Interview with Vocalist Rod Arias
Interviewed by JP
NEW EDEN is a Los Angeles based Heavy Metal group started in the mid 90’s by Horacio Colmenares. The quintet driven music has been described as Progressive Speed Power-Metal fronted by melodic singing. Their recent album came out of left-field and caught me totally off guard. The new album SOLVING FOR X by New Eden falls in my ‘pleasant surprise of the year’ category. I had no idea the band had a new album in the works let alone still being active. It has been 11 years since STAGNANT PROGRESSION (an appropriate title under the circumstance of the time between albums) and I just assumed the band was dead and done. For that reason we wanted to catch up with the band with this interview!
