Album

Cover

The artwork for this album was designed by Plantage. The cover shows the outside of an aircraft's black box, a small device that records everything that is happening on the plane and is nearly indestructible. When a plane crashes, the black box can be recovered to retrieve the audio file which can then be used to determine what happened 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 that 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.
