Front Cover

The white bar where the title is acts as a barrier between the audience and the tiger, preventing him to attack as such. This acts as a sort of protector making the band as a force to be reckoned with.

The Tiger is very feral and acts as an attacking force, which shows the concept of war and chaos. This image links to the title directing an idea of war or battle to the audience.

The text is very simple . Both band and album name are in the same size and font,which shows how the band does not want to emphasize themselves. The word ‘Mars’ and ‘War’ and emphasized and are in the colour Red while the others are transparent. Since both words are in red this interlinks each other as it shows that the band is at War.

Inside CoverThe white bar where the title is hides the eyes of the girl. Which shows taking cover basically the other side of the war , the victims of the war and how these victims are being effected.

This image is of a girl which reprents the victims. Girls are mostly seen as being repressed or weak thus , this image is shown as the weaker side of the war and how badly it effects people. Also her appearance is very ragged and messy , as if shes’s come out of a fight or had gone underground for cover, with her hair messed up. With the lighting her image represents injury, hurt or bad appearances.

The text is very simple . Both band and album name are in the same size and font. The word ‘Mars’ and ‘War’ and emphasized and are in the colour Red while the others are transparent. Since both words are in red this interlinks each other as it shows that the band is at War.

The Back cover is very simple in contrast with the front and inside cover. As it only has the logo of the band , which represents the band itself.
