Bandinfo: Covenant
"We live in dark, confusing times and Covenant wrote an album about how that makes us feel. In a world that has stopped making sense, we need to learn how to see in the dark and "The Blinding Dark" is a triumphant embrace of the strength and resilience of the soul. It's the dystopian, unforgiving music of the reflective shadows we all carry within us, but often lack the courage to take a good look at. It's implosive instead of explosive, fueled by cold fury rather than a roaring fire, as beautiful as a collapsed star." (Joakim Montelius)

Covenant"The Blinding Dark", Covenants 9th studio album to be released on November 4 2016, is exciting not only because of its compelling title, but also since it shows a remarkable development in style, something that Covenant decidedly wanted to do with this record - and not least thanks to the subject matter they address. The Swedish/German outfit has perhaps just delivered their artistically most ambitious album yet.

It's also a new chapter for Covenant. The trio that became a quintet (featuring Andreas Catjar, Daniel Jonasson, Joakim Montelius, Daniel Myer and Eskil Simonsson) hasn't sounded this dark, moody and on target since their legendary 2nd album "Sequencer" 22 years ago. Yet there is nothing nostalgic about "The Blinding Dark". It steers like a probing Nautilus through black waters, straight towards the future, never looking back.

Welcome to the void.
