AS WE ALL KNOW, MUSIC IS AT IT'S BEST WHEN IT ADDRESSES IT'S LISTENERS AT A NUMBER OF LEVELS. AND THAT'S PRECISELY WHAT EDENBRIDGE DO: the Austrian melodic metal act's material always features - along with it's symphonic qualities - an important emotional-spiritual side. This applies not only to the band's thirteen recordings to date, but also to their latest album Dynamind, scheduled for release on Steamhammer/SPV on 25 October 2019. The atmospherically dense compositions, directed once again mainly by creative mastermind/multi-instrumentalist Lanvall and vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher, combine melodies and grooves, toughness and sensitivity, emotions and intellect, spirit and the subconscious mind. Which better way to document this talent than with a programmatic play on words such as Dynamind? "There's an interesting quote which summarises the deeper meaning of the album title," Sabine Edelsbacher explains. "It says: 'The muscle of consciousness develops through the stress ratio of opposites.'" You should allow this thesis to work on you because it perfectly describes Edenbridge's holistic approach on Dynamind.
