Teaser from Covenant’s new album *Leaving Babylon’

March 8, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Background message from Joakim (Covenant):

Ok.

An overwhelmingly intense week in the studio has passed. In glorious pain and love not given lightly, metaphorically speaking, the masters for the first release of the “Leaving Babylon” epic just arrived. I’m right now enjoying the honour of being the first person on the planet to hear the “Last Dance EP” in its entirety. Sometimes it’s pretty kool to be a member of Covenant.

It’s a 6-track EP with 4 songs and 2 remixes on it. One track written by each of us, including our new live member Andreas Catjar, so it’s a rather complex beast, this one. Majestic synths, quirky noises, unexpected harmonies, scary singing machines, fog horns, massive beats and of course Eskil’s incomparable vocals. I for one really look forward to see where this road is going to take us.

The exact release date is still in the shadows but we aim for June. Do keep tuned to keep track of that. We hope you’ll like it. Or find it interesting enough to react to it.

I’ll leave you with a little snippet from the title track “Last Dance” together with the evocative picture Eskil captured, from the ferry, of the castle Kronborg across the sound in Helsingör where Hamlet and his homies made such mayhem in Shakespeare’s classic. It’s like a mirage. Mist is common here, but I’ve never seen the castle like that. One can almost hear Horatio exclaim:

“And then it started like a guilty thing, upon a fearful summons”

With that paraphrase I bid you adieu. Peace, love and robot laws unto you all.
