about

Another long-gestating LP here, and - as with most long-gestating LPs - it's an absolute belter! The Process are made up of several veterans of Scotlands hardcore and punk scenes, but this record isnae a document of what some guys did in the other bands before so I'll leave you to check that out for yourself. Here, the music speaks for itself!

"The Covenant Of The Cosmos" is the band's final testament having split up some time ago, and has a tone of finality about it: a kinda hardcore gnostic death-toll. It's a dense record, musically and thematically: lyrics deal with esoteric theology, cosmology, and Masonic symbology (I think....reading the lyrics results in a lot of further reading!); whilst the production is thick, textured and full.

The record definitely benefits from repeated listens; I've ben with it since pre-production and still finding bits here and there even now. It's a multi-faceted and densely-layered record: you can tell the band have their roots in metal (there are a few great wee proper metal guitar licks going on, as well as the odd death grunt and break straight out of Sunlight Studios '91) as much as hardcore. There are grindcore blasts coming from the same place that 30 seconds before was a cosmic lull, and relentlessly harsh vocals make way for an ethereal girl's voice.
<BR>I'm really chuffed with this one. I've loved most of what these guys have come out with both as The Process and in previous bands, and they know the score on how things should be done! Their vision has been realised entirely due to their (and Kunal's!) dedication, persistance, and singularity of artistic vision, and I'd like to think that's pretty evident holding this in your hands and giving it a listen from start to finish.
