Jönköping, Sweden-based death/black metallers NETHERBIRD have released "Covered In Darkness", their tribute to some of the bands and songs that made them "discover some aspect of music and it has partly become part of the sound of NETHERBIRD." The group says, "We have intentionally chosen to cover tunes that sound a little (and some even more) different from NETHERBIRD and the music we do. The reason is simple; if we would have covered something akin to our own sound we would only make a copy and we prefer to create something new, to try some new angle and perhaps also make more people discover some songs they might have otherwise missed out on. With this said, it is also natural for me to say that these recordings were done almost three years ago but we have waited for the right moment to send them out. Our next MCD will not sound like this at all so take these recodings for what they are: music.
"We hope you will be able to enjoy them and that it also shows you a little about the broad spectra of sounds that really make up NETHERBIRD and that our influences go deep and broad. So be prepared for some surprises both in these tracks, we will always do the things we find interesting and as long as it is dark it is NETHERBIRD, and so are these tunes."
