A battle of epic proportions was waged here on the pages of Dying Scene. Deadlines were extended. Record numbers of votes were tallied (and re-tallied). But in the end, there could be only one winner in our first annual Cover Art of the Year Battle. And that winner is…MonstrO!
After thousands of votes received, the four-piece Georgia band scored a hard-fought victory for the album artwork from their self-titled Vagrant Records debut, besting runner-up Larry And His Flask by a total of SIX VOTES!
The artwork itself is an original painting by Charlotte, North Carolina’s own Kelly Keith. Click here to check out some more of her rad artwork. To learn more about MonstrO, visit their official page and “Like” them on facebook. While you’re at it, pick up your very own copy of MonstrO on iTunes or Amazon. Congratulations fellas (and Kelly)!
