|Eden's Curse Paul
Logue gives us the lowdown on the new songs ...
days yet, but from most of the press feedback I've read,
this appears to be amongst the very top favourites on the
new record - with some even hailing it as one of the best
songs we have ever done!
always our plan to kick each album off in style, and that is
exactly what we have done here. Big riffs, huge vocals and
more guitars than you can possibly imagine. Lyrically, this
one is a social commentary.
live under the same sun and breathe the same air, and at
Judgement Day, we will all be judged the same. You choose
your own path and fate in this life. Choose wisely!
Saints Of Tomorrow
Thorsten and drummer Pete Newdeck, with some help from Mike
- this is as modern as Eden's Curse gets. There's a definite
Firewind vibe to this tune, and it's insanely catchy.
Pete had this lyrical idea for Steve Grimmett / Tainted
Nation, but I wanted the title badly - I begged and he
brought it in. Lyrically, it's about the state of the world
and society today. We have a chance to do something to help
the children of the future. Shall we take on the mantle or
watch in shame?
written the bulk of this tune whilst we were auditioning
keyboard players. I gave them this tune, instrumentally, to
see what they could bring to the table. Ale returned his
with the string section that has now become the part James
We then threw down some lyrics and he sang this beautiful,
Dio-type melody? I just went WOW! The song just grew arms
and legs from there. We always envisaged a duet on that
tune, which is my ideal perception of what Eden's Curse is
all about. Lyrically, it's about people who act one way in
public and another way in private. Hypocrisy is everywhere
in society today.
about the birth of my daughter Emma. Great vocals by Mike
and I love the keyboards from Alessandro. Mr Newdeck penned
a chorus to die for here!
Can't Fool The Devil
bass, decibel rousing, deafening diatribe! Fast, furious and
angry! The devil eventually catches up with you sooner or
later. The question is, how ready are you?
Dare To Be Different
an ode to the Sheep of life and a song full of hope! Try
breaking away from the herd for once in your life! Nothing
good ever comes from staring at another sheep's bottom.
Rivers Of Destiny
originally written for the 'Place Vendome' project which is
coming out through Frontiers.
Ward (our esteemed producer and engineer) asked me to pen
some songs for that, but Place Vendome's loss is most
certainly our gain.
melodic tune on the album and one of Mike's best vocal
performances ever I think!
Children Of The Tide
one of my favourites on the album. I wrote this after
watching a documentary at Christmas time, about all the
tsunamis in the Indian Ocean. One mother spoke of how her,
her husband and young daughter all gripped on for dear life
and, suddenly, a wave came and took their daughter right out
of their grasp? There was nothing they could do to stop it.
That will always stick with me. Haunting song!
heaviest song Eden's Curse has ever written. Great powerful
vocals by Mike and Andi Deris (Helloween), and superb
drumming from Sir Newdeck.
people who can become anything that they want to be from
behind a keyboard. The web is full of people who prey on
others and attack with ease. Where you find webs, you find
spiders and they don't come more hardcore than the black
inspired by the movie The Kingdom Of Heaven with Orlando
Bloom. The film was pretty average, but I loved the concept
of the Muslims and Christians fighting to control Jerusalem.
It's a tale of courage, endurance and faith. A fantastic
riff and groove and some awesome fretwork by Thorsten! This
will be a live favourite for sure!
Rock N' Roll Children
Our ode to
Ronnie James Dio! Ronnie influenced this band and its
member's lives more than anyone will ever know. Every single
one of us was affected by his death in one form or another!
simply HAD to be done as our way of saying thank you to him
and the music he provided; music that essentially acted as a
soundtrack to our lives. We will never forget the man on the
silver mountain! God bless; RIP!
