Introducing Pulsations’ “Tainted Covenant”, the debut album from the Copenhagen-based post-punk/darkwave project by producer and musician Hadrian Esteves. The vinyl edition of their debut album will be available later this spring, with the release date to be announced. This limited edition features only 300 copies, pressed on 140gr black vinyl.

Showcasing Pulsations’ unique blend of wave and post-punk, “Tainted Covenant” features ten tracks inspired by a variety of poignant and thought-provoking themes, including their Faustian bargain with technology, oppression, inequitable resource distribution, and the perils of religious dogma.

Both the CD and vinyl editions of “Tainted Covenant” contain an exclusive cover version of Sisters of Mercy’s “Dominion.” To get a taste of the album, check out the music video for “Neglected Synapses” right below. The band’s debut double A-side single, consisting of the tracks “Bedwarfing Virtues” and “Among Daughters Of The Wet Stones”, was released by Crunch Pod in August 2020.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
