Covenant - Nature's Devine Reflection (1992)
The one and only album from this US one man band.
Covenant is David Cryder on drums, bass, percussion and various synths, organs and keyboards.
David has experience from several thrash and heavy metal bands. Both before and after making this album. He is still active in one or more thrash metal bands.
This album has two fifteen + minutes long compositions and one shorter one. Three compositions altogether.
And yes, this is an album drenched in keyboards, synths and organs.
This album is like an ELP album without Greg Lake. It is like Keith Emerson going insane on the tangents.
Organs, synths and keyboards merges into a bombastic landscape and unit throughout this forty odd minutes long album.
It is an interesting album it cascades of tangents supported by bass and drums is your thing.
To be fair, this is not a bad album at all. It is nowhere near melodic and it's qualities is a bit dubious. But I am glad he did this album and that SynPhonic released it.
This is a decent album and one fans of ELP and keyboards will find enjoyable.
