The band commented on the artwork as follows: "The artwork for "Empires Collapse" came about from wanting to take a much more focused and simplistic approach. Previous WARBRINGER album covers are extremely detailed, busy works, so it was a conscious decision to have art that was the antithesis of what we had done before. John Laux came up with the concept, so we had our friend Adrienne Rozzi to make up a sketch, which led to us having her follow through with the final piece. It's incredibly different from what most fans would expect for a WARBRINGER album cover, but we wanted the art to visually reflect the music. The piece reminds us of a Tarot Card illustration and sets a very cryptic, somber vibe which associates well with the music that ties into the album's title."
