“In the beginning was created the Heaven and the Earth, and the Earth was without form, and void; and Darkness was upon the face of the deep. And Man was formed from the dust of the ground, and became a living soul; and a garden was planted, eastward, in Eden.
And out of the ground grew every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
And watching from on high, surveying the joyous scene, stands Lucifer, The Morning Star. First-born Arch-angel, loved once above all others. Now fallen, through pride, and malice. And he approaches Eve, the Mother of Mankind, masquerading as the wily serpent.
And of the forbidden fruit she eats…………………… and knows.
“Her rash hand in evil hour forth-reaching to the fruit, she plucked, she ate; Earth felt the wound, and Nature from her seat, sighing through all her works, gave signs of woe that all was lost.”
And the Man ate of the fruit, and they knew the Knowledge of Good and Evil. And they were as Gods.
And their God knew of these things, and he drove them from the Garden.
And Darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And there was Winter in Eden.”

Our Thoughts on Winter In Eden:
“Winter in Eden was one of those unexpected discoveries, while poking around aimlessly on OurStage one dreary day in 2009. At that time, the band had a three-track EP, but it was promising enough to put them at the top of my list of bands to keep a close eye on. Their 2010 debut Awakening, which includes crisper versions of the songs on the EP plus 10 new tracks definitely lived up to the promise. So much so, that the album was among my top five releases of 2010. I’m happy to report that Winter in Eden’s sophomore release doesn’t disappoint! Check this band out for a shot of arctic beauty, tinged with melancholy.” ~Robin
