Morbid Angel - Covenant mp3 download


Covenant is the third official full-length album by Florida-based death metal band Morbid Angel. It was released on June 22, 1993 through Earache Records in Europe and Giant Records in North America. Covenant was the band's breakthrough album due to their contract with Giant Records and its widespread exposure on MTV's Headbangers Ball, as well as the music video for 'God of Emptiness' appearing on Beavis and Butt-head.

Covenant is, in some ways, one of Morbid Angel’s darkest albums, not lyrically but sonically. Quite a bit of this has to due with the deep, organic production job, but really, most of this is in the highly aggressive, more straightforward and less elaborate approach (compared to Blessed Are the Sick). The point is that while this is more straightforward than the previous album, it is by no means a regression on the band's part

Morbid Angel is one of the best death metal bands ever, period, hands down, case closed. Their first four albums alone cemented their place in death metal history. Altars of Madness is sometimes touted as the greatest death metal album ever(although I don't personally agree with that opinion). Blessed are the Sick saw the band progressing somewhat, adding some artsy classical interludes that didn't detract from the band's thrash-and-bash. Then we have this album, which I'll get to in little bit, and Domination, an album which I have dubbed the catchiest death metal album of all time as well as one of the grooviest albums of their career. So, why I am reviewing this album as opposed to one of the other four? Part of the reason is because I find the history behind this particular album to be fascinating. Guitarist Richard Brunelle had just quit the band at this point and left the three remaining members(David Vincent: Bass/Vocals, Trey Azagthoth: Guitar, Pete Sandoval: Drums) to record on their own. This was also one of the first death metal albums to be released on a major label. When it was feared that the big label execs would come in and tone down their extreme music and themes, the band's manager stepped in... I suggest reading Choosing Death, a book about the origins of death metal and grindcore, for a more interesting version of that story. The result is that this is one of MA's most extreme album's ever, both musically and lyrically. The second reason why I chose this album for review instead of any of the others is that Covenant is the album on which I started to understand MA's appeal. I "got it", saw the big picture. This album is immediately engrossing and has staying power, to boot. And it's additionally impressive that this album was performed as a three piece. Sandoval and Azagthoth both deliver mind-blowing performances on drums and guitar, respectively. Both players are in the top 3 players of their respective instruments in death metal, easily. And while Vincent's bass playing doesn't poke out all that much, it does provide a good foundation for the other instruments to stand on. Vincent's vocals are ferocious, however, and do merit noting. He's not one of the most guttural vocalists on the planet, there's still some thrash influence in there, but he's got a good control of his voice and his blasphemous lyrics are delivered with venomous conviction. Take your pick of any of the songs here for some downright evil death metal. Rapture, Pain Divine, The Lion's Den, Angel of Disease, Sworn to the Black, and God of Emptiness are my favorites. But really, consistency is key here, and all ten songs on here are good. Even Nar Mattaru, an instrumental interlude which could be considered filler by some, does a fantastic job of introducing the groovy finale God of Emptiness and is suitably creepy. A death metal classic, Covenant can also be appreciated by music fans who aren't afraid of the dark side.

Covenant was a very fresh and catchy album from Morbid Angel. Released through Earache Records in Europe on June 22nd, 1993, the album was the first to feature only one Guitarist, with Trey Azagthoth covering Richard Brunelle's place, the album turned out more aggressive, heavier and more old-school-sounding.Although the album featured the Parental Advisory label, Covenant was considered more Religion-based than any other of Morbid Angel's recordings.With many fast and ferocious classic tracks such as "Rapture", "Pain Divine" and "World of Shit (The Promised Land)", the recording also featured a list of ponderous tracks like "Angel of Disease" with it's shredding and crunchy guitar riffs and its slow drums, as well as others.The album can be powerful and fast or it is also (at the same time) slow-paced but very catchy and heavy.A great album for Death Metal fans and collectors.Top 5 Best Songs:1.

Even if reduced to a trio, Morbid Angel released Covenant, a high point in their catalog. In fact, the sound on Covenant seems drastically mutilated: without a second guitar, Trey Azagthoth had to fill Richard Brunelle's absence by making double the work he had to made. That allows Covenant do diminish a bit the punishing sound that affected their two preceding albums and permits the listener to focus a bit more on the music itself.However, when the riff is good, there's not even need for a second guitar. Highlight "World of Shit (The Promised Land)" stands particularly on its own, with is groundshaking Arabic melody, its spacey rhythms and its sudden breakdown halfway through, but opener "Rapture" shows itself some value. "God of Emptiness", especially, seems the closer thing Morbid Angel did to release their own version of a Led Zeppelin song. Probably the rest of the songs don't stick in memory as the others do, but that's not to say that "Sworn to the Black" "Angel of Disease" don't show good chops (the latter shows Trey took some tricks from nothing else than Alice in Chains). The problem is that they feel too similar to the rest of the album. Morbid Angel aren't a band that writes catchy hooks or funky grooves: they chose the most difficult road to impress people. However, Covenant still remains their musical breakthrough.Highlights:"World of Shit (The Promised Land)", "Angel of Disease", "God of Emptiness".
