EDGE OF PARADISE : ‘Universe’ – new album out 08.11.19 via Frontiers + European tour

29th August 2019 0 By John Deaux
Formed by singer/pianist Margarita Monet and guitarist Dave Bates in 2011, Los Angeles based
Edge Of Paradise have made a name for themselves in the metal scene with the release of well
received independent albums and heavy touring both nationally and internationally. ‘Universe’ is
their third album (and first for Frontiers) and is produced by Mike Plotnikoff (Halestorm, Three Days
Grace) and mixed by Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Volbeat, Pretty Maids). It brings together a symphonic
and classic metal approach with contemporary sounds such as industrial and electronic influences.
Describing the album, Monet states that ”we set out to create something that would transport you to
another world, music that transcends time and space and takes you on an epic ride through our
‘Universe’! The songs are about shattering your fears, testing your limits, and going after your passions
at the speed of light, holding on to our humanity and supporting one another as we enter our insane
digital future together. Musically, the songs hit you with a cosmic wall of sound, supersonic energy with
massive industrial and symphonic textures. We were very lucky to have the best production team for
this album as Mike Plotnikoff and Jacob Hansen helped capture our vision perfectly.” 
Coinciding with the release of ‘Universe’, Edge Of Paradise will tour Europe in late 2019 in support of
Sonata Arctica (full itinerary below) while additional tour announcements for 2020 are imminent.
“We are beyond excited to bring our show to European audiences! The sheer power and energy of
these songs are electrifying live and we can’t wait to share our ‘Universe’ with everyone, so come to
the show and let’s forget the outside world for a moment and get lost in another dimension together,”
adds Monet.
The 2012 debut album by Edge Of Paradise, ‘Mask’, was followed in 2015 by ’Immortal Waltz’, which
was produced by Michael Wagener (Dokken, Accept, Skid Row), and then the five song EP ‘Alive’ in
early 2017. Produced by Chuck Johnson (Korn, Slipknot) and mixed by Jay Ruston, Mike Plotnikoff
and Michael Wagener, the EP landed on the Billboard Top 100 New Artist Albums and Current Rock
Albums charts, reached no 1 on Amazon’s Rock charts and broke into the Top 40 on iTunes Hard
Rock/Metal albums charts. It received rave reviews and California’s biggest rock station KLOS
supported the song ‘Shade Of Crazy’ while Loudwire premiered a video for ‘Mystery’ and it stayed in
the Top 5 of the site’s Battle Royal chart for 10 weeks. The band also made their international debut
at Femme Festival in Holland and performed their first shows in Japan at this time.
