Brazil based Prog/power metal act Caravellus have just released the cover artwork of their new studio album “Inter Mundos.” The album will be released in the first half of 2021 by Rockshots Records (worldwide) and Metal Relics (Brazil) and will be their first in more than 10 years. Additional details coming soon.
Guitarist Glauber Oliveira explains the artwork idea: “Inter Mundos is a special album. It is an organic and visceral work, with an unprecedented conceptual story. Progressive metal and Brazilian music are connected. I didn’t want art cover was something with manipulated images. This album asked for an old-fashioned cover. Ravelli is a genius of Brazilian illustration, as well as a great friend. He plunged headlong into the concept and my idea of honoring the Paraiban writer by birth from the heart of Pernambuco, Ariano Suassuna. Art started on paper, with paints and brushes. Ravelli, literally, gave color and visual reference to Inter Mundos. The result was incredible.”
The artist Marcus Ravelli talks about how it was to draw “Inter Mundos“: “Inter Mundos is a unique work, done with extreme commitment and competence, a real pride for the national metal. I was able to witness how much effort was put into making it sound perfect, in every way. Glauber came to travel to the place, which is far away as hell, to seek more inspiration and to dive further into the cultural imagery of the region. Excellent and creative musicians and compositions that took care to express in each note the mythical atmosphere and the unique cultural identity that surrounds the theme. So is this incredible job. I am very proud to participate with my art in this masterpiece of Brazilian metal.“
