ALBUM (EP) THE ADVENT
LABEL SVART RECORDS
OUR RATING 82/100
COVEN is a band of only two members, a woman, TAKA, on vocals and bass, and a man, AKIHIRO ITO, who plays guitars and others instruments.
This EP, available as cd, vinyl and digital, is interesting, at first, because is well played, and next for mixed languages (english and japanese).
BRAVE WARRIORS is the 1st song, almost 6 min duration..a stunning classic HM song, son of NWOBHM and, particularly, of IRON MAIDEN, with their crazy gallops.
Same lenght for KARMA, and..same satisfaction..here the structure reminds us somethin’ from another cult NWOBHM band as SATAN.
WINGS OF GLORY is great, still in Maiden's mood.
SCREAM FOR TOMORROW is a song in japanese language, a dreamin' tune full of inspiration.
We can find the first atmospheres of Scorpions in Uli John Roth's era, before restarting in typical Maiden's style.
A really interesting band from Japan, in waitin' for a debut full-length!
