I was listening to the Heavy Metal Mayhem Radio Show recently and caught an interview with the lead singer Margarita Monet of this brand-new band to my Metal ears known as Edge Of Paradise. The name rings a mental bell but at this time I cannot determine why this is the case. The young singer sounded super positive and while the host of the show played a song called “Falling Down” I could only locate the single which is the same name as the debut album “Mask”. Here are some thoughts on the tune and the band.
The tune is a nice blending of Metal and Hard Rock and Monet has a powerful voice that really soars over the crunching riffs of guitarist Dave Bates. The rhythm section of the group is a powerful one with Greg Bissonette on drums and Bjorn Englen on the bass. The pair are most prominently known as having worked with David Lee Roth and Yngwie Malmsteen so there is no slouching there. There seems to be a lot of potential in the group and I can surely get behind it. While the full album is already out for public consumption, I didn’t have access to the whole thing and that is why I opted for the quick summary about the single. I liked the vibe that Margarita put out across the Internet waves during her interview and figured I could get your interest piqued just a little bit. Stay tuned for the rest of my thoughts when my copy of “Mask” arrives. Get on board early my friends.
