New Amorphis albumart borrowed from Static Lullaby?

This was originally posted in

"It has been brought to our attention that the cover artwork for "Skyforger", the forthcoming album from Finnish dark metallers AMORPHIS, bears more than a passing resemblance to that of "Faso Latido", the 2005 CD released by the Chino Hills, California post-hardcore band A STATIC LULLABY."

Amorphis "Skyforger"

Static Lullaby "Faso Latido"

Resemblance? I think so. Buf if you come to think of it...this is really about resemblance of elements. Both albums have a tree and fire which are the centerpiece of the artwork. I really wouldn't call this a copycat-cover. If we would start taking elements from cd-covers and start matching them with each other, we would have tons of "copycat" covers.

And besides...what if Amorphis were aware of this cover and liked the idea it presented? Clearly the cover hasn't been copied or anything. It has as I said earlier, similar elements but that's it. And to conclude...I think the Amorphis version is better.
