BLOOD COVENANT “Sign Of Time” /CD/



The third full-length album by the Armenian Christian Symphonic Black Metal band.
"Sign Of Time" is one of those albums that has high points and low points but does have moments of brilliance and showcases a band with a lot of promise.
On the whole, the one aspect that surprised is the abundance of the orchestral/symphonic parts. Throughout the album, the Metal instruments, the guitars and drums, seem to be pushed to the back with the keyboards and symphonic elements dominating the mix. Some of the vocal parts really caught off guard as well. They features a section where the chorus is higher-pitched clean signing that reminds of 1980’s King Diamond. Likewise, the song "Faithful" has high pitched Death Metal style vocals most akin to shrieking that didn’t appear anywhere else on the album. In contrast, "Unseen War" shows more of the Black Metal side of Blood Covenant with its driving beat, galloping drum lines, strong guitars, choir-like choruses and intimidating spoken sections.
Overall, this is good album and it's recommended for all fans of Black and Folk Metal!
