Being a gothic/doom/death/black/heavy/@#$! metal listener never thought this genres could have a relation with children of this age.
It's a bizarre approach but it also gives the idea people who makes this music are sick from the birth. A bit scary than bizarre though. Especially the "twins", I thought it was a kinda campaign for stillbirth without reading the bottom copy.
Execution is nice.

it's like a serial killers childhood, all three are very nice photographs, i like this children and darkness theme, i get curious about the magazines content, so it works :)

The innocence of children gives the whole theme more contrast.

I like that they used children since they are most innocent, and the idea here is that innocent looking people can have a "dark side", which is very true. I don't think this has anything to do with being "sick from the birth". Great campaign!
