Edge of Paradise Concert Review – House of Rock -White Marsh, MD – November 9, 2013
On Nov 9, 2013 LA rockers, Edge Of Paradise took over House Of Rock stage as they commanded attention of all Rock Harvest headbangers!
Margarita Monet is one hell of a front woman, besides having unbelievable pipes and killer looks she can work the stage and jump on the edges of the stage in spiked stilettos!
She emerges in the songs and transforms f the with each track as she spell bounds everyone around her. Ok enough with my obsession with the lead singer. The band's songs and a very distinct sound. Very European but wildly accessible, I could easily see them going mainstream down the road.
Solid line up is lead by David Bates, who rips on the guitar like no other! The songs are definitely lead by souring vocals, catchy hooks, killer guitar riffs and shredding solos driven by grooving rhythm section! I'm not a guitar player, but this guy is on the level of guitar legends. To be honest, there have not been other guitar players that have spiked my interest in the last few years.
I will keep an eye on this band and find out if my prediction of them taking over arenas very soon come true! Which I hope they do as we are in need of a fresh and powerful melodic act to rise and set the bar as the bar has been lowering over the few years with bands copying each other and not bringing anything exciting to the music fans!
Oh ya, their version of Sabbath's song 'Children Of The Sea' will blow your mind!
I picked up their new EP that was mixed by the legendary rock titan Michael Wagener, and I tell ya what, this band is on the way to greatness! And being fronted by this gem , Margarita Monet they are bound to reach it.

1.Perfect Shade Of Black
