I've been looking through all sorts of the more Gothic, melodic metal type genre that I recently discovered. I stumbled upon Within Temptation one day and I've been hooked on the style ever since. Only problem is that it is hard to find bands like this with what I would personally consider good lyrics. I'm more biased toward the more positive well written lyrics. This band seems to have it all, awesome guitar riffs, no lack of musical talent. I love the melody of the piano in the background of the heavy double bass style riffs.
One critique I do have, although, I dont believe that the singer is using her wonderful vocals to their fullest potential. She has a lovely voice, it just seems that she lacks the emotion that could very well put her over the top. But all that aside, awesome album, and I really hope to see more releases from this band in the future.

I've put off writing this review for a long, long time; I'm not the best writer, and continuously worried my attempts at wordsmithing would fail and backfire. But thanks to one reviewer's "it wasn't what I expected," it's sat at a low score for too long.

Winter in Eden's debut album is simply spectacular. Nearly every track has remained at the top of my playlist for MONTHS. Despite literally hundreds of replays, the novelty and enjoyment have yet to wear off.

Most of the tracks in Awakening share a common feel - they're fairly fast-paced, but with a more subtle and underplayed sound than most listeners of Gothic metal may be used to. But despite the more indirect route, you can't listen to a song like "Inside" without feeling the uncontrollable urge to DO something. Vicky Johnson's instantly-recognizable voice flows within the instruments rather than overpowering them, but loses no authority or potency in the act.

The vocals are 100% clean, thus suiting folks who are fans of the sounds of Within Temptation, Delain, Autumn, Unsun, and/or We Are The Fallen.

If you're looking for something a bit new (yet still comfortably familiar) and of high quality, I urge you: Give Winter In Eden a try. Since you've read this far, I can promise you you won't regret it.

I'm terrible at writing reviews but I had to write one for this CD. I am fairly new to this genre of music and am still learning about new bands, but as soon as I heard the first song from this band I was hooked. The music is just fantastic and from the opening chords of Oblivian it just grabbed me and I really don't know how else to describe it. The lyrics are very strong and brilliantly written yet unlike many songs I've heard, they are not so overly poetic that they make no sense. All of the songs really speak to me. Especially Cry and Awakenings II-Unspoken.

Vicky Johnson has to have one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard. Very rich and powerful and totally unique. I very much recommend this CD to everyone. I know, not a great review, but it's from the heart.

I stmbled across this band a few weeks ago while searching for a different Symphonic Metal band to listen to. All I can say is Wow, This band is totally amazing!!! I highly recommend "Winter in Eden", you will get fantastic instrumentation that ranges from heavy guitars, to keyboards and piano, as well as beautifully clear female vocals, and an added bonus....no harsh male vocals or groweling. So far, "Winter in Eden" is my best find of the year, I look forward to more music from this band in the future. Fans of this style of music, take a chance on this one, I think you will love it as much as I do.
