A few days ago I got to share the brand new music video from the band Edge Of Paradise with their song “Alive” and in those narratives I prefer to speak about the clip more than I do the song itself since it’s a different aspect in my mind. Now let’s quickly go over the track so you can decide if you want to add it to your music library.
I found this to be slightly different from the stuff that the band has done in the recent past and there was a strong move to what we hear in a lot of other Metal bands today with the presence of a growling vocal in the back on some of the lines. Overall the riffs by Bates are sound as well as the lead break and Margarita plays with a few different styles of her melodic register. At some points she is a subtle and sensual whisper and then she soars to the skies. There is an almost Industrial feel to some of the track based on the way the rhythm plays out and overall it’s a very straightforward tune. I liked but didn’t “love” it per se, but that is just be being on the fussy side. It’s good to find the band aiming at growth.
I do love the cover art which finds the stunning Monet in some sort of cybernetic transmutation. I hope that she fashions a real-life mask like this one for the concerts as it might add a cool sense of drama to the show. The bands new EP will hit in early March so do watch out for it.
