Svart Records presents the new wave of Japanese language British heavy metal! Coven, the dynamic duo of Akihiro Ito and Taka, began in 2016. The Tokyo-based heavy metal act worship at the altar of the likes of Iron Maiden and other NWOBHM bands such as Mercyful Fate, Metallica and Manowar. However, their approach is an original one in the sense that they bring in their Japanese heritage to the mix. "We want to retain our Japanese identity and originality, we want to bring our own Japanese metal to the world," the band comments. The Advent is the band's Svart debut, a very limited four song cycle of 20 minutes.
