Covenant - Last Dance (CD EP – Dependent)

Posted on 27/06/13

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Genre/Influences: EBM, future-pop.

Content: Two years after the “Modern Ruin” album Covenant has a new full length in the pipeline. The album “Leaving Babylon” is planned for later on in the year, but has been announced as a new departure for Covenant. Daniel Myer left the band after “Modern Ruin” and got replaced by Andreas Catjar who has been involved in less familiar projects.

Despite of Myer’s departure “Last Dance” holds on the singular and exceptional sound treatments that made Covenant famous. I was deeply impressed by the title song, which sounds like a kind of dance rotor. The song is featuring the typical sound of Covenant which can be found somewhere in between EBM and future-pop. There’s a kind of mysterious atmosphere hanging over the song, which is mainly dominated by a deep, blasting bass line and the exceptional vocals of Eskil Simonsson. “Last Dance” sounds like it is announcing a new and creative opus by those Swedish sound geniuses. There also is a “Version”-edit/remix of “Last Dance”, which even sounds more sophisticated. I prefer this mix showing Covenant at their best. I also have to mention a very impressive remix by Modulate. This remix sounds quite progressive and in my opinion one of the best remixes Modulate has ever realized.

Next to the title song, this EP features 3 other tracks. These songs are not exactly meant to set dance floors on fire. The tempo is rather slow, but the songs seem to indicate the will of Covenant to always go further in the exploration and creation of unique sound sculptures. We here might speak about some experimental of minimal approach. “Slow Dance” –written by the new member, totally matches with this experimental approach. Speaking for myself I’ve been impressed by the terrific and outstanding resonating bass line running through “We Go Down”.

Conclusion: An EP doesn’t necessary indicate that much about the upcoming album, but “Last Dance” however reveals the endless creativity of the Swedes.

Best songs: “Last Dance”, “Last Dance – Version”, “Last Dance – Modulate Remix”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.
