

Necrite - "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi" + tshirt

(above): 6-panel CD digipak for the highly anticipated full-length. Under my artistic direction and understanding of relevance with the albums concept and "nature". I attempted to visually represent the decaying and cyclic nature of mass in (A) perception of time and space. Cover illustration/pencils by Ven Latimosa and I handled the inking/coloring of said drawing and as well as the layout. To be released on Flenser Records in November 2010.
Necrite's first ever shirt I was also asked to design, thematically travels a similar path as the album artwork. These will be available at the record release show on 11/17/2010 with Watain, Goatwhore, Black Anvil and Pale Chalice as well.
from Blabbermouth.net: 
"After five demos and six years of anticipation, Bay Area black metal tyrants NECRITE will finally unleash their debut full-length, "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi", on November 2 via Flenser Recordings.
Seamlessly fusing elements of droning doom, funeral ambience, and thrashing black metal, "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi" is a monument in the legacy of West Coast black metal along with the likes of WEAKLING's "Dead As Dreams" and LEVIATHAN's "Tenth Sublevel of Suicide". NECRITE has created something very special and very creepy on "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi", brandishing over 66 minutes of horrifying, ambient black metal of the most oppressive and bleak type.

"Sic Transit Gloria Mundi" track listing:
 

01. A Mass for the Harvest of Death (16:04)
02. Bereft of Hope (11:33)
03. Bathing Open Wounds with Shards of Glass (7:55)
04. Sic Transit Gloria Mundi (27:07)
05. Worship the Sunn((O)) (7:33)

NECRITE is a three-piece: Thrull (vocals, guitars, studio bass), Tenspyr (guitar, live bass), and Malick (drums, vocals). Thrull himself recorded "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi" in a basement hole over the course of two and a half years; Thrull, along with Eric Medina, mixed and mastered the album.

Since its debut, NECRITE has shared the stage with acts such as WATAIN, DESTROYER 666, ENTHRONED and more, and has become a well-kept secret in the San Francisco black metal community.

NECRITE has managed to craft some of the most visceral and demonic audio terror around, forgoing traditional song structure and predictability in lieu of a pure unflinching devotion to creating the aural essence of death bathed in a drone of tingly creepiness.
