Matt Johnsen proclaimed:
Is the cover supposed to be a tribute to Deicide's Legion?
Necrophobic had this thing on their artwork as far back as the 91 Unholy Prophecies demo, a year before "Legion"
The similarity can't possibly be a coincidence, can it?
Other than its not really the same figure, it actually is:)
Well, it's not the exact same figure, but it's close enough, plus the colors and the logo design/placement. I guess it could be a coincidence, but...

Well, look,

Guitarist from Crematory came up with the symbol, and did all the Necrophobic cover art in the 90s

but yeah, the issue of a symbol aside, the overall design is certainly similar enough, although Deicide's trifixion gets the fisheye lens treatment:
