Just a few years since the release of 'Eden Fire,' the album that started it all, Sonic Syndicate has become a household name throughout the music world. This is exemplified by its 2008 album, 'Love And Other Disasters,' which charted higher than ever before throughout the band’s budding-though-still-illustrious career. The release of its Nuclear Blast Records debut, 'Only Inhuman,' saw the band opening for such revered acts as Soilwork, In Flames and Caliban throughout Europe, as well as North American tours with Amon Amarth and the multi-platinum selling Nightwish. So make no mistake: Sonic Syndicate is a force to be reckoned with!
With 'Eden Fire,' Sonic Syndicate can be heard at its most vulnerable and youthful state. Here was a band so proud of its previous EPs that it entered the infamous StudioMega (The Crown, The Wake) to give them a much deserved polishing, while also adding three brand new tracks to culminate into its full length debut album. Standouts “Jailbreak” and “Enhance My Nightmare” not only helped garner 'Eden Fire' rave reviews in the press, but they also laid the foundation for Sonic Syndicate’s future musical outings, while tracks like “Crowned In Despair” and “Lament of Innocence” offered elements such as female operatic vocals and industrial nuances that the band has yet to expand upon. 'Eden Fire' also marked the first vocal sessions of future full time member Roland Johansson on secondary vocal duties. For a side of Sonic Syndicate that many have not yet experienced – a band unshaped and untouched by the mainstream music industry, 'Eden Fire' is not only a mandatory incredible album filled with cult classics and fan favorites, but also a piece of history that documents the beginnings of a young underground band on the edge of its explosion to fame.
With soon-to-be four full length albums and numerous tours under its belt, Sonic Syndicate has proven its staying power and the album that started it all, now properly distributed, is sure to become a staple for all Sonic Syndicate fans.
