Regarding the cover desing the band share the following comments: "The whole design includes many details connected to the main theme influencing me before and during the process of recording: war and the "cold crisis" around us today... There are also links to couple of famous movie series, which influence the generations and erupt with violence, hate and "imperial tendencies"... Is this just a fantasy or maybe a sign of the 21st century generation ? You have to answer that in Your own... and the future will show us , how real that feeling is?"
