Motionless in White
Motionless in White is a Metalcore-Band from Pennsylvania. Their music is not the classic type of metalcore. The addition of electronic/synth melodies combined with blastbeats pull them out of this genre, slightly. In 2017 the band released their album Graveyard Shift via Roadrunner Records.
Paying hommage to 80s horror movies
To finalize their album Graveyard Shift, Motionless in White launched an open call for artists and designers to design the cover artwork.
The band is known for having a passion for horror themes. This design is an hommage to old school horror movies, such as Stephen King‘s Pet Cemetary, but it also contains the message of fighting your way through life, no matter how hard it can be. In this case it is the graveyard worker who is stuck in a terrifying job. Stuck in a nightmare, he does not give up, he fights back with persistance and courage.
However this design has not been chosen to be the new cover.
