The Kovenant

Profile:
An experimental metal band from Hamar/Oslo, Norway, founded in 1992 by Stian Arnesen (aka Lex Icon/Nagash), who was then joined by Amund Svensson (aka Psy Coma/ Blackheart/Thanatos).

Covenant was initially founded as an atmospheric/symphonic/melodic/black metal hybrid, but made a drastic stylistic turn towards more modern industrial/electronic influenced metal on their third album Animatronic. Since 1999 the band has been known as The Kovenant as they were forced to change name after a copyright dispute. Since 2003 they have been working on their fifth album Aria Galactica, which remains uncompleted.

I think there should be two different pages..
1 for "Covenant" and one for "The Kovenant".
Eventhough the members are the same the music is not.

"Covenant" was pure black metal, while "The Kovenant" is more industrial black metal.
