Editors’ Notes At the time of its release in 1993, Morbid Angel’s third album was probably the most extreme album to ever appear on a major label. As a result, this master class in death metal virtuosity infiltrated suburban living rooms via MTV’s Headbangers Ball and Beavis and Butt-Head with videos for “Rapture” and “God of Emptiness.” Guitarist Trey Azagthoth’s unorthodox and hyper-technical style produced some of the band’s most vertiginous material while increased exposure helped make Covenant one of the top-selling death metal albums of all time.
