Eden's Lie

Open Your Eyes

Album review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio

 

 

 

On a usual daily basis I am known to enjoy the extreme side of metal- thrash, speed, death, doom and a healthy dose of glam/sleaze rock. And yet my sidekick here at Boston Rock Radio has been tossing some really badass hard rock bands my way that I have taken a liking to.

 

From Manchester, New Hampshire is Eden’s Lie. The band members are Jeff Richards (vocals, acoustic guitar), Robby Gagnon (guitar), Jimmy Greene (bass) and Kevin Whitten (drums). The band has been rocking the scene since 1995 and have shared stages with Saliva, Trixter, Joe Lynn Turner, Bret Michaels, Quiet Riot and Warrant. They are definitely not cookie cutter; indeed they have a raw appeal that is both modern rock infused with the beloved nostalgia of the 80s era.

 

“Crossfire" has kickass power chords rippling where you can almost feel the flighty fingers moving on the fretboard. Jeff’s vocals have immediate face-melting impact. “Open Your Eyes “ has a bluesy/prog guitar intro with vocals that are classic hard rock with a certain indefinable something. “Faithfully" (Yes, a cover of the Journey song) is okay..I do like the Zakk flair guitar sound added to it but I'm tough to please when it comes to remakes. Other songs like “Bitter Inside" and “Aligned" proceed with classy finesse and excellent presentation.

 

This is an excellent album that digs its claws in immediately. There are grooves, riffs, rhythms and pure passion. It's the warm sound of both a band playing together and playing off of each other.
