Because Chris has mentioned these folks several times and I’ve probably been negligent in promoting the “best kept secret” goth superband (members of Nephilim, All About Eve, Mission, Society, Skeletal Family, Faith and Muse, Van Morrison (violinist), Pink Floyd (sound engineer); amongst others). Almost no one plays on every song, but that’s often the nature of supergroups.
I think that Chris is the only other person I know who has heard of these folks independently of me. Every time I mention them, folks have seemed a bit surprised that these guys exist — often to the point of ignoring my recommendation to give them a gander. In ways, Eden House are a bit better of the sum of their individual efforts, but it depends.
For an idea of the sound — think Delerium (short-lived fame with Sarah MacLachlan singing Silence), except guitar and generally preferring “real” instruments over synthesized counterparts and less attention to mimicking Enigma witht he sampled dubs.
So… nothing at all like Delerium, but still whiffs of that feel/sound.
You tell me same old stories All awash with pride I've heard it all before the eyes you hide behind... Never see Why can't you face me? You cross the line I cut my ties to you I draw the line, I close my eyes to you You break me down I strike your back Under your iron truth You've drawn your last breath
