Beat-heavy yet introspective, "Leaving Babylon" is COVENANT's sonic exploration into uncharted emotional waters. It's the feeling of memory made sound — the melancholy of Sweden in the wintertime, the strange beat of electric hearts, and the longing for forgotten parties. It's time to listen.

The album will feature both brand new songs as well as "Northern Light" era demos that have finally been finished. Eskil: "I have a very good feeling about the new studio material.
