From guitarist Stu Marshall: “Steve was one of the sought-after performers I tracked down and thankfully he agreed to be involved in the project. The track needed to be heavy while retaining the melodic flair that Steve is known for; as a fan, that’s what I wanted to hear from him. This concept is one of the great things about EOE: the singers all compose their own lyrics and melodies, providing a window into what makes many of them as great as they are.”

A 30-Piece orchestral score / 8 singers / one album: Reborn in Fire.
Empires of Eden is very proud to announce Zak Stevens as one of the feature artists on the upcoming album Reborn in Fire. After rising to legendary status as lead singer for Savatage and Circle II Circle as well as Machines of Grace, Zak is featured on a full-length song on the album.
Zak’s vocals were recorded in Tampa, Florida by Mark Prator, who engineered the Savatage albums Edge Of Thorns and Handful of Rain. The album was mixed and mastered at Frontiers Studio in Sydney, Australia.
From Zak: “It’s an understatement to say that I had an amazing time working on the new Empires of Eden CD. Stu Marshall is a super-talented recording musician who really knows how to get the best performances out of the artists he works with. Stu asked me to write my own lyrics and vocal melodies to the song I appeared on (‘Prognatus Ut Obscurum’). That’s exactly how I like to do things, and that really allowed me to bring out more of myself on the composition. As a result I was able to give an all-round stronger performance, there’s no doubt about it. Working with Stu was a fantastic experience for me. His vision for the overall spectrum of the album was stunning. I learned a lot… and that’s what it’s all about in the world of music and artist collaboration.”
The new album from Empires of Eden, Reborn in Fire will feature some of the world’s most respected heavy metal voices, including the already announced, Mike Vescera. Reborn in Fire is set for release in June 2010 through 7Hard Records. Further announcements on the guests will continue in the coming weeks.

Mike’s incredible voice has appeared on multiple albums for Yngwie Malmsteen and with Japanese metal giants Loudness. Mike is featured on a full length song on the album entitled ‘Of Light and Shadows’.
From guitarist Stu Marshall: “Being such a huge fan of Mike’s voice, I wanted to create an aggressive, dynamic song to match his style and attack. Add to that the huge influence of Yngwie Malmsteen and Akira Takahashi (Loudness) and the pressure was definitely on for me.”
