THE KOVENANT's Nagash (a.k.a. Lex Icon; real name: Stian Arnesen) and Psycoma are in the process of recording their sixth studio album, "Aria Galactica", which will be the band's final release on Nuclear Blast Records.

The group last year uploaded a demo sample from "Aria Galactica" at this location. The three-minute instrumental recording contains a few previews from some of the songs combined into one MP3 file.

Nagash previously stated that the follow-up to 2003's "S.E.T.I." (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) would be "the most exciting, surprising, energetic and accomplished KOVENANT record so far. Again, this will be a drastic detour from our ever-so-unpredictable path, and our ideas are set to fill you with wonder and amazement. Old fans, as well as more recently acquired listeners will certainly find this to be a very characteristic KOVENANT record, and we are most pleased to say that with our emerging creation, we will reclaim our position as a force of innovation and aspiration, not just for ourselves, but for the entire scene."
