He also had another recent gem that was created for the Ronin Flix release of The Church:

What's your favorite Benscoter artwork?

#107283 Damn. This is the cat who did the Absurd cover? This stuff legitimately puts me off my feed. Not a negative judgement of his ability mind you; obviously a very talented fellow.

Indeed:

Benscoter has been revered for years in the metal realms, and I think it's great to see him being recognized and commissioned for horror films/soundtracks as well.

#107298 Yeah he’s great, some of my more metal head fans are big fans of his.

I really hope that city of the living dead release is a US release

Nice! He also created Nile's Black Seeds of Vengeance and a Mortician cover in the early 2000's. Do you have any additional info on that art book? I'm not familiar.

I picked up a De Rossi/Fulci tribute print from him a year or two ago:

Also, check out this excellent cover for Vampyros Lesbos:

#107375 Mortician! That was how benscooter came up in convo recently, I’ve been racking my brain. They are local band for me and a friend of mine was pretty tight with will rahmer back in the day, I think I may have been at a big party with him at another mutual friends house a number of years ago.
