New Eden – “Solving For X”

New Eden – “Solving For X” (Pure Steel Records)

New Eden is a US melodic speed metal band started in ’93 by Steel Prophet / Axehammer guitarist Horacio Colmenares. In their early days they had some well known US Metal vocalists in their line-up like Steel Prophet’s Rick Mythiasin (who also sang on their last studio album “Stagnant Procession”), Michael Grant of Crescent Shield, and Helstar’s James Rivera, so it comes as no surprise that they sound like them (if less operatic). Fast guitar riffing mixed with classical virtuoso soloing, high end melodic vocals and massive amounts of double bass drumming define songs like ‘Flames For Hades’, ‘Watcher’ and ‘Searching The Loss’. Despite the technical album title, and not withstanding the superb musicianship, Colmenares et al continue this classic US metal genre in the fine style.
