MORBID ANGEL - Covenant LP
“Covenant” is where Florida luminaries Morbid Angel reached the zenith of its writing. Building further upon the groundwork laid with the preceding album, the band sought to push boundaries on all fronts. Marred by interpersonal trouble during pre-production the band had something to prove, and “Covenant” sounds so much better for it. Subtly melodic, highly atmospheric, bone-dustingly heavy and crunchy in its onslaught the band spared no expenses making this the best it could possibly be. It probably has Morbid Angel at its creative peak, and the blood-curdling aggression is offset by its oppressive atmosphere and deeply misanthropic lyrical subject matter. Third time is the charm for these Florida natives, and “Covenant” is a high-water mark for a good reason.
Made with the full support of the band, "Covenant" has been specially remastered from the original tapes in Full Dynamic Range (FDR) audio, allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving the album a more ferocious, immersive and dynamic sound than ever before.
