Countdown to Armageddon / Duesenjaeger split EP

This was another project for my band Countdown to Armageddon, for a split 7″ vinyl record with our friends in Duesenjaeger from Osnabrück, Germany.  Duesenjaeger has a similar aesthetic to us, and when we began the project to do the split they requested that I do the artwork. Creating an aesthetic that worked for both bands’ sound, I took a field trip to Fort Ward on Bainbridge Island, WA. Fort Ward is an abandoned military munitions fort, and I liked the contrasts between the overtaking of nature and what was essentially a stockpile house for guns and bombs. I chose four pictures for the layouts which you can see below.

The Duesenjaeger song on this release is titled “Fass Ohne Boden,” which translates to “Bottomless Pit” in English. Amazingly I found one to shoot at the site, which made the design process all the more involved. I really like being able to take a concept and translate it visually and spatially in a project like this.
