The artwork for this album was designed by Plantage. The cover shows the outside of an aircraft's Black Box. A small device which records everything that is happening on the plane and is nearly indestructible. When a plane crashes the black box can be restored to retrieve the audio file which can be used to deduce on the plane before it crashed.
As a reference to this, there is a hidden track on the album, before "Reise, Reise", on track 0 - it can only be read by CD players which can rewind past track 1. It is a black box recording of the Japanese Airlines Flight 123. During the crash, 520 of 524 passengers were killed. Up to now, it remains the deadliest single-aircraft crash in history.
