Demonoid -Album Cover
« on: March 11, 2005, 06:05:01 am »
┬┤loooo everyone!

Hey, I was looking at the cover of Riders of The Apocalypse.

There are 4 horses (same that Apocalypse 6 says) but only 3 riders. I wonder if this was done with a special meaning or something. Or am I blind and you all can see all 4 riders?

A friend has stated that a shape can be seen after the 1rst rider, but I see noone.

I've attached a photo.

Looking at my copy of the cover art, I can see a faded outline of the 4th rider...he's there, just isn't very visible


behold the 4 riders...War, Plague, Starvation, and Death! \m/ ;)

H!

But that's like really far away! You can hardly tell. It could just be any cloud. Isn't the 1st horse one who had the power to win and defeat (white horsy)?

That's nothing!  Open it up and on the inside of the front cover one of the Horsemen is...  NAKED!!  :o

Yes, the one with the scythe (must be ol' Death himself), has lost his cape and is standing there in just his bones.  As fleshless as the day he was unborn.  The others are all looking on, like a bunch of perverts!    :huh:

Hey, it's great artwork though!  I think the whole booklet is very cool!

Heya Sirius!

I cannot watch the inside of the booklet since I have it in mp3  :(  Lucky you.

So, inside the booklet you have 4 riders but on the outside only 3? or still only 3 on the inside?
 I still see only 3 riders  :wacko:

I don't think the Horsemen are featured on these pages...because according the story, the first few songs are about mankind's wrong doings...then some humans decide to evoke the 4 Horsemen to rid mankind of the Earth.  Also, the horse featured on the 14th Century Plague page looks like a real living horse, not the skeletal horses the Horsemen ride upon
