“Working with Bahrull was great. He is very professional and a great artist. He took our project on short notice and did a great job. He took our idea added his ideas to it and the result is awesome. We have had a lot of compliments on the artwork and cd layout. We are very happy with the artwork and layout he provided for us.” – Dan Gates (Vocals/ Guitarist, TON)

“Bahrull Marta (Abomination Imagery) is a fantastic artist with big variation in his work. He is compatible and open to ideas and have always listened to my wishes and have changed thing as i have desired to fit my requirements. He is a very very talented guy and we in Mephorash hope we can work with him more times in the future!” - Erik Andersson / Lethargus (Guitarist, Mephorash)
“When Houwitser came in contact with Bahrull Marta of the ABOMINATION IMAGERY back in 2009, we were blown away by his artwork. We knew then, that he was the artist Houwitser wanted to work with. His excellent, twisted and sick artwork was exactly what we were looking for. Some ideas about how we would like the artwork for the new album were exchanged. As results, in a couple of days Bahrull already could show us his work. The “Bestial atrocity” album art is the most extreme cover artwork Houwitser ever had and it completely complements the music.” - Richard Gielen (Guitarist, Houwitser)
