ALICE IN CHAINS: The 'Secret' Behind New Album Cover Artwork Revealed - Mar. 22, 2013
A BLABBERMOUTH.NET user who goes by the handle "TheSorceressKnight" has unveiled the "secret" behind the cover artwork of the much-anticipated new ALICE IN CHAINS album, "The Devil Put The Dinosaurs Here". After loading the picture into Photoshop, TheSorceressKnight uncovered what appears to be a hidden image inside the cover. Check it out below.

"The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" will be released on May 14 via Virgin/EMI. The group's fifth studio effort is its second with William DuVall on vocals and follows up 2009's "Black Gives Way To Blue", the group's first all-new collection of material in 14 years and first since the 2002 death of original singer Layne Staley.

The "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" album title refers to a belief held by some religious individuals that to confuse the masses of humanity, Satan himself planted dinosaur bones deep into the Earth to dissuade the faithful.

In a new interview with Revolver magazine, ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell was asked about the lyrics, "The devil put dinosaurs here / Jesus don't like a queer / No problem with faith / Just fear," which appear in the new CD's title track. "What's the old joke?" Cantrell said. "There are two things you never want to get into a conversation or argument about: politics and religion. But fuck, I guess we're going to be talking about this for awhile. [laughs]"

He added: "Read a fucking paper. What I've seen is the most basic message to most faith systems is in contradiction with how it gets applied. The human element seems to fuck it up. It seems to fuck up the basic truths of acceptance, loving your brother, helping each other out, not trying to kill each other or steal each other's shit. Those are all pretty good ideas. And most of your major religions have those things as basic tenets of the belief system. It always amazes me that some of the most hateful and hurtful things are done in the name of some sort of belief system."

Songtitles set to appear on the CD:

* Voices
* Low Ceiling
* Stone
* The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
* Hollow
* Lab Monkey
* Hung On A Hook
* Pretty Done
* Breath On A Window
* Choke
* Phantom Limb

"We made a unique record that's completely different from anything we ever did," Cantrell told RollingStone.com. "It encapsulates a period of time, like all records do. You see growth and that the band is moving ahead in new territory that we haven't been to before, but we haven't lost our identity."

He added: "There's some real filth in there. That's intentional, and that's also just how we sound together. We're trying to make a record that we dig and we're trying to keep the bar high for ourselves and see if we can get past it, and I think that we did again. And of course you want people to dig it too and to respond to it, and to have that start happening is satisfying."

ALICE IN CHAINS released a first single called "Hollow" earlier this year from the new disc, along with an accompanying video.

"The initial response to 'Hollow' has been fucking incredible, totally not what we intended, and that's fucking awesome," Cantrell told RollingStone.com. "We just put that song out there for the fans and then it ended up turning into a number one single, a six-minute sludgy metal tune. That's always fun, to see something like that happen."

ALICE IN CHAINS began working on new material in 2011, but the sessions for the album were delayed when Cantrell had to undergo shoulder surgery.

The band has announced a spring trek that starts on April 25 in Miami Beach and will include headlining slots at the Rocklahoma, Carolina Rebellion, Welcome To Rockville and Rock On The Range festivals.

Shitty artwork, shitty album title. Like the song and video for Hollow though. I'm sure the album has some great tracks.

Simple. The minute I saw the album cover, I could see the other dinosaur's skull, barely, and I knew there was more to the album cover than meets the eye. And sure enough, with some minor color corrections, I managed to unveil the "secret" behind it.

Agreed 100%. the "fan" must be on the band/label payroll. Either way, it's cooler than the regular cover. Title is still corny, but if the music is killer, then who cares?

"This person has to work for the band" I wish I did, but I don't. And I'm not on the band/label payroll either. I'm just a hardcore Alice In Chains fan with good graphic skills (Mind you, I've been using Photoshop for almost 14 years now.) The minute I saw the album cover I could see the other dinosaur's skull, barely, and I knew there was more to the album cover than meets the eye. And sure enough, with some minor color corrections, I managed to unveil the "secret" behind it.

well kudos then to you, but you can understand I'm sure how people would be like "Yeahh right!"...I've been using photoshop for 13 years and I didn't think at all to do that or ever would think to do that...After seeing your post in the last AIC thread though I did it as you instructed and it totally worked. Impressive... then after doing it myself and then looking at the original cover, I could see the faint shape of the second reversed skull like you mentioned. Well thanks for killing the skeptic in me, anyway. Very cool!

This tittle is the most epic tittle ever for an album, from ready the comments it seems that the meaning of this tittle is over there head. I am so happy they are fighting against creationism.

Read a fucking book you morons.

You read a fucking book, moron. Creationists believe that dinosaurs walked with man and were not evil. It is the christian fundamentalists that believe satan planted dino fossils to test man's faith. To me the title seems that the band supports the ridiculous notion that satan planted fossils. It could also be mocking the theory, which I really hope it is, and they have a song that takes a shit on this theory and on all those who support it. We'll see.

The ignorance of some people never ceases to amaze me. Good job on the find sir, I noticed the second skull as well but didn't think much of it. Definitely gives the album a creepy vibe with the social commentary involved.

everybody made a big deal about 12-21-12 mayan calendar--
--
the only cool thing i noticed--was that aic released this song--right before out of the blue--and it was really cool
---
these guys "beat" the great "grunge" media psyop---that the communists threw at the "art world" beginning in teh 90s
--
as soon as the u.n. (clinton)got in power---they had to reorganize the media

so they hyped the seatle bands on the tv---but gave them a "grunge" label---to smear the infinite music scene that had been building since at least the start of mtv
----
many stars were suddenly given labels by "Entertainment outlets" that they didnt set out to be---there was much suicide
-----
anyway---alice in chains has risen above----with some solid satanic weird ass shit

alice in chains saved "rock"

I like the devil version. They might put some 3D effect in it like Rammstein did with their recent DVD which showed all their heads one for one.
