Edenthorn bring anthems tailor made for stadiums on debut album ‘Exist’

Durham band Edenthorn are gaining a reputation in the North East and beyond. Their tracks are fit for stadiums and have captured the attention of both Kerrang Radio and BBC Introducing Tees and North East, bringing an eclectic mix of influences along the way. On their debut album ‘Exist’ there’s a lot going on including tempo changes and you can see their potential, demonstrating a masterclass in songwriting.

It’s clear that the band wear their influences on their sleeve, and when they get the songwriting right they can churn out bangers. For example the groovy ‘There’s a Noise in My Head’ which features a catchy riff that’s reminiscent of Muse and an emotive chorus which works superbly. This is followed up by the heavy distortion of ‘The Unknown’, with the Soundgarden-esque vocals packing a huge punch. A well-balanced mix sets the tone for this album, and it’s perfect for those who like massive stadium anthems.
