Edenbridge Announces New Album

Edenbridge will enter the studio in June to record 9th full-length album "The Great Momentum." The album will be released by Steamhammer/SPV in February of 2017.

Lanvall comments: "A full year of songwriting and arranging lies past me and I am really looking forward to the actual start of the recordings now. After the quiet and melancholic debut 'Everflow' of the acoustic project Voiciano and the huge 6 DVD documentation 'A Decade And A Half... The History So Far' about the first 15 years of Edenbridge it was time to focus on new, symphonic and bombastic sound territories again!

"I am extremely happy with the new songs, cause they continue our trademark style on one hand, but integrate a lot of new facets in our sound on the other. The music seems to be heavier than on our predecessor 'The Bonding' and the orchestra parts and choruses are even more concise and bombastic than in the past! More...

Edenbridge Reveals New Album Details

It's now more than a decade since Edenbridge first created a stir with the launch of debut "Sunrise In Eden" back in 2000. Latest album "The Bonding" sees the group from Austria underline its status in melodic metal and puts an end to the group's creative hiatus of almost three difficult years.

"We had to come to terms with a number of personal setbacks, which is why the production of the album took longer than originally scheduled," explains guitarist and main songwriter Lanvall, who among other things suffered the loss of his father due to suicide. In addition, Edenbridge underwent an unexpected line-up change: bassist Simon Holzknecht had to be replaced by Wolfgang Rothbauer (Disbelief, Zombie Inc.).

"The initial ideas were developed as early as 2010, immediately after the release of Solitaire, but due to our private trials and tribulations it took us until autumn 2012 to conclude the recordings for our new album," Lanvall looks back at taxing months marked by one ambitious goal: to complement the new album by a real orchestra in order to support the material's symphonic direction. "Our style has always had an unmistakably symphonic quality," says Lanvall, "so the only question was: how do we finance a big orchestra?" More...

Crystal Viper Comments On Festival Cancellation

Crystal Viper has issued the following statement about canceling the band's appearance at the Princess From Hell 2013 festival:

"Sad news from our booking agency: the Crystal Viper show at Princess From Hell Festival planned for March 3 in Buenos Aires has been canceled.

"We don't have further news about other bands and we don't know if the festival will happen (we just know Edenbridge canceled as well) - but we know it was impossible to contact the promoter for the last couple of months, and he also didn't fulfill any contract obligations, didn't book the flights, nor even started to sell tickets for the festival.

"We are very sorry, especially as it's the first ever Crystal Viper show that has been canceled. We are doing our best to visit Argentina & other South American countries this, promoters: get in touch!"

Edenbridge also recently commented via Facebook: "Buenos Aires show cancelled! Unfortunately we had to cancel our show in Buenos Aires scheduled for March 1, 2013. The promoter Antonio Ramon Maza from AKA Fictionmetalpress has not fulfilled any parts of the contract. The concert seemingly wasn't announced anywhere, there were no tickets for sale and flight tickets and advance payment was not provided right in time. We are very sorry for our fans in Argentina."

Edenbridge Posts Band Update, New Album Expected

Austrian symphonic power metal band Edenbridge broke its silence of the last year and posted an update on the band's Facebook page. Keyboardist/guitarist Lanvall posted the following update:

"The past year brought a big challenge and many changes for nearly all in the band, personally and professionally, so Edenbridge had to step back into the second row temporarily. Furthermore, I was struck by a family tragedy through the suicide of my father, which I had to come to terms with and still have to. Moments, where nothing is as it was before.

"These events of course will have a strong impact on our forthcoming album which is scheduled for 2012. I believe that this is going to be the most intensive album of our history. 55 minutes of music and 6 lyrics are already written and I often have goosebumps listening to the songs. Furthermore, I am working on the longest epic track so far, which will be between 15 to 20 minutes. So stay tuned for the album !"

Edenbridge also confirmed its appearance at the Castle Rock Festival on July 7, 2012 in Mühlheim an der Ruhr, Germany. More...
