Yet the cover art will come as a shock (an alternative slipcase cover is provided in case you deem it unsuitable for publication) to many, which is surprisingly not the intention.
The best explanation for this particular choice of cover art and the meaning behind this record are provided by NUMENOREAN: "Our albumrevolves around the idea of 'loss' and a longing for something that we as humans will never achieve. We are all empty and broken in some form or another, so we look for fulfilment through things like money, sex, relationships, drugs, religion, and a variety of other things but, in the end, we ultimately remain void of any true happiness. Perhaps what we are really searching for is the innocence that we once had as a child. However, since we are incapable of ever getting that back, the only place we can perhaps find this comfort once more is in death. The little girl on the cover represents this final resting place for us – beyond our existence in this world.
The title of the album sums it up once you realize that she does not have to go through all the pain and sorrow of becoming an adult. 'Home' evokes this melancholic blissful state within the listener and as you spend more time becoming familiar with her picture, you begin to see the music reflecting in her face seemingly close to smiling. Collectively we thought it was important to choose an image that established the language of the album as well as something that would allow the listener to begin their experience before even hearing the first song.
It is not vague, it is sincere and dangerously straight to the point. The album is meant to be listened to as an entire journey that transforms you from start to finish and although the lyrics vary on different aspects of loss, all five song titles represent the succession of one's life. 'Home': Born into the world with complete innocence. 'Thirst': Searching for answers in questions that life has given you. 'Shoreless': Feelings of hopelessness. 'Devour': Willingly letting life destroy you. 'Laid Down': Making peace with what you have become and surrendering yourself to the great nothingness."
