studio album from Symphonic Epic Metal band Edenbridge and a fine one indeed. Since the year 2000 Edenbridge
has delivered first class Symphonic Metal and now they are better
brand new release titled “The Grand Design” is in my humble opinion
the best album they have ever released. There is more of every thing…
more Guitars, more melody and more Epic. It is enjoyable to listen to
this bombastic release and in my opinion Edenbridge
are doing a way better job than on “Shine” (2004).
take a listen to the two long Epics “Terra Nova” and the title track
“The Grand Design” with huge and might choruses (up to 64 voices)
and you know what I mean. Especially the title track “The Grand
Design” is fantastic. This song has everything.
would describe this song as; An Epic, Progressive, Bombastic, Symphonic,
Classical, Metal song with a beautiful melody and a huge and very
memorable chorus. I rather not go into details but this is a first class
song that really shows Edenbridge’s
lady Sabine Edelsbacher also matured; her voice is more expressive and
intensive and her singing is more beautiful than ever. “The Grand
Design” is produced by Lanvall and cover art work and booklet design
is done by Thomas Ewerhard.
limited Edition Digibook (Ecolbook) comes with an exclusive 20 page
