Frontiers Music Srl has announced the signing of Los Angeles-based metal act EDGE OF PARADISE.
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, MOTÖRHEAD) 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.
2014 served as a heavy touring year for the band and after gigging heavily around the U.S., the band managed to record and release their second full length studio album, "Immortal Waltz". Produced and recorded by Wagener, the album was released in May 2015 and right away the album started to receive great reviews from critics and fans alike.
Come March 2017, EDGE OF PARADISE released a five-song EP, "Alive", which was produced by Chuck Johnson (AFI, RIDDLIN' KIDS) with tracks mixed by Jay Ruston, Mike Plotnikoff, and Michael Wagener. "Alive" received rave reviews and L.A.'s revered rock station KLOS gave "Shade Of Crazy" some love on the airwaves. EDGE OF PARADISE also made its international debut at Femme Festival in Holland and recently played in Japan in support of the "Alive" EP.
EDGE OF PARADISE is putting the finishing touches on a new album, "Universe", with producer Mike Plotnikoff (HALESTORM, IN FLAMES, BUCKCHERRY). Mixing set to be handled by Jacob Hansen (AMARANTHE, VOLBEAT, PRETTY MAIDS).
