BLACK SABBATH: Artist Explains Inspiration Behind 'Born Again' Album Cover

BLACK SABBATH fan site has posted the story behind the cover for SABBATH's classic 1983 album "Born Again", which was previously thought by some to have been uncannily similar to a DEPECHE MODE single cover for the track "New Life".

"For ages, there's been some wonder behind the story of the cover art for 'Born Again'," webmaster Joe Siegler wrote in an e-mail to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "Earlier in this year I ran across a DEPECHE MODE album cover that looked the same. This week I received an email from Steve 'Krusher' Joule, who did the artwork for SABBATH's 'Born Again' album. He sent me a story behind the legacy of the cover art and its source material." Read Steve's story and check out some of the related images on Siegler's "Born Again" page here.
