What do you think???

It's different, so that's really cool. Just don't like the font for D-A-D. The Monster Philosophy font, is pretty much the same as scare yourself if I'm not much mistaking...

Molly looks scary Smiley but thoughtful! I wonder what she's thinking Smiley

I can't wait for it to be released...less than two months from now. Wuuhuu!

Ok.... I hate myself for saying this, but I have to be honest... I don't like the cover, it's really borring and maybe one of the worst covers from D-A-D.. I'm really sorry, guys, but this is what I feel Smiley-sad sadly!

I can see the point that it's a monster who's philosophying about something! But the songs that I've heard from the album signs "engergy" and I think that's missing here on cover!

The D-A-D logo is also quite borring, it would be much more cool and raw if they used the D-A-D cover from Scare Yourself.. And then in white colour to match the white words "Monster Philosophy".
In my opion it would make much better and raw!

I agree on the part with the D-A-D font, don't really like it. It doesn't look that professional.

And there is something about the picture that just don't seem right. I can see the idea with the "monster", but i think it could be so much better..

I like that they bring the good old Molly back after many years of hiding on the covers (Simpatico, E.G, and the "hard to find" on SD)

The fonts- yes it could be aloot better! this one sucks. But after all I find this okay

thumbs up for the old molly!
thumbs down for the fonts!

I agree with you guys. The picture itself is okay - not super! But it looks like it's just been put onto a plain red background in "Paint" or something like that. The "D-A-D" font is horrible.

Overall, this cover sucks!

Honestly I can't see how we can say it in love?

The cover is bad.
And just because we like the bands music so much (I speak for myself at this point) it doesn't mean that you have to apologize for what you don't like :S I seriously find that really strange :/

I really don't see the problem here. I find the picture great! Maybe with some effects on it would be even greater.

The logo “D-A-D” is quiet simple, which I don’t mind, the only thing I would criticize is that the title is way too small, and the font kind of boring...

I think what it is missing some D-A-D personality.. Except for the old molly cowskull, there is nothing d-a-d'ish.

I think the cover could be better if they changed some things on it, the cowskull statue could be really cool with some changes to the rest of it..

I think the True Believer poster is much better than the cover to Monster Philosophy! The poster gives you the fantastic feeling of D-A-D! The cover is missing that feeling!

i love it, because i know it all has a meening.. and i cant see what it is..but..

There was one who said it needed energy..

when i see it, i think it has a lot of energy.. Molly looks like it is thinking and wondering.. An the clouds looks like it is going crazi in a minut as if it is loading up to become a big storm..

and molly is also loading up, but in a diffrent way.. molly is using its brain, and the weather is using its muscless.. or something...

And there is also some religious about it, because there is a top from a church and a triangle..i dont know what the triangle is a symbol of, but maybe it is the egypt pyramides? or some muslim country/ symbol... and the storm could be the symbol of the 'war' / 'storm' between the east and the west .. muslim vs katholic.. (or something)

I think the picture is one monster philosophi.. ;)

kiss and goodnight...

/hope that it wasnt to booring ...

The more I look at it, the more I love it!! Smiley
Beneath "Philosophy" there is some kind of ingraving in the stone, but I can't really see what it reads... And it looks like a man or a viking on Molly's shoulder...

I'm totally in on this whole interpretation-thing Smiley

Edit: and it really is scary!

I imagine D-A-D standing on a highway with lightnings in the background.. dark background and D-A-D's faces are a bit like monsters, some effects and like Molly here they're philosophying about something..

It really looks like a bad quality bootleg CD....maby its a back-cover hopefully they will pick another one i dont even think it should be on the back.......it reminds me of one of the worst sabbath albums ever "eternal idol"
even though the statue is completely different.
Cant really not unt the finger on why i dont like it.....maybe its to obvious.......usually the monster is more scary if its not to clearly pictured.....
make another symbol of the monster and make it less clear and picture the philosophy part more in front and directly...think it would work out better.

i think the cover is trying to make MOLLY to a statue and by putting a church and a pyramid next to it.. then we should compare Molly with the symbols.. church and pyramids.....religion..

Under the stone , theres a inscription, so molly must be a statue .... Smiley-midget

you mean frankenstine? or in that movie frankinfooter? the guy was named after a hotdog? well, I have seen that movie and he was from another planet - getting back to frankenstine - it's a great book I will read again. I really took a liking to the new cover as soon as I laid eyes on it! molly's thinking deep thoughts which is a good thing and the sky looks troubled and the church on the background means gods watching - it definitely made me ponder while admireing the artwork which is a masterpiece in my opinion! welcome back molly! love those long horns Smiley-wink

Molly is sitting in the position of "Grubleren" (in Danish), which is called The "Thinker" in English. It's a pretty famous statue:

I really like the cover, simple, cool, dark and matches the album title.

Nice to have Molly back, but in a new form, and a very nice touch that she's sitting like 'the thinker' (grubbleren).

Getting kind of depressed reading all these bashing posts my mind wandered:

Am I the only one thinking about how the cover artwork COULD represent the musical style of the album?

If that's the case, I believe we're in for another ROCK album.

Just my thoughts ;)

don't think it looks that bad...

The picture is "turned around" (don't know the word in english but in danish "spejlvendt".. )
The sign says Le Pensevr (backward at the cover)

Here a picture of the original statue.. :

Oh Written you are in truth optimistic! – My opinion is to the cover, that it is not that creative. It is very boring and the style is just bad! I really hope it is a joke or just a sketch to the “right” cover.

I think several of you puts too much in the word "monster" - wanting to depict. d-a-d as monster like/scary, evil ect.
My first thought was cool, but reading the tread made me wonder and be more sceptic. I think the red color might have an influence one some, as it doesn't harmony with the rest of the pict (or the colors).
But I agree the "D-A-D" font could be better, otherwise I think it's great

I had expected a little bit more creativity and it was more "DAD-style". but... as long as the songs is better than the cover, it is okay..

@Tulle: Optimist, right Smiley

I hope the songs will complement the cover on this album. I hope they will be "monsterous", big in sound and great production. Be as hard and heavy as the killer grey color sky is and the lyrics as "philosophic and thought through" as the "Thinker" himself.

I didnt care too much for the SY cover, but the songs were great... Actually I dont think they have made a great cover since "GCEYCT" or "Early Years" (not counting "EG").

I acutally like them bringing Molly back in the "star" role, she has been gone for way too long.

And now we see Molly is a man...oh oh! I thought "she" had a genderswitch after seeing "her" in the swinsuit on HYSF" Smiley-wink
- Above statement is ironic.

But the font for DAD and the red in there makes it look cheap in some way...but I can look past that when the music starts to play...

Im just REAL thankfull they didnt make a cover like the movie poster... There is just too much "Lille Per" and "Uncle Anders" in it... even a bit of "Slap Af Frede".
That might work for the movieposter...if thats what they want to send out as a message for their years together.

The photo used on MS complements the title and a well known piece of art very well.

I have to say, It´s not the most common cover (thank god). One thing, it takes some guts to keep it that clean. It will also work well in small size low res as well as in bigger size as a CD-cover. I like it it´s gutsy...
