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.
