Edge Of Paradise - Universe (Review)

Artist: Edge Of Paradise
Album: Universe
Genre: Melodic Metal
Label: Frontiers Music Srl.
Release Date: November 8, 2019
Reviewed by: Bobby Caughron


Edge Of Paradise continues to impress with their latest release entitled “Universe”.  I’ve had the opportunity to watch the band move up the ranks from being an unknown independent band to gaining serious notoriety by charting on iTunes, Billboard and Amazon Music.  Singer Margarita Monet has a powerful yet gentle sounding voice.  With “Universe” the band expand on what they have done in the past and move into the same modern metal territory as Halestorm, Within Temptation and In This Moment. This album features a little more electronic sounds and industrial style keyboards than previous albums, but never loses the heaviness or the subtle sounds that have made them popular.

One thing that has always impressed me about Edge Of Paradise is the bands’ hard work ethics and their ability to connect with their fans, through both their music, online social media and fan interaction.  Make no mistake, this band has worked hard for everything that they’ve earned.  The title track “Universe” is extremely catchy and hook-laden.  Other great tracks that stand out to me are Fire, Perfect Disaster and ElectrifyElectrify is another great song that will have the chorus stuck in your head for days.  Overall, the band have done a great job with this album, blending Symphonic, Modern and Classic Metal together for a larger than life sound.
