This is one where I'm at a loss to describe what I really like about it.   It may be the perspective showing the valley and hills?   Beats me, but I can spend a lot of time just staring at the cover,

This is one of those covers that simply doesn't transfer over very well.  If it did, you'd see a picture of this Finnish band standing in the middle of a forest.  What makes the picture so cool is the lens effects.  I don't know enough about cameras to know the name of the lens, but it gives the sunlight filtering through the leaves a very cool effect.
