Morbid Angel - Covenant

Morbid Angel - Covenant

Covenant is the third official full-length album by Florida based death metal band Morbid Angel. It was released on June 22, 1993. This album represented Morbid Angel's first foray into mainstream metal, through their contract with Giant Records. The music video for "God of Emptiness" was featured on Beavis and Butt-head and received airplay on MTV. The style of this album is more akin to the slower style of the previous album Blessed Are the Sick. Some early pressings of the album had a Parental Advisory logo on the cover. Future pressings of the album were produced without the advisory.

Covenant was reissued as a Digipak in 2011.

Much of the lyrics for this album, written by David Vincent, could be considered Morbid Angel's most Occult and Satanic based. The album's cover image shows a page from The Book of Ceremonial Magic by Arthur Edward Waite to the right, and a reproduction of "The Pact Of Urbain Grandier" on the left.

According to Nielsen Soundscan, Covenant is the best selling death metal album of all time, with sales of over 127,000 in the United States alone.
