The Advent

Rated 3.78/5 (75.56%) (9 Votes)

Coven is a Japanese act that plays 80s-style heavy metal featuring a nicely authentic guitar tone and rambunctious lead work. With lyrics sung in Japanese on top of the music, the comparisons to Loudness are inevitable and more than a little accurate. The big difference is Coven's singer is terrible. He's got a depthless voice and he sings flatter than a pancake more often than not. Fix the singing and Coven might be on to something. Until then, there is not much reason to seek out this EP when you can go back and spin The Law of the Devil's Land or Disillusion just as easily.
