And the last good surprise from USA is…. Eden's Fall! I don't know why, but if the bands from USA were a bit distanced by the Europeans ones some few years ago, there is a new wave nowadays and this is really refreshing. Now, there are a lot of originals newcomers from America and they're all really good and surprising. Eden's Fall, with its super Progressive Thrash Metal is just one them.

I'm sure that you all already know Nevermore, and well I won't say that Eden's Fall plays a really similar music but honestly we're not so far. Eden's Fall plays Thrash Metal for sure and do I need to add that they have a lot of great guitars riffs, catchy choruses, and awesome soli with angry vocals? No, not really because you all know what is Thrash anyway. But I can add that Eden's Fall is not so classic. Like Nevermore their music is super complex, near to be progressive. The songs are really complex super varied and their structures aren't linear. At the opposite their songs have this particularity that we can find with Progressive bands, their structure isn't basic and repetitive. Of course, it can be a bit messy on a side but when it's well done, there is no problem, and yes Eden's Fall does it good.

Honestly this album is a real jewel of Thrash and it's hard to find a lot of bad points. It was mixed by the master Dan Swano, the design and layout that were made by Dan Gronowski are really good and look super professional and the musical level of all the musicians is extremely good. So really it's hard to find something wrong on this album. However the voice John Barr sounds "Thrash", understand that it is not the purest one that I ever heard but on the other hand it fits perfectly to the music. "Harmonies Of Lies" is just a good album…

"Harmonies Of Lies" is a super surprise for me. These guys are good, they know how to play and write nice Thrash Metal and they know how to be original so please my friends you should have a look on this excellent release. I will follow Eden's Fall road and I'm ready to put some bucks on the table. We will hear a lot of good things about this combo in a near future believe me…
