Haunting music artwork by Russel Mills

russel-mills-intro

At Bleaq I can blog about almost all the things I like: art, photography, books, visiting museums and even my love for decayed buildings and how wonderfully some photographers are able to capture those haunting places on film. There’s one thing I really love that I don’t write about though: music. It’s really hard to fit a certain genre of music into Bleaq’s vision, and since I have quite a diverse taste in music I think it’s better to keep it this way. I found a loophole last week though, when I listened to the latest release of a band I really love: Nine Inch Nails. One of the things that always excites me about a new NIN release is the artwork. NIN has been collaborating with artist Russel Mills for years now, and he always delivers the most perfect artwork for the dark tunes of the band. Hope you enjoy this little collection of Russel’s work I got for you today: you’ll find some NIN work, but also some independent pieces. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading! If these dark images got you in the mood for some haunting tunes: the new Nine Inch Nails album ‘Hestitation Marks’ is out now and worth a listen!

    • Sterker nog, ik had Hesitation Marks al via iTunes gekocht maar vrees dat ik hem vanwege het geweldige artwork nog maar een keer ‘offline’ ga aanschaffen… All is fair in love and art :D

      • Volgens mij kan je dan zelfs diverse keren je portemonnee trekken: als ik de Tumblr post die ik laatst tweette goed gelezen heb heeft iedere versie een ander ontwerp. Dus digipack, jewelcase én LP dan maar! ;)
