Daß es ein Leben nach CAT RAPES DOG und S.P.O.K. gibt, beweist Schwedens neuester Export COVENANT auf eindrucksvolle Art und Weise. Ganz unbekannt dürften die Skandinavier hierzulande allerdings nicht mehr sein, lieferten sie doch mit ihrem Beitrag zu den Samplern ¯We Came To DanceElectronic Youth 3Theremin« Die Debüt-CD beweist nun, daß das Hit-Potential von COVENANT noch längst nicht erschöpft ist. »Edge Of Dawn beim Hörer nachhaltig Eindruck zu hinterlassen. Eine ganz besondere Überraschung bereitet dabei ¯Cryotank Expansion« das mit einer Spielzeit von über 25 Min. aus dem gängigen Songschema ausbricht und mit bedrohlichen und bombastischen Sound-Collagen apokalyptische Visionen heraufbeschwört.

Dreams of a Cryotank is the second album I purchased from Covenant, and its one that I enjoyed quite a bit. It took a little while for it to grow on me because I purchased a latter album first, but adjusting a little by giving it a few spins actually helped it along. The reason it took some time was because some of it isn't as refined as the newer works they've produced, but that really isn't something to hold against them. The beats are still there, albeit a reflection of an older time, and the singing style is there in its initially rudimentary layers.
I went and picked this up because of the single Thermin, its heavy beat and the line "we dance to the sound of sirens and we watch genocide to relax" getting stuck in my mind. I actually like a lot of the EBM bands because of songs of this nature, with them having a little more meaning in their beginning stages. Here, we have a lot of songs about war and the destruction it causes, which seemed to be a staple for the EBM music in its early days. Besides Thermin, there are some other songs on the album that started growing on me as I listened to it some more. Although it's a little slow in build and the recording level seems a little low, I actually enjoyed the loops of the bomb being tested and the anti - war ballad being strummed in "Shelter." I liked "Voices" and "Edge of Dawn" a lot, too, because the beat for one was an odd construction that moved pretty quickly and because the other was just a fast-paced song and because, as always, I enjoy the voice behind the band. Granted, these weren't the greatest showcases of what he can actually do, but they still worked out pretty well. And a few others (Replicant, for one) were pretty good, too.
If you haven't checked out Covenant yet and are wanting to look into them, I'd suggest possibly picking up Europa and one of their two latest before going this way. Europa has some of the more refined elements of the band as it stood at the doorway of transition, and it'll let you see just what they've capable of. If you've picked up some Covenant and are tracking back to reclaim some of the older stuff, then this is something that's work acquiring . It has some of the stuff they were noted for doing before they defined their sound, so it's a notable entry into their body of work.
Members of covenant today are: Eskil Simonsson (vocals & music), Joakim Montelius (samples & lyrics) and Clas Nachmanson (keyboards and performance).
They started of in the mid/late 1980's as some sort of a electronic big band with various members and finally established the current setting consisting of Eskil Simonsson (vocals & music), Joakim Montelius (samples & lyrics) and Clas Nachmanson (keyboards and performance) some time in the early 1990's.
As many other newcomers in the music scene they started of with a demo tape ('Dreams of a cryotank' released in 1991 or 1992) and appearing on one of the compilations from Memento Materia ('Autumn Leaves') which was to be the company that they finally would sign a deal with.
In those early days they proved to be very different as a live band compared to other band in the genre. their shows has been dark, mystic and with no or quite little properties on stage they still manage to create a highly interesting scene show (rumors say that there was black plastic bags and hockey helmets involved).
The music is carefully assembled with a lot of dark, moody, industrial sounds and influences from other electronical bands like Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Kraftwerk, Prodigy, Frontline Assembly, Nine Inch Nails making a successful danceable combination of different styles.
The music must be heard, it can not be described fairfully and preferably you also must see covenant live since the live versions of some of the songs are heavily reworked and more raw and clean than the album versions that often contains many channels with different sounds and noises in good harmony.
In 1995 they acted as support to both Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft on their comeback tour as well as Frontline Assembly, another great band in the genre.
In late 1996 their next single Stalker was released and became another big underground hit. A video was made for this single but I haven't seen it yet so I consider this to be an rumor.
After some time of silence they came back with a new sound and a new single, "Final Man". They also appeared as a support act for Rammstein in Sweden. Now the sound was a bit lighter and a bit less complex which was confirmed on their 1998 full length album "Europa". They received the award for "Best Artist" at the Swedish Electronic Music Awards 1998 (picture to the left shows the band being handed their price by Alexander Hoffman (Android/S.P.O.C.K)) where they also preformed a great concert.
The next single is supposed to be "Tension" which will be released in late 1998.
