The Review:

Edensong is a brand new prog band who combine Medieval Folk, Metal, and Symphonic Prog. They mix their influences of classic bands like Jethro Tull and Rush with modern bands like Echolyn and Opeth on their debut, The Fruit Fallen, into something very original (at least to my ears). It’s quite angular at times but that is soon counterbalanced by quiet pastoral passages. I will admit it took me a long time to fully appreciate the music. I’m glad I continued digesting The Fruit Fallen because Edensong has become one of my favorite new bands.

This is one of those rare occasions where every track is a favorite. From the opening track “Water Run” to the closing epic 21+ minute “The Reunion” the band send the listener of a aural journey. I think with this debut, the band has shown a glimpse of what they have to offer. I think true music connoisseurs will enjoy listening to The Fruit Fallen over and over. The Fruit Fallen is recommended listening for fans of the aforementioned bands and those that require their music to be a true art form!
