AFM Records (Germany), Metal Mayhem Music (North America) and Spiritual Beast (Japan) have announced the return of multi-national melodic metallers EDEN'S CURSE and their sophomore studio release, "The Second Coming".
Once again production duties were handled by PINK CREAM 69 bassist and producer extraordinaire Dennis Ward (ANGRA, KROKUS, SILENT FORCE, ALLEN/LANDE) as the band have truly "upped the ante" in terms of song writing, performance and production. Assisting Michael Eden (vocals), Thorsten Koehne (guitar), Paul Logue (bass), Pete Newdeck (drums) and Ferdy Doernberg (keyboards) in creating this huge wall of sound is none other than the voice of TNT, STARBREAKER, WESTWORLD and now a solo artist, Tony Harnell, who sings backing vocals on the whole album. Former RAINBOW and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN frontman and current CORNERSTONE and EMPIRE vocalist Doogie White once again returns to the aid the Curse Choir along with the ever-present Carsten Schulz of EVIDENCE ONE, MIDNITE CLUB and Roger Staffelbach's ANGEL OF EDEN fame. Also featured is vocalist Pamela Moore, best known for her performance as Sister Mary on QUEENSRŸCHE's 1988 epic release "Operation: Mindcrime" and 2006's sequel "Operation: Mindcrime II", who duets with Michael Eden on the power metal anthem "Angels & Demons".
Frontman Michael Eden comments: "With the assistance of our personal graphic artist Thomas Ewerhard (ASIA, EDGUY, AVANTASIA, JORN, MASTERPLAN) and the amazing talent of his photographer of choice Steffi Veenstra (DORO, TANKARD, VANDEN PLAS), I believe EDEN'S CURSE are ready to ignite even the biggest melodic naysayer. My boys and I will deliver an ass kicking few have seen in a decade or more for our type of music, and that I'll lay our reputation on. Trust me when I say... EDEN'S CURSE will deliver the goods like very few can in 2008. There is good, there is great and then there is freaking amazing! You be the judge. The music will do the talkin' in October!!"
