Midvinterblot by Carl Larsson, showing the sacrifice of King Domalde.

If you were in Brighton, England today, you could celebrate Burning the Clocks.

    This picture served as the cover for the live Blood Axis album, way better than their ‘Gospel of Inhumanity’ in my opinion.

    Oh, I didn’t know that but it figures.

    Larsson was a great artist with a superb sense of composition. I’ve got a book of his work but it doesn’t include this one, unfortunately.

    yeah, if one can get past the neo-nazi fans, they along with Death in June have put out some good albums with some interesting art.
