Why do you like Covenant?

Hello,

This is my first message and I would like to know the reasons you like covenant's music.

The reason I love their music is that it brings elements that I appreciated too much all my whole life, such as well written lyrics, synthesizers and mainly... that wonderful music!

I have known Covenant a little late, in 1998, when a friend showed me "Sequencer", since then I have been collecting all their albums.

I enjoy the kind of construction techniques behind the old albums which were more hardware based while most people prefer the most recent ones.

Please, tell me why do you like Covenant!

Hugs,

Jean

RE: Why do you like Covenant?

you asked why i like covenant and the answer is simple music that never gets boring to listen to no matter how many times i play the cd and lyrics that make me think even after hearing them again and again...

I just had an argument with an old friend of mine the other night about this, and he was trying to say that Covenant was boring and poorly produced...blah blah blah. I took this personally and he regretted it dammit!!
I guess the main reasons why I love Covenant have already been posted above. They have evolved with every album and their music is a relief from many artists that are popular in electronic music today. Besides the fact that they have a wonderful show!! I love them!!!

hi you all, i'm new .*waves* i usually post on weltfunk.

the reason why i love covenant is that they were the first band that i heard within the electro/industrial/ synthiepop/futurepop genre that i could really identify by sound. i feel that covenant does have a sound that is a little bit of a reference to kraftwerk but they still sound completely different than everyone else in the electronic genre; everything new sounds so refreshing. i find new meanings in the lyrics all the time. and the music is always great in clubs. i think that the first cov song i heard was 'go film' it really sets a certain mood in a club. wonderful.

and another reason i love covenant is that they played a show for me on my birthday. okay, not really me as for like 400 + other people in boston, but, it was on my birthday...i can look at it however i want!

Hi all !
I'm a new member, and a new fan of Covenant from Hungary. I don't want to boring you, but, I need to tell you my (maybe common) story.
I never heard anything about Covenant till spring of this year. I saw a Dance Chart in MTVpop, and when I was seeing the actual dance hits, I heard something strange, something special, something what I waited for till that time: that was the Call the ships to port video. My chin was somewhere at "the level of the grass"... I didn't imagined why is that fantastic music is just at the place of 33th. All in all, when I ask my friend to burn a CD, I wrote him to search some Covenant tracks, of course Call the ships to port, and some random choose from the latest album Northern light. He wrote me Bullet, Invisible&Silent, Winter comes, and also Atom heart. That was the last drop in the glass, I've fallen to the world of Covenant for ever. I order the first 2 album in an online shop. When I heard Dreams of a Cryotank first time, I was a little disappointed. But when I listened it more times, I started to love it, and now that is one of my favourite albums. The Sequencer sounded better at first time, but I think the Cryotank is better. Now I'm on the hunt to the other albums, unfortunately it is very difficult to find them here in Hungary.

So, why I like their sound: first of all, generally the fantastic electric music, what brought up to heavenly floor by Eskil's fantastic voice, and the best lyrics what I ever read.

Anyway my absolute favourite is Shelter.

Thank you for your time, ciao.

Thank you all for the replies, you are great! :perfekt:
I have a -maybe dense- question to -rather- german members (mostly to Covenantgirl): the online german recordshops, for example amazon.de, are only deliver only inside Germany, or they can deliver international ? And in other hand: VISA or other bank-card is needed, or the postal-addresse is enough ? Sorry for my poor knowledge about this.

Some other thoughts about Covenant, exactly the lyrics. (I'm encouraged :))
When I have heard the Call the ships to port first time, the vocal made the biggest impact in me. I didn't understand it clearly, my english wasn't/isn't good enought, but it was very interesting, it was unique among the meanless euro-trance hits, with their vokals about great nothings. So, I searched for the whole lyras of Call the ships, and of the other songs I mentioned in my last post. I found the official site, and all the lyrics. I started to read them, and a great deal of time later I had to realized that I haven't stopped the reading... They have got unbelievable value, as the greatest poets' poems. Moreover, better, because I feel that the things that Covenant try to tell us, is very close to me. The loneliness, feeling of being lost, the lack of purpose, the meanless existence... My soul is screaming for a meaning but the only answer I will ever get... So I found my deepest thoughts in Covenant's lyrics. The naked truth.
About a year ago my penfriend asked me: why is that everything what are serious, are sad ? I couldn't give her the answer. But now I think that the answer is in us: the human race is sad and lonely generally. We are the only evil animals, and we are born lost. Sorry for my dark thoughts, but I think that most of the cheerful happy stuffs what can be seen around us, are rotten inside. But we can always find a little glimmering light somewhere what helps us. Our northern light....

oh, it will better if I stop now, before this post went to a depressed kitsch philosophical essay... :)

thanx your time again

Thank you very much for your advices, this is the page what I have looking for!
One other question, maybe you can help me: are there any URL where I can download the Bullet and/or the Call the ships to port video ? I know that I can get them from the offical page, but they are just little .wmv files, the enjoyable playsize is like a stamp. Are they available anywhere in better quality ?

Thank you, best regards!
