I think that after the lukewarm reception of Abigail 2 that King is staying away from doing sequels to stories. Now that I can actually see the artwork from the high res pic I'm even more stoked about the release of this album. That image is totally wicked-- I LOVE IT!!!  :D

The stairs appear as if they are metal.  Its possible the setting is not a house.  Maybe a PLACE or building. 
Blackhills Sanitarium? :D
I like the detail of the artwork- the smeared handprint on the wall where the cross was for example.  Can't wait for a larger picture online or, better yet, to have the CD.

I`m agreed with many of you, this dosent looks like a king diamond`s artwork but it one of the best KD covers
many bands are done the same, that change the artwork style, i rilli like the efect of the mirror and that someone is watching it

Who created the cover??

I`m still wondering what king dimond would mean with the word YOU...
Me and my black cat Magic, the beautiful house on Never Ending Hill, the little girl in the bloody dress and her dead little brother, the dark, the floating head woman, shapes of black and YOU

Holy shit!  I didn't even notice the cross was fallen! Great effect with the build up of dust on the wall to leave the original impression before it turned upside-down  :D  Sweeeet!  I eagerly await the album with intense anticipation  ^^
All hail the God of metal: KING DIAMOND!  _\m/

...i am pretty sure what we are looking at is not a painting

same here, i see some effects that you can't make with a brush (or the painting must be realy HUGE so the artist could go into great detail, but i doubt it)

The cover is really good, and I'm sure the cover will be even better when we've got the album
and read the story while listening to the music.
I really hope this album gets on vinyl, would be killer with such coverart!

it might be the original art work but i am pretty sure what we are looking at is not a painting

i looked at the two images again:

i think the 'sample' isn't the albumart, it has been redrawed (or some parts of it). if you lay it on top of the original artwork, you can see that the background is the same, but that the girl is put more to the back. also, the face of the girl looks less evil as on the sample (but that could be because of the small size of the pic)
also, the girl hasn't got any eyes in her hands anymore (it's now some kind of doll, or siccors?) and got more blood on her hands (but again, it could be because of the small size), the stains on her dress are the same
the albumart is also a lot darker then the 'sample'

so what i think: the 'sample' is the original artwork and is made with computer, king bought it and let the artist do some changes. making the whole darker with PhotoShop isn't that hard, and if you work with layers, you could resize the girl very easy, so this sounds quite logic to me... but i thought i red somewhere on this site that the albumart would be a real painting again?
so if this is true, king must have taken an other artist who painted a copy of the original or something...

i think we gonna need to wait untill the album is released the know it for sure if it is a painting or not
