Hello, I'm Marcelo Vasco, a Brazilian cover artist immersed in the music scene since the mid-90s. Specializing in print media for metal culture, I've crafted iconic designs for Slayer, Machine Head, Kreator, Dee Snider, Soulfly, Dark Funeral and more. Leading the graphic department at AISA Music and By Norse Music, I collaborate with major labels like Nuclear Blast and Century Media. Recognized as a top metal graphic artist, my work is featured in publications worldwide. Beyond art, I play guitar in The Troops of Doom, founded by Sepultura's Jairo Guedz, and engage in various musical projects. A wine enthusiast, I'm also a small producer at Treamici Vinhos in Brazil (Vale dos Vinhedos - Bento Gonçalves/RS).

I first had the pleasure of working with Marcelo Vasco on "Bloodstone & Diamonds" album. Not only did he deliver in an extremely timely manner under an immense amount of pressure, he delivered some of the most disturbing, interesting and just flat-out fuckin' cool artwork Machine Head have had in some time.

We had a number of submitted ideas for the cover artwork and we felt Marcelo's was the best. We made some suggestions and the result is an awesome album cover.

Marcelo Vasco has been my personal artist for a couple of years now. I love his work. He brought a lot of new ideas and concepts to Soulfly. He is also the fastest artist I have ever worked with! I’m proud that he’s brazilian like me. He’s making a name for himself

outside of Brazil.

I had the pleasure of working with Marcelo for several years now, developing ideas for artwork with Dimmu Borgir, Chrome Division & Ov Hell and I highly recommend him, my number 1 choice... A true artist with passion for his work & dark art in any visual form. Professional, fast,

effective & a good friend.
