A few months ago, Otto Cate, composer and cofounder of the band Damage Vault with Kevin Riepl for which I already worked, asked me to be part of a special project.
I had to create the artworks for an upcoming record whose sale would finance the Sweet Relief fund.
Since the album is now available, let me show you what I’ve done to illustrate this great record and detail the impressive list of video game composers (Call of Duty®, Dead Space™, Dragon Age™, God of War®, Mass Effect™, Medal of Honor™, Prince of Persia®, World of Warcraft®) who contributed to it.
Please note that Novum Initium” is available for digital download via Bandcamp, CDBaby.com, Amazon MP3, iTunes, 7digital. And a twenty limited edition CDs of the album will also be signed by the composers and auctioned for sale on eBay.
