You can tell that “101” with Depeche Mode has been an inspiration, but Covenant really try to put focus on the band seen from their own eyes, rather from the eyes of fans. It’s all very personal and interesting but the movie sometimes lack from poor editing and it takes some time to grasp what kind of film this is. Once you get the hang of it, this is a fascinating journey into the world of an electronic band on tour. The band speaks openly about their music and the creative process behind their tracks. They also used “In Transit” to officially announce that founding member Clas Nachmanson has left the band; you can read more about this in our Spotlight interview.
The live show is basically your classic concert DVD. It’s much better edited than “Synergy”, their VHS from 2000 that just was chaotic; this is much cleaner and gives a good impression of how they look and sound on stage. The CD follows the same formula and is a nice bonus. Together with the booklet where friends of the band has written down small stories this is a must buy if you like Covenant and want to experience life on the road with them.
It’s great to see that smaller bands now can release a DVD that is presented this professionally. I hope to see much more of this in the future.
