EDEN – Oblivion (Nick Workman of Vega)

Formed in the mid-2000’s, EDEN UK was another vehicle for Nick Workman to showcase his formidable vocal pipes which ultimately ended with him joining the Martin brothers to form VEGA. After KICK disbanded, Workman and guitarist Vince O’Regan (BOB CATLEY) started to give shape to this new band, EDEN, and released their debut CD in 2006.
For this second effort “Oblivion“, the band asked renowned Steve Newman (Newman) for helping with production, and to do the mix the album. The result is a hard rockin’ collection of songs with an 80s / 90s feel and updated sound which reminds a lot of HOUSE OF LORDS, plus a bit of WHITESNAKE, HEARTLAND, and NEWMAN, all with a certain edge.

They were signed by Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) label Beast Records and their debut album “Consider This…” was released in Japan and later Europe in 1999.
