With an incredibly successful back catalogue of ten records under their belt, and a recent signing with powerhouse label AFM Records, Austria’s symphonic metal force EDENBRIDGE has announced the first details about their upcoming, new album. Shangri-La will be released on August 26, 2022 and is featuring nine epic tracks, seeing the band to deliver their most diverse album to date!
Shangri-La takes the dedicated EDENBRIDGE listener on a musical ride into the realms of finest symphonic metal. The band’s eleventh studio album unleashes a sophisticated range of compositions along with an intoxicating and bombastic sound atmosphere. Despite constantly high quality standards and as the new offering proves, EDENBRIDGE continually expands their musical expression from album to album without abandoning their trademarks. This time, the band has created a fine balance between emotionally magical moments, an ever-present mystical atmosphere and heavy, fast-paced riffage.
Today, they are presenting a first track taken of Shangri-La, alongside a lyric video for ‘Somewhere Else But Here’! Says lead vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher: “‘Somewhere Else But Here’ is about our phantasy, that takes us on a journey into a world we would like be different. In some extent, we also use it to write a part of our book of life, which lies at the bottom of the lake and life leafs through it.“
