MISSION IN BLACK: Coverart for "Oceans of Blood."

Added 14 June 2019, 11:12 AM

MISSION IN BLACK was certainly one of the most interesting newcomers last year, the album "Anthems of a Dying Breed" got very good reviews  in the trade press and gave the band support acts for e.g. Brainstorm, Mob Rules, Undertow, Majesty or the Nitrogods! Now, they are following up with a lover's piece for their fans:

"Oceans of Blood" will be released as a 7 "vinyl single in classic black and limited in transparent red and was sung by new singer Steffi Stuber.
The single is only available on live concerts and in the shop at

"The full text and accompanying video is dedicated to the marine conservation organization Sea Shepherd, which is committed to protecting the oceans and waters worldwide." emphasizes drummer and bandleader Andy Black and is therefore a matter of the heart of the band. Manfred Smietana is responsible for the artwork, who also designed the cover of the last CD.

"Again, a very cool work by Manfred Smietana, who has implemented here perfectly, what Steffi and I had on the topic of Oceans of Blood in mind.
Personally, I consider it one of Manne's most successful works: he has managed to combine beauty and gloom perfectly in a very realistic artwork
and gives the viewer plenty of room to think while listening to the song. The whale flu here symbolizes all life in the ocean - whether
Microorganisms or even the greatest of all mammals - they all have one thing in common: Man is inexorably causing their extinction - in the cover
captured very well and symbolized by the darkness and of course the blood-red ocean … "continues the drummer.

"As B-side we chose one of our hardest and fastest songs:" Judgment Day "- here Steffi can really go full throttle and let her" dark "side out -
  live also a track that belongs to Steffis Faves and then makes me sweat a bit too "
