Covenant return to the scene with this extremely impressive sophomore release. This Swedish trio seems to have learned a great deal from their debut album. They have been able to overcome some of the percussive and lyrical monotony that made the first album a bit dull in places. Instead they have been able to replace those repetitive portions of their music with a rather varied and dynamic array of synth patches and original percussion samples. The basslines are also a great deal more vibrant, which have a tendency to give the music a bit more of a punch even if the track really isn't much of a dance tune. Also tacked on to the end of this domestic release of "Sequencer" is the entire "Stalker EP". The combination of these two releases into a single album make for a powerful selection of dance tracks. With tracks like 'Figurehead' and 'Stalker', clubs are certain to pack dance floors every time. Overall Covenant has put together a rather solid release that once again proves that European electronic music is where most of the true innovation is coming from these days.

Covenant is:
Eskil Simonsson - composition & vocals
Jakim Montelius - lyrics & samples
Clas Nachmanson - performance & keyboards
