New Eden - Obscure Master Plan (Remastered) (CD)
Release Date: 08/05/08
Re-release of the group's second LP, one of the best US power metal albums of the 90s.
When it comes to power metal, it's not easy to come up with an original formula that would conjoin pure heaviness, catchy melodies and top-notch musical skills. Fortunately, New Eden is one of these bands that manage to get the job done and deliver a prime selection of tasty riffs and memorable vocals. This re-release of the group's second LP, 'Obscure Master Plan', shows exactly how a modern power album should sound! The ten tracks range from heavy metal anthems to thrashing monstrosities and progressive elegies. Colmenares and his group managed to capture the retro sound of 80's heavy metal and confront it with a truly modern approach, backed with some amazing guitar riffs and impressive vocal lines. Easily comparable to classic releases by Iced Earth, Symphony X or Sanctuary, 'Obscure Master Plan' is definitely one of the best US power metal albums of the 90s. New digipak edition limited to 2000 copies.
