Editorial Reviews

It s now more than a decade since Edenbridge first created a stir with the launch of their debut Sunrise In Eden back in 2000. What presented itself as a young but already immensely talented band has evolved into one of the genre s most independent acts. Their latest album The Bonding sees the group from Austria underline their exceptional status in melodic metal and puts an end to their creative hiatus of almost three difficult years.

Thanks to a major joint effort, the band succeeded in bringing to the studio the Klangvereinigung Orchestra of Vienna under the direction of Georg Luksch to cap the atmospheric and at the same time dynamic songs on The Bonding.

The Bonding has turned into the band s most haunting and ambitioned album so far, including truly impressive numbers such as Mystic River , Alight A New Tomorrow , Shadows Of My Memory and more or less as the grand finale the 15 minute title track, a memorable duet by Sabine Edelsbacher and Erik Martensson (WET, Eclipse).

The first studio album since 2010

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad... July 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Just bought and went through the Bonding, and it's not a BAD album, per se, but I'm a MUCH bigger fan of the diverse, creative, and original works of Edenbridge's earlier works (Shine, Arcana, Sunrise in Eden.) The last few albums have taken more of a traditional European metal sound, which isn't a bad thing, but makes them more comparable to bands like Within Temptation. This album keeps going along that route, and is a good album, but didn't personally move me the way the earlier works did.

If you are an Edenbridge fan and thought Solitaire was their best yet, you'll love The Bonding, but if you've stuck with this band for awhile, this will probably be an ok album to you. For me, it's not their best, but its still better than the top 40 garbage that makes US airwaves these days...

Songs improve as album moves on. Not my favorite, but nice work on its own. Hard to improve on past works.

Edenbridge is one of many bands I’ve been meaning to check out for years. And after diving through their extensive back catalog in June, I felt prepared to tackle the long-running Austrian symphonic metal band’s eighth studio album, The Bonding, for a CD review at a metal webzine. And did I enjoy the challenge!

Edenbridge scaled back on the metal this time to let the orchestral arrangements, lush soundscapes, and Sabine Edelbacher’s regal voice take center stage. The shift made sense, given the personal circumstances that inspired The Bonding’s lyrical themes of life, loss, and spirituality. Not to mention the live orchestra is what I love most about this album. Very few symphonic metal bands (except Nightwish, Within Temptation, and Stream of Passion) use live strings and wind instruments on their studio albums these days because of the expense. Hearing the real stuff on The Bonding adds a rich, film-score quality that truly makes symphonic metal, well, symphonic. My only word of caution about The Bonding is about its slow pace. Although the ballads are exquisite and contribute to the album's spiritual, wistful tone, there aren't enough uptempo tracks to balance things out. Otherwise, if you loved MyEarthDream or were disappointed by Solitaire, The Bonding is another reason to keep on loving Edenbridge's music.
