“Visual Violence: Brent Eyestone” artist feature (Decibel Magazine)

The fine people at Decibel Magazine recently invited Magic Bullet Records’ Brent Eyestone to pen a guest article about his inspirations and influences surrounding the illustration work that became the cover of the IRON REAGAN Worse Than Dead album.

In the piece, Eyestone walks through 5 unique albums from punk and metal’s past that can be seen as having some sort of historical bearing on what ultimately was produced in the final version of the Worse Than Dead cover. Artwork from all albums supplements the piece, along with songs from each album.

To read the article, please swing by the Decibel Magazine website and enjoy:
