Dunno why Pim is downplaying but that's a total rip-off. Google the images and compare if you don't believe me...

The drummer's silhouette has a strong resemblance to Roger's in the Live Killers cover.

Hopefully it was meant as a tribute to Queen.

Pim has...issues. And a rather warped sense of the limits of artistic decency (i.e. it has to be a literal, identical copy for it to be plagiarism in the Codex Dercius).
