COVEN “Zero”


Battle Helm Rating

There are so many different COVENs out there that it might be hard to keep them all apart but this one is a Japanese NWOTHM band that has a two track demo out that they want to promote. We have lately seen an increase in bands that claim to be NWOTHM (New Wave Of Traditional Heavy Metal). A claim that I have no problem with as heavy metal was my first love. Back in the 80s Japanese heavy metal was a novelty. It was a treat to get to hear bands singing in Japanese. Listening to COVEN I am taken back to that time and place. This is like listening to Earthshaker or Loudness for the very first time. COVEN carry that tradition of Japanese heavy metal with splendour. It will be fun following this band’s progression.
