mictronSend mictron a message :   i think this is cool. why does everything have to be so related to the subject? this totally works. plus, the shadow thingy reminds of the gatchaman phoenix...oh god, i'm such a nerd...   2006-02-09 20:44:10
tom1979Send tom1979 a message :   Yeah, this poster is great. The silver crosses and the bird shadow equal creepy evil.   2006-02-09 20:39:16
Pat. James LongoSend Pat. James Longo a message :   I got to hang with these guys before a show because of a mutual friend and I have to tell you, meeting them you are amazed that they then get on stage and unleash hell right before your eyes and to the joy of your ears. They are almost meek when you meet them and then all of a sudden... So I felt the use of Damien and his dark side was perfect. The other posters are great but this one has the most impact because it is subtle. Excellent poster.   2006-02-01 09:06:31

raindog138Send raindog138 a message :   well. this has my vote for best hof poster. i have my reasons.
this one WOWED (its a word right?)me the most.
extremely moving image - if you've seen the movie or not - and the muted colors just sell it for me. this is what i like in a poster. period.

Travis WhiteSend Travis White a message :   i think this would be the best alkaline trio poster ever made. i think this is a high on fire poster that is better than 98% of the people on here could do. maybe not SPOT on for what i picture for hof, but i said "oh my fuxx" when i saw it.   2006-01-26 22:59:55

it's awesome that there is no red used.

slaterSend slater a message :   right or wrong I did think the image fit the band when I was finished with it. I was trying to relate the title of hof's new album back to the omen but maybe it's not so much the concept but more how the image is arranged that isn't working for some of you guys?
It's always good to listen to honest responses from the people who know the band best though.

philaarts.comSend philaarts.com a message :   i agree with maxflo. and myself. i know for one thing todd takes the bands very seriously when he does a poster.
im sure he has hits and misses, but they arent by lack of trying. he is a perfectionist.

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   It's the same old argument. I'm not gonna get into it again.
It's a very nice art print. I never called Todd's skills into question. I called his judgement into question.
Is it for the band or is it for the collectors?

bdixSend bdix a message :   I dig the concept. I think I'd dig it even more if there was no "omen" figure, and instead one of the soldier crosses made the black wings shadow. Forgotten battles 'n shit. It would've put more emphasis on the shadow and the dead warriors.
Still, clean fucking design as always Todd.

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   It's a great poster, like all of Todd's posters. I don't think it is totaly off base for HOF either, but not exactly spot on. It's a lot closer than most HOF posters on this site that's for sure.   2006-01-26 11:27:54

perkinsSend perkins a message :   I like this.
In response to Richie: I think there are a LOT of recent HOF posters that don't particularly fit the band, including those by some of GP's best artists. But I also think it's a great series. Certain artists were obviously picked not necessarily because they're big HOF fans, but because they they do great work. I admire how they (Todd, Jay Ryan & others) refrained from the usual viking skull imagery & got more creative, interpreting the band wiith their own unique styles. I dunno, this series is different somehow...imagery you don't expect for a HOF poster, yet it still works for me. This one's especially cold & creepy. And yeah, that split fountain is smooth.
