American Death Metal pioneers, Obituary, recently announced the upcoming release of their new album, "Dying Of Everything."

The record's sleeve artwork was painted by Polish master painter, Mariusz Lewandowski (1960-2022). Exclusively for And Justice For Art, the estate of the late master artist (1960-2022) has revealed the complete panoramic artwork which can be seem in its entirety in the physical editions of the album (LP, CD). The original oil on canvas painting measures 120 x 60 Centimeters. See it below.

"The piece visible on new Obituary album was made specifically for this band on request and Mariusz called this piece as 'Procession Of Evil,' reveals the painter's son, Marcin Lewandowski. This image belongs to a group of works that feature otherworldly landscapes inhabited by multitudes of bodies and imposing structures. In our interview with Lewandowski for the book "And Justice For Art, Volume 3" he explained that these kind of visions were the result of his attraction "to huge spaces, unreal, foreign places that show the inevitability of human existence. However, I am not a follower of apocalyptic visions. I do not believe in the irrational promise of prolonging life after death, which is why I enjoy what I have here and now."
Obituary's "Dying Of Everything" will be released on January 13, 2023 via Relapse Records and can be pre-ordered on this location.
