4.0 out of 5 stars Best SoE effort so far! 16 Jan 2014
By Artiom
Format:Audio CD
As many other listeners, I discovered Saints of Eden through Carl McCoy's Nefilim, since I was and still am particularly fond of 1996 Zoon album.
First of all, considering frontman's past contributions, I greatly appreciate the fact that Saints of Eden have not tried to imitate sound/vocals/lyrics of Fields of the Nephilim, as it has happened with a seemingly endless number of FotN related projects, but have chosen to develop an own style instead. It goes without saying that (at least in my case) original versions are preferred instead of the already usual nostalgia.
In my opinion, Lost So Incompletely, Red Mist and Game Over are the album's standouts. I may even say that Lost So Incompletely is the best power ballad I've heard in the genre since Nefilim's Shine and Wake World, absolutely mesmerising. Maybe this territory (clean vocals and atmosphere) could be worth exploring in the future.
Phaze Me and Surrender, for instance, are some other solid tracks as well.
The thing to be improved is, in my opinion, musical backup on more uptempo/powerful songs. I do think that Timesphere or Scapegoat have potential, but harsh vocals lack the support of deeper and more aggressive music as the song develops, as well as further complexity.
In spite of these little flaws, Forbidden Pleasure is definitely a very solid and quality record, and I much recommend everyone to buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars ...Nefilim ex sticks to the script... 20 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Saints Of Eden was formed by ex-Nefilim member Cian Houchin and over the course of three albums - "The Other Side", "Proteus" and "Overload" sound exactly what you would expect a Bradford based offshoot of the Nefilim to sound like. And that would be goth metal with a side order of industrial, thank you very much.

And here, on album number four, "Forbidden Pleasure", things carry on in very much the same manner. Which is fine by me, a Rammstein / Paradise Lost loving gloomster. Although, credit where credit's due, they take some sideways steps, no more so than on the rock disco ready 'One'. A tune that will get one Andrew Eldritch shaking his head and thinking "if only I wasn't such an arse".

It's fairly evenly split between the club friendly tunes and the harder hitting ones, although sometimes they manage to get the meld just right, which is why 'Game Over' is my new favourite goth track. And metal loving mongers should certainly cock an ear to the mighty beast that is 'Scapegoat', all brutal percussion and aggressive vocals.

If anything it might be their diversity that is their downfall, what with the world of music dissolving into micro-genres, but hopefully there are enough people out there to make this the success it deserves to be.
