Fans of the Frontiers Records label and the exciting Metal band Edge Of Paradise will be stoked at the news that the band has been signed to a multi-album deal. Read on down to the full press release below and I’ll return at the close with some editorial rumblings.
The Press Release:
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of another incredible metal act, Los Angeles, CA based Edge of Paradise to the label’s roster for a multi-album deal.
Formed by singer Margarita Monet and guitarist Dave Bates in 2011, Edge of Paradise debuted on the scene a few months later with “Mask”, an album of industrial-tinged metal coupled with soaring vocal hooks, which was warmly received by critics and fans alike.
After the release of ‘Mask’ and touring all over the West Coast, the group immediately began writing another album. By 2013, the band had started recording with Grammy Award winning producer Bob Kulick (Kiss, Motorhead) and working with the legendary Michael Wagener (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row) on the mix of their new songs. ‘Perfect Shade Of Black’ EP was the result of these sessions. The EP received rave reviews, painting a vivid picture of the bands staggering growth. Continue reading Frontiers Records Signs Edge Of Paradise To Multi-Album Deal→
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.
Artist: Edge Of Paradise Title: “Alive” (Single) Label: ILS Group Release Date: 2/4/2017 Genre: Heavy Metal Rating: 3.5/5
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→
