Brilliant melodic rockers under the microscope

Formed in 2006, multinational melodic metal band Eden’s Curse have risen from their humble beginnings as an internet studio project to a fully blown touring outfit with four studio releases and a double live album behind them.

During their nine years together they have managed to win over audiences wherever they have played, whilst collecting praise from luminary peers such as legendary Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson and members of Prog Metal giants Dream Theater, who personally invited them to open for them on their UK tour.

Fronted by Serbian powerhouse vocalist Nikola Mijic and MelodicRock.com’s 2013 Guitarist of the Year, German virtuoso, Thorsten Koehne, Eden’s Curse also features founding member and principle songwriter Paul Logue on bass, drummer John Clelland (Code Of Silence) and esteemed keyboarder, the brain child of Power Quest and formerly Dragonforce, Steve Williams. With the 5 piece stronger than ever, Eden’s Curse latest studio album ‘Symphony Of Sin’ has been another triumph for the band.
In May 2014 the band undertook their debut headline club tour of the UK in support of the album ‘Symphony Of Sin’. Their seven date run culminated in a spectacular closing show at The Underworld in London; receiving praise from the press, media and fans alike.

The outstanding reviews prompted the bands label, AFM Records, to propose the recording of the groups debut live album, which was recorded in Glasgow to a full capacity audience. At over 100 mins, 18 songs, covering all four studio records and spanning two CD’s, ‘Live With The Curse’ is the perfect introduction to the music of Eden’s Curse. It’s sonic dynamite production, by the bands long time engineer, Pink Cream 69 and Unisonic bassist, Dennis Ward (Ten, Allen/Lande, Angra, Krokus) and iconic artwork by Thomas Ewerhard (Avantasia, Edguy, Jorn) demonstrate the high quality output we’ve come to expect from Eden’s Curse.

Whilst 2015 has seen Eden’s Curse locked away in the studio for pre-production of their yet to be titled fifth album, the band have found time to tour Germany and Holland (with special guests Freedom Call) and appear at Väsby Rock Festival (Sweden) in July. Previously Eden’s Curse have toured with Dream Theater, Stratovarious, Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G’s band Firewind and Alestorm, plus appearanced at major rock festivals such as Bloodstock Open Air (UK), Hard Rock Hell (UK), Firefest (UK), PPM Fest (BE), Road To Rock (BE), Dokk’em Open Air (NL) and Melodic Rock Fest (US).
