Edenbridge is a Austrian Symphonic Metal band formed originally around the turn of the century, and due to having to overcome some major personal life obstacles, The Bonding is Edenbridge’s first album in 3+ years. This release centers on the general themes of birth, growth, memories, and reflection, and as a result of fan financial support, the band hired the Klangvereinigung Orchestra of Vienna to provide the symphonic backdrop. Vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher’s performance is outstanding, if not soothing and mesmerizing, but the only drawback with The Bonding is that its vibe tends to come across as depressing rather than uplifting.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
