THE KOVENANT Commence Work On "S.E.T.I."

Norway's THE KOVENANT have entered Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany to begin recording their new album, entitled S.E.T.I. (The Search For Extraterestial Intelligence), for a late 2002 European release through Nuclear Blast Records (the album will see the light of day in the US in early 2003). According to bassist/vocalist Lex Icon, "On the new album we have been fortunate enough to be accompanied by a string-quartet and a few sopranos. The style of the album is, as always, hard to describe, since the overall sound picture changes a lot after the album is done. One could categorize it as cybertrash/electro-rock/metal. I guess you'll just have to wait for a little while to find out. But then again, so do we… hahaha."

Among the tracks that are tentatively set to appear on the album are the following:

01. Planet of the Apes
02. Hollow Earth
03. GenTech Ranch
04. The Perfect End
05. Camp Narssiscius
06. Strange Days (THE DOORS cover)

Also in the works is a DVD and a remix album, both of which will surface in 2003. Says Icon, "We are also planning to release a DVD/VHS at the beginning of next year. It will be put together as a sort of 'Rockumenatry.' It will feature live clips, backstage stuff, festivals, tour stuff, music videos, interviews with all the members, fan stuff, pictures, personal video material, 'X-rated' stuff and a whole lot more... I think the fans will really enjoy what we are putting together. And, since next year will be our 10th anniversary, we will also release a remix album, featuring a lot of major bands and persons in the music scene."
