The designer is Christian Ruud, who also made the [Ashes] artwork.

I doubt that it's more than a coincidence...it's quite unprobable that Tristania know and like ST so much that they refer to them on their cover, and there's nothing referring to Franz Kafka/Gregor Samsa/Die Verwandlung in the lyrics either.

Um.. when I looked up Chrisitian Ruud up on Wikipedia, it said he was a tennis player from Oslo, Norway.
Not a cover designer. XD
