The whole concept of the album is about Spawn. So, in that, it is McFarlane metal.Todd McFarlane is a comic book artist who created Spawn, the character on the cover of the IE album.
I fail to grasp how that is relevant, but hey, opinions, man!
Not sure what that says about the quality, though. If anything Todd McFarlane is far more creative and interesting than Jon Schaffer so it should enhance it?
