Origins and History
Edenwar was born in January 2014 as a musical project, when Anna Fiori and Nicolás Dobernack decided to work together in a new Symphonic Metal idea that was being composed by Nicolás.
Nicolás and Anna had been working together for many years in different projects, but they always had separate musical careers.
This new idea, together with Anna’s voice, ended up being the first song of the Edenwar Album. The 8 minute song entitled “Agony of Mankind” was initially designed as a single and self-conclusive collaboration. However, the song was very well accepted by the producers before making it public.
Given the positive comments and critics from selected people in the music industry, the proposition of creating a band finally came, and it was well received. This new project, more complex and professional would be named later as Edenwar.
Once the project was finished, the songs were mixed and mastered by Brett Caldas-Lima (producer of important bands like Devin Towsend Project, To-Mera, Arjen Lucassen, Pain of Salvation or Megadeth).
In May 2015, after eighteen months of work, Edenwar finishes the composition and recording of their first album, self-titled, with the collaboration of important international artists in the metal music world.
Meaning of Edenwar
Edenwar is a metaphor itself, a paradox that finds its deepest meaning through looking inside every human being.
On one hand, the Eden is presented as a symbol of purity, a place where everything is a reflection of a paradise full of innocence and fragility. A timeless place where everything is perfect and yet, so delicate that any threat could destroy it with no mercy.
On the other hand, the symbol of war is presented as a place where all hope is lost, evil arises in the hearts of men, and the only thing that prevails is the survival instinct.
Edenwar is nothing but a metaphor of a mind that struggles every day to keep and protect this paradise of innocence and fragility that makes us more human, people capable of loving. Edenwar is the banner we raise in our hearts when we do not give up to the destruction and the lack of hope, fighting for this small garden where everyone returns to their childhood.
Losing the war means becoming a stone, incapable of feeling anything, not being able to love. That’s why the battle cry for Edenwar is: #PrepareForWar.
