I believe I have tougher standards for making that passionate call than most -- I’m certainly more stony-eyed than the mega-hyping critics whose top 10 discs sleep in obscurity two or three years down the line. For me greatness hits like a spiritual tab of acid that re-arranges my senses (and my reality) permanently and positively. Or, as a Supreme Court of Justice once said about pornography -- “I can’t define it, but I know it when I see it”. According to this gut-check, as well as using my more analytical standards, Tribe of Eden‘s debut record SUPERNOVA SOUL (2008) is amazing on first listen and may happily prove its greatness over time. Here’s how I do the math.
First of all, I love the fact that -- like my favorite records by Pink Floyd, U2, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin -- every song demonstrates superior writing and fresh energy.
How many records these days have ten kick-ass efforts? These guys demonstrate very high ambition driven by killer talent!
Secondly, to my mind every great record radiates what I call “intensity of personality”. I need to sense an exceptional life-force, a vivid being, boiling forth through the music before I hang the mantle of “greatness” on it.
Lastly, I must get that thrill of barriers crashing down and more rock breaking through -- whether the barriers broken are musical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. If I don’t feel the hair standing up on the back of my neck it may be really good, but in my book it’s not great.
Go to Tribe of Eden’s website. Listen to the tracks they are currently featuring. Put on your best headphones and crank up the volume. Do you hear a star being born? And get ready to remember that rock once was great, and it can be great again.

Musically it’s an explosive barrage of arena-sized anthems and hard rock heroics with major commercial potential. Spiritually it’s a burningly passionate battle cry for self-empowerment, freedom, brotherhood, and love. Author-producer Bryan Eden’s mission seems to be nothing less than this: to raise the soul of rock from the dead with a soaring, open-hearted record for the ages.
Make no mistake about it -- these are great songs carved from universal themes. Heartbreak and forgiveness, despair and hope, sexual ecstasy and romantic union, fear and trust, self-liberation and most of all the healing power of love. Eden’s genius as a rocker and spiritual messenger is that he harnesses the fiery, triumphant feel of great rock music (U2 and Led Zeppelin come to mind) to positive messages that make listeners believe in themselves and in life.
Every great rock record must convince with great performances. Eden himself may be the most thrilling vocalist to emerge in a decade. Guitarist Axeshredder‘s (like Slash or the Edge he goes by his handle) blazing chops make him a candidate for Guitar Hero IV. Drummer Ruslan (“The Beast”) Moiseev combines John Bonham’s authority with Neal Peart’s speed and creativity. And on and on.
In an era of overly compressed, harsh-sounding CD’s, the shimmering, vibrant sound of this record is a revelation. Mixed by legendary producer and multi-grammy winner Steve Thompson (as in Guns N’Roses “Appetite for Destruction”) the record sounds explosive, colorful, warm and loud. It is chock-fall of ear-candy (Eden must be a huge Pink Floyd fan) and is a joy to listen to again and again. Something about the optimistic mood is both infectious and addictive. Turn off the light, light a candle and listen on headphones. From the epic guitar blast that opens the record to the rousing gospel chorus that concludes it, the record will satisfy your hunger for a great work of art that succeeds in both rocking your brains out and freeing your soul.

I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard a new band this good. From Bryan Eden’s amazing vocals and mystical/inspirational lyrics (rock fans have waited forever for a successor to Robert Plant) to huge arena guitar hooks and enough positive energy to light up a city, the record sounds like a hard rock sound track to The Lord of the Rings.
I really admire how the music has a “progressive rock" level of complexity, but an testosterone-hard rock intensity that measures up to old school heroes like AC/DC, Zeppelin and The Who. These guys have a major lust for life that defies the “negative cool” vibe that dominates modern rock. I am so ready to turn that page and I highly recommend you check these guys out.
Our typical set list lats for 90 minutes, with no break, consisting of our own original songs and enough passion to tear the roof off of arenas and light up a city!
