Awesome!! Maybe mixed media.
At the very less you have an idea, It took me this long to pick just the song-The Crystal Method - Now Is The Time. I say go crazy, if it works it works!! Abstract is a style of Illustration after all. A very simple style but very strong composition based style. Do yourself a favor too look up a high res cd template.
I'm doing a 3 sided cover just for the fun of it, that way if one of the covers don't work I have one to fall back on.
if anyone else needs it here is a link...
This is what I came up with, The Crystal Method are like techno so my theme is dance and music. The girls are dancing and listen music, I may just change the band to a dance techno band. May just play around with more thumbnails, for the most part I plan on combining them.

hi this is an amazing topic i was just wondering does it have to be in an illustrative style?
Im not sure yet on how far i should go on shadows/highlights and coloring. The main goal is focus the viewers attention to eyes and the guns i think, any thoughts on this?
Also, i havent decided if i want a full picture on the back or just some shapes, would it lead to too much distraction if i did a backview of the front illustration on the back?
