Composer: Martin O'Donnell

Covenant Dance is a piece included in the Halo: Original Soundtrack.


It is most most notably heard on the level Assault on the Control Room and during fights with the Flood on Two Betrayals, Keyes and The Maw. It is also heard on the level Truth and Reconciliation, when you first enter the ship. It starts after about a minute, when more Covenant start pouring out to kill you and your Marines. It also makes an appearance in many Bungie Videos, most notably during the introduction of the Equipment feature in Halo 3.


As its name implies, the song is carried by a strong dance beat. At 00:16, the beat becomes underlaid to a more dominant snare-drum beat. Starting at 00:30, a variation of the Halo theme starts off with the monkish chorus in time to the beat. At 00:52, the beat and chant grind to a halt and are replaced by a less regular synth beat. At 01:08, a higher synth melody arises to follow the new synth beat. At 01:15, the drumbeat starts up again. At 01:31, the chant returns, but shortly disappears again. Soon after, the drum and synth follow it, allowing the song to smoothly conclude.
