Last year, I had asked what the very favorite Horror films might be among a wide assortment of the musicians that I had met over the last few years while covering shows and special events. The fun disclosures can be reviewed HERE for those who are new to our offerings and might have missed that when it first ran. Yesterday, I decided to do it again with some of the people that I didn’t get around to that last time and while there are only a few, its still fun to find out what spooks some of our talented friends. Let’s get down to business in finding out what some of Hard Rock and Metal’s best and brightest find to be their favorite and scariest films and what makes this be the case. Scroll down…..if…you…dare……Bwahahahaha!!!!
Margarita Monet (Edge Of Paradise): What i love about Horror films is that they are so much fun to watch with with friends, I wouldn’t watch them alone, it’s way more fun to be terrified together. I love the classics like the “A Nightmare On Elm Street”. But for my favorite, I would have to go with “The Ring”, and not just because the movie was so great, it had all the right bone chilling elements, but watching it with my friends in middle school and acting out as the creepy girl coming out of the TV for weeks later, just brings really fun memories about those days, and maybe we’ll give “The Ring 2” a chance.
The brand new EP by Edge Of Paradise is here and available on both Amazon.com and i-Tunes. You can add this digital release to your Metal library with the link below. It comes care of Independent Label Services.

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. Continue reading “Alive” (Single) by Edge Of Paradise→
The other day I learned that California’s own Edge Of Paradise had released a brand new video for a song called “Alive”. The tune will be on a forthcoming EP but we can address that later. Here is the video that was directed by Val Rassi.
Artist: Edge Of Paradise Title: “Shade Of Crazy” (Single) Label: Edge Of Paradise Release Date: 7/18/2016 Genre: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Rating:
When we last heard from California’s Edge Of Paradise it was with their well-received full-length album “Immortal Waltz” and since we will have a little bit of a wait for another album, the band has wisely dished out a brand new single with “Shade Of Crazy”. I downloaded this the other day and wanted to tell you about it so here we go. The tune begins with some conventional riffing that is nice and solid and Monet’s vocals are softer and almost ethereal for the introductory verses. That doesn’t remain the case of course when she gets to showcasing her soaring register. Continue reading “Shade Of Crazy” (Single) by Edge Of Paradise→
