Edens Curse - Time To Breathe (Single Review)


EDEN’S CURSE are delighted to announce Italian vocalist Marco Sandron as the new voice of “The Curse” with the release of their brand new single and promotional video “Time To Breathe”.

Sandron previously sang for Italian Progressive Metal act Pathosray, who released their self-titled debut in 2007, and their sophomore release “Sunless Skies” in 2009. That same year he also contributed lead vocals to French Symphonic Metal outfit Fairyland’s “Score To A New Beginning” album.

“In true Eden’s Curse fashion, we found Marco on the Internet. I was browsing through various videos on You Tube, related to some of my favourite singers, and I found a cover he recorded of a Symphony X song and simply I was blown away!” said bassist Paul Logue.

“I just had to find out more about him. I then discovered he sang for Pathosray and managed to track down their albums, and I found his vocal performances on those records staggering. I managed to track him down on Facebook and made contact and I was delighted to receive an instant reply. We began the audition process and eventually I flew out to Italy at the beginning of January to meet and record with Marco and conclude the deal” carries on Logue.

Keyboard player Alessandro Del Vecchio, who mixed and mastered the new single, added “Marco’s mix of clean, aggressive and high-pitched tones instantly turned me into a fan of his vocal abilities. He has an outstanding talent in his craft and his technique is brilliant. He has the pipes to sing whatever he wants and whatever we ask him. I'm totally satisfied with our choice. Marco really deserves to have his voice heard and I believe Eden's Curse is the band with which to make this happen”.

The band return in style, showcasing Sandron’s sumptuous vocals and the continuation of the signature Eden’s Curse sound, with the release of their brand new single “Time To Breathe” which has been made available as a free download.

Accompanying the single release is a brand new promotional video, which was filmed at Sky Park in Glasgow, Scotland, at the end of January with Simon Jake Gillespie of Music Video Scotland in the Director’s chair. “It was imperative to us that not only did the fan base get to hear what Marco sounded like, but also what he looked like fronting Eden’s Curse” explained Logue.

The band are also thrilled to announce, not one but two, festival appearances, when they play PPM Fest in Belgium on Saturday 7th April alongside Accept, Sonata Artica and Evergrey and then Dokkem Open Air festival in Holland on Saturday 30th June alongside Arch Enemy and Jon Oliva’s Pain, meaning the new look Eden’s Curse line up is only seven weeks away from performing live together for the first time.

New boy, Sandron, could not hide his delight “I'm very proud to be the new singer of Eden's Curse! This band is great. The guys are simply awesome and a very talented group of musicians. There are no egos, just respect and true collaboration and we are working together simply to reach our one true goal – creating great music! I simply cannot wait to rock some stages and meet the wonderful Curse fan base that the guys tell me so much about, as well as completing songs for our new album. Yes, I'm very excited because the new songs we are writing are very powerful, melodic as hell and typically Eden’s Curse”.




A great track full of melody and that classic euro power metal touch.
