Edenbridge – Dynamind21st October 2019 0 By John Deaux
Symphonic metallers Edenbridge return on the 25th November with their brand new album Dynamind.
Dynamind doesn’t break from their winning formula, although it does expand on it slightly.
The lead single and Irish folk tinged On The Other Side, doesn’t really give a full representation of the album at all. Although invoking their inner Mike Oldfield, this is the weakest track on the album.
There are some wonderful full on power symphonic material (Where Oceans Collide, The Edge OF Your World). The obligatory ballad, (Dynamind) and the out and out epic The Last Of His Kind.
All through this 55 minute, 10 track album, Sabines vocal is amazing. She is a master of being evocative, sultry and dominating all in one. Sabine is one the most formidable female vocalists around right now.
The cinematic musicianship from multi instrumentalist Lanvall is outstanding. The use of the Dulcimer, Mandolin and Keys are stunning. Mix that in with Dominiks incendiary guitar tone with the rumble of Stefans bass and Johannes drums, there’s something magical about them.
You can really hear how talented those musicians are on the bonus instrumental CD, which sadly doesn’t come with the vinyl version of Dynamind.
Overall this is a classic sounding Edenbridge album that should sound huge live.
If you’re a fan of the band or cinematic, symphonic metal (Rhapsody, Kamelot, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Dakesis) etc, then you’re not going to be disappointed with this album.
