Edenbridge is a symphonic- and neo-classical metal band from Austria.

Band history

Edenbridge was formed in 1998 by guitarist and keyboardist Lanvall, bassist Kurt Bednarsky and vocalist Sabine Edelsbacher. The line-up was completed when drummer Roland Navrati joined the band. Edenbridge quickly set to work, and entered the recording studio in 1999, and signed a recording deal with Massacre Records the very same year. The album, named "Sunrise in Eden" was released in the autumn of 2000.

The band added a second guitarist, Georg Edelmann, to its line-up in February, 2000, but his stay with the band was to be a short one. When he left in January, 2001, he was replaced by Andreas Eiblar. Under this line-up, Edenbridge released the album "Arcana" (2001). During a tour in 2002, Edenbridge's bassist and founding member Kurt Bednarsky left the band. In November the same year, the album "Aphelion" (2002) was released. Their next album, recorded live and entitled "A Livetime In Eden" was released in August 2004 two years later, followed shortly by "Shine" in October. At this time, a new bassist, Frank Bindig, joined the band. In December the same year, guitarist Andreas Eibler left the band on friendly terms and was replaced by Martin Mayr.

"The Grand Design" (2006), their fourth studio album, was recorded at Lanvall's studio Farpoint Station (one of many Star Trek references surrounding Edenbridge) and was released May 19th, 2006. The single "For Your Eyes Only" was released April 21st, featuring the album track "Evermore" and a cover version of the James Bond theme of "For Your Eyes Only" (originally performed by Sheena Easton), the first cover the band have ever recorded.

Edenbridge has signed a world wide deal with Napalm Records and are proud to announce to be part of the Napalm Records family from now on.Also, on January 30, 2007, Edenbridge released a new album titled, "The Grand Design" in the USA and Canada.

Edenbridge released their new album "MyEarthDream" in April 2008. The album features the Czech Film Orchestra (comprising 65 musicians from the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and the Czech State Opera Orchestra), with arrangements by Enrique Ugarte.
