"Great, melodic grunge rock with a vibe that's a total throwback to the good ole' days of the 90's, when flannel was in, the Towers were still standing, and we all still harbored a slight distrust for the Russians."
Formed in early 2008 after several years of playing in the New York and New Jersey alternative, hardcore punk and metal scene, the four friends Ghosts Of Eden had a new shared focus: brotherhood, strong songwriting and never looking back. They wanted to stray from the trends that they were seeing in the music industry. Together they decided that they wanted to be in a band that writes songs that could stand the test of time.
Inspired by some of their heroes like Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, GOE prides themselves on unforgettable guitar riffs, thought provoking lyrics and melodies that are meant for the masses. With influences which run the gamut from 90s alternative and grunge to hardcore, metal and 80s College Rock, GOE seamlessly combines these seemingly disparate elements with a sound that gives your ear a good swift kick to the backside.
In 2010 alone, GOE has accomplished what some only dream of. From being invited to grace the stage of a sold out show at New York City's famed Gramercy Theater to playing multiple shows at Six Flags Great Adventure and an in-house promotional performance at Best Buy in Manhattan, Ghosts of Eden is quickly on the rise.
"As of now Ghosts of Eden are unsigned, but I predict that it won't be long at all before the record label bidding wars begin." - A Geek Girl, Blog Critics
GOE completed recording their self-produced debut EP "Ignorance & Lies" at Big Blue Meenie Studios (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Helmet, Local H, Bouncing Souls, The Misfits, etc.) All songs were written, arranged and produced by the band. "Ignorance & Lies" was released on January 16th, 2010 to rave reviews by critics and fans alike.
