A harmonic blast furnace of sound and fury!

Truly original acts are rare in the progressive arena that to the influence of bands like King Crimson and Yes. Winter in Eden is unique as you would be hard matched to think of an act that can walk the lyrical tightrope of symphonic melodies with a metal oriented bass line from which to pull. Court of Conscious is the new release with eleven solid compositions and a power that most bands are unable to muster.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Court of Conscious has variety including a blues rock tune "Affliction" while never losing touch with their roots on the more anthem oriented "Knife Edge." This is the consummate version of passion on a shiny silver disc. While the band has yet to fully crack the musical embargo that the United States seems to enjoy, their potential is unlimited.
