Edge Of Paradise released a banger of an album, “The Unknown” in 2021 and tonight they were able to showcase a great selection of songs from that release.
It’s been a while since Edge Of Paradise have performed live. That alone didn’t make it surprising that a larger than expected crowd for a Sunday night made their way to The Whisky in Hollywood.
Edge of Paradise are Margarita Monet (vocals/keyboards), Dave Bates (guitar), David Ruiz (guitar), Kenny Lockwood (bass) and Jamie Moreno. Their sound could be described as symphonic metal and their songs deal with a number of futuristic and thought provoking themes. Most have a truly epic quality to them and it translates well to the live setting.
The chugging rhythms, innovative solos and exquisite vocals of Margarita were reproduced perfectly which wasn’t a shock, but more of a very pleasant surprise. If you’ve heard “The Unknown” you’ll know why; it’s an album that seems steeped in multiple musical layers.
- You Touch You Die
- Digital Paradise
- Tidal Wave
- Leaving Earth
- Burn The Sun
- Bound To The Rhythm
- One Last Time
- False Idols
- The Unknown
- Welcome To the Jungle
The band have 3 previous album releases, but I highly recommend getting a copy of “The Unknown” to get a true flavor of what this band is capable of.
I’d say Edge Of Paradise are on the verge of something big
