The Austrian symphonic metal act Edenbridge featuring vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher spent more than a year working on their latest album. Now guitarist/composer Lanvall has announced the release date at last: The Great Momentum will be available on February 17, 2017.
Today EDENBRIDGE releases the first single and lyric video from The Great Momentum. Watch the video for “Shiantara” HERE.
As its predecessor The Bonding (2013), The Great Momentum was also produced by Lanvall and again mixed by Karl Groom (Threshold) at his Thin Ice Studio in Surrey, England. The mastering was taken care of by Mika Jussila (Stratovarius, among others) at the renowned Finnvox Studios. Among the guests featuring on the album are vocalist Erik Martensson (Eclipse, W.E.T, Nordic Union) and the Junge Philharmonie Freistadt orchestra. In addition, Edenbridge will introduce on their upcoming release their new drummer Johannes Jungreithmeier, whose powerful drumming has contributed to the recording’s great dynamism and who is set to tour Austria and Vietnam with Edenbridge next February and March.
Lanvall: “We’re really happy to present our toughest and at the same time most bombastic album in The Great Momentum. I am confident that my enthusiasm for this record will be confirmed by our fans’ reactions.”
“The Great Momentum” will be released in the USA and Canada on February 17th, 2017 through SPV/Steamhammer as 2CD digi (bonus CD with instrumental versions), 2LP gatefold (golden vinyl), download and stream.
