The Eden Shadow album is currently in the mixing stages.
Here is the first snippet to be released. More will be revealed in the coming months.
2015 has been a very challenging, intense and ultimately rewarding year for Eden Shadow. All centrally involved around writing the second album, and with the departure of Tom Burgess, there has been quite a significant transitory phase into the next creative steps.
The second album has been tough but profoundly rewarding experience and I am proud of it. It is a grande and ambitious record that took some real determination to get through writing and arranging it. However, in the fall of this year, the majority of the album was recorded featuring new drummer Aled Lloyd and a very talented team of musicians, engineers and artists. Things are now moving towards post-production with a release date set for 2016.
All I can say for now is that I look forward to the finishing stages of this album in the coming weeks, and sharing the music, the concepts and stories with you in the not too distant future.
Happy New Year,
It is just a week away before we head into the studio to record Eden Shadow album 2 and as mentioned previously, this album will be featuring a new drummer.
I would like to warmly welcome Aled Lloyd to Eden Shadow.

This year has been rather busy musically speaking with being involved in two shamelessly self indulgent projects writing two shamelessly self indulgent albums with The Kinky Wizzards and of course Eden Shadow.
Regarding the latter, the second album has been without doubt, the most challenging, ambitious music I’ve yet to compose and throughout the year it has taken month after month to carefully outline the detail that each track has (as well as practising things that I couldn’t initially play!) to get it ready for final recording.
From next month, the album is scheduled for recording, mixing and mastering and will have a release date set for early next year, with a single to be released a little before then.
A couple of further updates, this album will be featuring a new drummer who will be announced in the next couple of weeks. There is a plethora of talented individuals I have the real privilege of having in the team for this record, of which one or two names even may be very familiar with the older prog fans. I am desperate to spread the news but will abstain for the time being!
In the meantime, you can expect regular updates regarding the progress of the album with details to be revealed over the next few months.
Looking forward to sharing the new music with you!
