In keeping with tradition, Costin Chioreanu has set the visual tone for some bands playing Roadburn Festival 2016. Costin has cast his creative spell over some of his favourite artists on the Roadburn bill, and once again he has more than delivered.

Today, he has emerged as one of the most talented artists in the realm of avant-metal and dark psychedelica, producing work for the likes of Darkthrone, Opeth, Triptykon, At The Gates, Napalm Death and Arch Enemy. Whether the images he conjures are disturbing, provocative or enchanting, they consistently show great finesse, sensitivity and depth.
