SILVERDOLLAR

Morte

Cover Artwork & Booklet Design

The theme of the album, as I was told before starting work on that project, was meant to deal with the Italian Mafia in the United States.

No need to say, during that month I worked on the project, I revisited all my favorite movies like "Good Fellas", "Donnie Brasco" and the like, played the game Mafia and even tried cooking some meals that were cooked in the movies I was watching.

Not many people suspect that, but since my mom works in the chemistry/cosmetics field in a highly-respected local company, she happens to know a lot of our hometown's elite. The photos I used were from her personal archive. 

For example, the guy I digitally beheaded was one of the company's former C.E.O.'s, and the guy shaking his hand is the man that was the town's mayor at the time.

The guy on the cover who holds the revolver is actually a family friend who happens to be one of the leading figures in the local military manufacturing factory. They make the AK-47 there!

Some other elite guys you can see drunk on a restaurant table during a company celebration.

90% of those people don't have even the slightest idea that their faces are on the cover/booklet of a Swedish heavy-metal band and that they have been seen worldwide.

"Morte" by Silverdollar was released in 2011 by German label Massacre Rec. GmbH
