Edensong Streaming New Song "The Atman Apocalypse"

As "Years In The Garden Of Years," the second full-length from NYC-based progressive ensemble Edensong, nears release through Laser's Edge at the end of the month, a new single from the record has been issued.

Check out "The Atman Apocalypse" below, which features a brief guest appearance by Adrian Belew (King Crimson, Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads, etc.)

Considered by the members of Edensong to be "the craziest thing they've ever written," the mammoth track consumes over ten minutes, delivering some of the most bombastic elements of the entire album.

The band offers, "'The Atman Apocalypse' is a cornerstone track on 'Years In The Garden Of Years' and the climax of the song-cycle that makes up most of the album. It takes so many of the musical themes from across the record and fuses them into the most brutal and 'proggy' thing we've probably ever written.

"It's actually based on a string quartet that Tony (our drummer) wrote a few years back, which Edensong then spun out into an epic rock tune. It's even got a cameo from Adrian Belew, by way of a chance encounter. We always jokingly imagined Adrian's voice in this particular moment of the song, so it's pretty awesome (and hilarious) that it's actually there. Listen carefully or you'll miss it."
