Edenbridge will release a second compilation album

Edenbridge will release “The Chronicles Of Eden Part 2” on January 15th, 2021.  The 150 minute double album cover the big range of symphonic metal sounds that Edenbridge has delivered for 20 years. The first “The Chronicles Of Eden” retrospective was released in 2007.

The tracks selected from the studio albums 5-10 were chosen after fans voted for their favorite tracks off each album. „The voting was not a major surprise and is more or less identical to the songs, we would also have chosen”, said Lanvall. “Therefore 4 tracks of each album could be covered along with some older all out of print bonus tracks.” There are also 2 new recorded acoustic versions of the hits “Higher” and “Paramount” featured, among the Easter Version 2020 of the song “Dynamind”, re-recorded by Sabine Edelsbacher. Lanvall: „It was extremely fun to turn Higher into a nearly jazzy piano/vocal version showing a different side of us, formerly unknown. Paramount was one of the absolute fan favorites and so it was near to transform that song too and let it shine in a new light.”

The atmospheric artwork was inspired by a vision, singer Sabine had, linking the spiritual awakening to a Aurora Borealis. Sabine: „After an own spiritual experience a couple of years ago and without an explainable reason, I felt a deep connection to the name Aurora. Subsequently I concerned myself with what the name stands for and relating it now to a heart quality, which might lead us to higher consciousness. Especially when there is a lot of negativity in the room, a possibility for transformation exists, through recognition and acceptance, respectively the self-responsibility for one’s own feelings. Edenbridge always followed this path and especially now it is even more important to get into the own truthfulness.”

The graphic direction of the cover artwork was again in the hands of drummer Johannes Jungreithmeier, who developed into the creative visual pole of the band since his entrance into the band in 2016. All tracks were produced by Lanvall and mixed by Threshold mastermind Karl Groom, with whom the band has been collaborating for 15 years now.
