To begin the first thing that is noticeable in this album cover is the guitar with a gun morphed into it. The colour of this object is black which is very distinctive as an object that can harm and cause danger and pain. The colour black represents death and mystery this links to the object as these are the two main characteristics of this object.
The object can leave many unanswered questions that the audience may be asking themselves and wondering for example they may ask themselves what has the guitar got to do with death and evilness therefore this is effected as the audience will look at this album cover more than once as it catches there attention.
The gun framed in the middle of the album cover is an AK47. It is a weapon that was used in the war to fight and kill. They could of used this imagery to create a metaphor for the type of songs that are in this album as the songs may be very upsetting to sing about.
The guitar could symbolise strength and happiness as for some people when the play a guitar they are in there element and feel happy however this juxtaposes the gun.
The background to this album cover is grey this symbolises dullness or a loss, therefore this could be why there is a gun in the album art as they may of been someone in the singers life who is not with them anymore and thats why they chose the background to be in the colour grey.
