Smash Hit by Gamma-Ray makes a strong first impression. There’s something about a shattered record that feels dramatic and powerful, like the sheer energy of the music couldn’t be contained by vinyl. The shock of red provided by the label contributes to that feeling, and the choice to forgo text in that section is a smart one as it keeps the viewer’s eyes firmly trained on the shapes involved. A closer look reveals that those shapes aren’t what they seem- at the center sits a silhouetted rocker, jumping as he whales away at his electric guitar. It’s a great image, and the realism of the highlights and textures of the record help it to really sing. Excellent!
