Album Review: Exit Eden – Femmes Fatales


Female-fronted symphonic metal band Exit Eden have come back after a six-year hiatus with their first album since their 2017 debut album Rhapsodies in Black.

The new album, Femme Fatales, will be released via Napalm Records. The international trio push beyond the threshold in music. Since the first album in 2017, Exit Eden became internationally recognized and #15 in the German album charts.

This band of musicians have an innate talent and creative drive invoking their passion for metal and blending with pop-rock sounds.  The deep vocal melodies and powerful instrumental sound blended pay reverence to originals from Journey’s “Separate Ways,” Pet Shop Boys’ “It’s a Sin,” Heart’s “Alone,” and Alice Cooper’s “Poison.”

“Femme Fatale,” the first track is a haunting and mind-melting symphonic depiction of their intent to convey female energy and empowerment. “Elysium” and “Kaylieigh” are intense crushing powerhouse tracks that have a serious tone to them.

“Run!” (feat. Marko Hietala) has got medieval-aged monotones blended with metal, and then the piano solo paints an illustrative scenic picture. “Dying in my Dreams” was co-written by Marina La Torraca, and the remaining five original songs were brought to existence by Anna Brunner and Hannes Braun (Kissin’ Dynamite), who is also responsible for recording, production, and mixing, whereas the album was mastered by Jacob Hansen (Delain, Amaranthe, Volbeat, Destruction and many more).

Stellar vocal range and blended tones, the female trio are huge contenders in the metal scene. They stick to their own ways and follow no trends. The music’s raw and pure metal energy is intriguing and takes you to different places in music rarely seen.


Femmes Fatales released on January 12.
