LANDMINE MARATHON Unveil Cover Art of "Sovereign Descent"
Phoenix, Arizona's LANDMINE MARATHON have unveiled the cover art of their forthcoming record "Sovereign Descent," due out March 16, 2010 on PROSTHETIC RECORDS. The cover art was handled by acclaimed artist Dan Seagrave, who's done covers for acts such as Entombed, Dismember, Morbid Angel, Suffocation and many more.
Bassist Matt Martinez commented on the cover and working with Seagrave; "The artwork Dan Seagrave created is nothing short of amazing, and, in our biased opinion, some of his best work to date. We are extremely excited and honored to have been able to work with him."
Pre-order is now available through the PROSTHETIC webshop. The CD can be pre-ordered for $10, a CD and T shirt bundle for $20 and a CD and long sleeve shirt bundle for $25.

"Sovereign Descent" was recorded at guitarist Ryan Butler's Arcane Digital Recording Studios, where he's recorded past efforts from the band, as well as Misery Index, Phobia, The Funeral Pyre and many more. The album was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Converge, Hatebreed, Dillinger Escape Plan).
Martinez continued about the recording; "We are beyond stoked and anxiously awaiting the release of 'Sovereign Descent.' We feel this is our strongest material to date, both in writing and in performance. We cannot wait for fans new and old to hear this album and see the songs performed live on the road."
Landmine Marathon, whose sound has been compared to early Earache acts such as Bolt Thrower, Carcass, and Napalm Death, released two full lengths on Level Plane, "Wounded" and "Rusted Eyes Awake," the latter which was reissued in late 2009 by Prosthetic Records and several split releases. Vocalist Grace Perry was recently featured on the cover of Revolver Magazine and is a frequent contributor to their blog. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Tragedy, Kylesa, Saviours, Book of Black Earth, Coliseum and many more.
