UK DJ DE’ATH REVIEWS EDEN’S ‘THE EDGE OF WINTER’ ALBUM…. thanks to the resident DJ @ Black Veil, Leeds, Darklands, York and The Haunted Crypt, York UK for his review of ‘The Edge of Winter’. Read on….
‘The Edge of Winter’ is EDEN’s first full release in two decades. Recorded and produced in Melbourne’s famed Toyland Studios by Adam Calaitzis.
The album opens with Death Of A Diamond. When I heard this track for the first time it was one of those wow moments. I was surprised at the exceptional male vocals which for me rub shoulders with Brendan Perry, sounding slightly more dulcet. The vocals of Sean remind me of the great singer Frankie Laine, who was famed for his western film songs such as Ghost Riders In The Sky, Rawhide etc. One of those voices that will burn into the memory. Now I’ve mentioned it, this track could easily fit in a western blockbuster about a lone rider, it’s that good! Epic layers of shimmering and rivers driven guitars build a monumental soundscape, fantastic lyrics. Love this song!
Lost & Found – a different musical arrangement adds a slightly more gothic, ethereal feel. Great vocals again -fantastic song! Girl With Violin has a more swirly shoegaze guitar feel with a waltzlike drive. Love it! All The Time In The World – reminds musically like a cross between All About Eve, Early Balaam and the Angel and The Church – yes it’s that good! Topped off with the perfect vocals. Great lyrics too. Suanitriade – this instrumental has a slightly Arabian feel has the musical atmosphere of Dead Can Dance with a splash of Twin Peaks. Nice!
The Edge Of Winter – what a great title track and another example of why Sean does rub shoulders with Brendan Perry in this epic vocal delivery. Pure ethereal atmospherics akin to Dead Can Dance. Love it! Returning – more gothic with a hint of slower early Mission mixed with a Banshees ballard – lovely! The perfect vocal again.
Perfume Garden – the perfect dark dream pop song to ignite the gothic dancefloor. Epic! December -If you are a fan of The Rose of Avalanche or Salvation you will like this song. Paisley goth. Love it! Great Vocals too!
Fryerstown – has the grandiose feel of a sped up Joy Division’s ‘Atmosphere’ perforated with an Edgelike guitar burst. Breathtaking! Sky Above – is again very much aimed at the dancefloor. Musically a fusion between Dead Can Dance and The Banshees a great gothic tribalistic masterpiece. Love it! Winter – another instrumental with an epic feel.
Crank your amp up to max and let the plaster come down. Shame I missed the gig in Leipzig, so I might be I have put in a trip to Oz to see them. Yet another contender for album of the year to my ears.’
