About this release

Earache Records, June 22nd, 1993

Music videos were made for Rapture and God of Emptiness.

The album was the first death metal album released on a major label only in the U.S. Some original copies have the parental advisory label on the covers which were later removed in future releases of the CD.

The Giant Records version of the album changed the front cover slightly by omitting the two circular sigils located on the left hand page of the open book in the top right hand corner of the cover.
The 2011 Earache digipack re-release omits only the left sigil.

Engineered at Morrisound Studios (Tampa, Florida).
Mixed at Sweet Silence Studios (Copenhagen, Denmark).
Co-produced by Morbid Angel.

Thanks to Stooge, Unitron, UMUR for the updates

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Morbid Angel were trimmed down to a trio lineup for this one, but you'd hardly know it given the furious and complex guitar playing showcased by Trey Azagthoth this time around. Refining and perfecting the approaches of the two previous albums, Covenant features weirder guitar solos that can be counted on to completely turn a song inside out once they're unleashed, more thunderous and brutal drums rhythms which keep up a furious pace throughout the album, and even more demented vocals, taking all the ingredients that made the previous two albums so intriguing and cranking them up to 11. This was the first Morbid Angel I ever really got into, and it helped my appreciation of the preceding works greatly; I'd suggest anyone new to the band begin their explorations here.
