If you were wondering what the cover is all about, according to a post on the bands Facebook page:
"The cover photo for the new album is a thin section of the Zagami meteorite. Zagami is a piece of the planet Mars that fell as a meteorite in Nigeria in 1962. It wasn't recognized as being from Mars until the late 1970s, after the Viking landers. One way geologists analyze rocks is to polish a slice thin enough so that it will transmit light. The thin section can then be studied with a microscope. The colors appear because of the ways that minerals with differing composition and crystal structure transmit polarized light. The sample in the photo is about 2 cm across."
