EDEN'S CURSE picture
In late August 2007 the Rock and Metal world witnessed the birth of Eden's Curse, a multi-national Melodic Metal group with its members spanning four countries and two continents. Formed in January 2006 by chief songwriter and Bassist, Scotsman Paul Logue (David Readman / Cry Havoc) and United States born and bred Vocalist Michael Eden (Seven Ten), these two musicians hatched a plan to form a group utilizing the wonders of modern technology and in particular the world wide web. Armed with nothing but passion, spirit and an uncompromising batch of hyper rock songs they found German guitar virtuoso Thorsten Koehne (Code Of Perfection / Demon Drive / Attack) and English Drummer Pete Newdeck (Steve Grimmett Band / Paul Dianno’s Killers / Lionsheart / The Shock), before experienced German keyboard player Ferdy Doernberg (Axel Rudi Pell / Rough Silk / Therion / Taraxacum / Uli Jon Roth) completed the line-up read more...

This international group continues to deliver a super consistent output since their debut in 2007 and 'Trinity' is as always, a result of masterful collaboration of expert musicians. Musically, it's a smart bridge between traditional heavy metal and melodic hard rock, a perfect combination rolls in to appeal both parties.

'Trinitas Sanctus' served as a prologue intro to this album and the title track kicks in with a striking rhythm and when you heard the beautiful bridge and superb chorus, you know this is a winning track. 'Saints of Tomorrow' didn't disappoint, still a powerful tune, and 'No Holy Man' which was the first single leaked out by the band, shows a duet with James LaBrie, a good track but nowhere near the better tracks here. You can also spot the DT style inside the midtempo composition.

To soothe up the excessive metallic exploration, 'Guardian Angel' was here to calm the storm. A beautiful power ballad that's done well. Later you'll also encounter 'Children of The Tide', I almost think it's another slow ballad because it started that way, but then it burst out big, so apparently 'Guardian Angel' is the sole ballad here. Two awesome tracks to follow are 'Can't Fool The Devil' and 'Dare To Be Different', 'Jerusalem Sleeps' and 'Black Widow' (with Andi Deris) seemed to wander to the power metal territory and I hear a dark vibe in them, both are okay but not catching up with the rest.

Eden's Curse also managed to put up a stunning cover of Dio classic, 'Rock N Roll Children'. I don't know why but they sure can connect the string of other songs to this one and you can feel it's a unity. The bonus track, 'Never The Sinner', also still live up my expectation, check out the mindblowing riffs! Mixing and mastering was handled by Dennis Ward so no doubt you'll get a high production quality here.

Shame that Michael Eden eventually left the band soon after it's released. I hope they will continue this project and find a better replacement because after three strong albums, I know they still have some great things in their arsenal for a monstrous follow-up. 85%

Saints of tomorrow...

Genre: melodic metal

Eden's Curse deliver catchy melodic metal firmly rooted in the classic metal of the 1980s and with a slight stylistic similarity with late 80s and early 90s Queensrÿche, and bursts of progressiveness here and there.

"Trinity" may appear a bit retro, but that's not a problem to me, as we are dealing with high quality music - and it captures some of the magic of 80s metal, which disappeared from the genre after the grunge wave of the 90s. So, it is really cool to hear a band who know how to make good use of the elements of 80s metal.

The compositions are perhaps formulaic, but I still think that the songwriting should be praised, as main composers Logue and Eden really know how to make their music melodic and catchy, and then their vocal melodies are just awesome. They also know how to make use of recognizability without ripping off other sings (for instance, "Saints of Tomorrow" reminds be a bit of Coheed and Cambria).

The level of musicianship is very high, and especially Thorsten Koehne, the guitarist, is very virtuosic, mastering both shredding, neoclassicism and more emotive playing - and the guitar solos never take over from the rest of the music.

This is instant classic metal.
