Australian composer and singer/guitarist Jed Kurzel is known for being in rock group The Mess Hall, and then moving into composing for films such as The Babadook, Macbeth, and Assassin’s Creed. With Covenant closing the arc between Prometheus and Alien, Kurzel draws on the original’s stark isolation and pure horror with spine tingling effect.

The soundtrack to Alien: Covenant opens with the short and ominous “Incubation”, which then dives straight into “The Covenant” with a touch of military tap. “Neutrino Burst” is where the tension starts to rise and “Planet 4/Main Theme” is as majestic as anything else in this score, just beautiful. While many of these tracks are in the 1 to 2 min. range, which is quite standard, there are a number of longer tracks that give Kurzel the opportunity to rev up the orchestral engines to maximum power, so to speak.
