OH HAI 2005
EDENBORN takes the cake this week with their release of 2183.
Formerly The Legacy Hour, the new group consists of Pat Grasso, Jeremy Davis, Sharon Malfesi, Andrew Formale, and Joe Natale. After a few line up changes and a short break, the band released 2183 on Tuesday May 7th, 2013.
Before the release, the band has been making major waves in the metalcore scene winning the battle to play Eat Your Heart Fest with headliners including Whitechapel and Emmure, unfortunately that date of the tour was cancelled due to the severe weather that plagued much of the Northeast this past winter.
Featured track “Tali Vas Normandy” (insert Mass Effect 3 nerd reference) highlights the bands technical mastery of the metalcore genre featuring clean backing vocals from Malfesi who also shreds as one of the bands lead guitarists. Combine the flawless screaming with subtle melodic vocal parts, controlled technical drumming, and guitars so precise you almost find yourself categorizing the group as an instrumental djent/metal band much like Intervals.
The production value of 2183 is pristine. Every format that I play the EP through sounds great, the mixes translate well even on my laptop speakers. It is clear that the bands’ partnership with Westfall Recording Company in Long Island NY is paying off.
2183 is available for DONATION on the bands Bandcamp page, a trend that has been sweeping the music industry as bands attempt to get their music to fans by any means possible. Therefore, it is up to you, download it for free, or throw the band some extra cash as a donation. Travel, gear, and recording time are not free so why not help an unsigned band.
Overall, I rate 2183, with a 5/5 and it is a great start for the bands career.

Fun Fact: Spike’s trench coat and double gun-slinging are a direct nod to Chow Yun Fat’s character Mark Gor (Brother Mark) from the classic Hong Kong film A Better Tomorrow. In fact, the entire final shoot-out is modeled after the final shoot-out in A Better Tomorrow 2.
