Nancy, France, or isn’t known for many hard rock and heavy metal acts. EdenSands looks to change that with their new release Living Kills. In their music, I hear bits of progressive and maybe a dash of power metal, but no question about it, EdenSands are a heavy metal act. The guitar styling is very similar to mid 80’s heavy metal, and I hear an Iron Maiden influence in the music. The vocals of Stefan Tudela are often high pitched. His voice seems to soar above the music more often than not. His voice has a strong accent which is quite noticeable.
There is a moment on this album, where EdenSands treads into Screamo territory on the song “Scream”. I don’t care for this style, but this may be a song for modern rock fans to get into.
I kept looking for some stand out tracks on this album, and I found those in the rocking tune, “Run”, and the ballad “From Dark to Light”. These are easily the best songs on the album. In the case of the song “From Dark to Light”, Tudela’s voice is showcased well. After hearing this song, I think his voice may be better suited for more acoustic based rock, than metal the tunes of EdenSands. For this listener, his high pitched voice doesn’t match up well with the heavy tunes of Living Kills. The band itself is quite good, and this album shows a lot of potential for future success. EdenSands will be a band to keep an eye on the future.
