The Hail To The King
album artwork was created by southern Californian artist Cam Rackam. The cover shows a terrifying shot of a skeleton king and is titled 'Deadly Rule.' "I wanted the cover to be serious, tough, and conquer-esque," Rackam told Noisecreep
. "[The album] stirs like an anthem for the modern warrior. So when it came to the painting, I was inspired by the final shot in Conan the Barbarian
— referenced from the Frazetta painting — where he is sitting at the throne in contemplation of the chaos in his kingdom. I loved that idea of the warrior king."
Rackam continued, "I wanted to keep in sync with the album's themes and lyrics, so I added some heavy satanic elements: pentagrams, inverted crosses and more. I'm thrilled with the final result; the band really let me take the reins on this one."
