INTRODUCING…: EDGE OF PARADISE
For once a female-fronted metal band that isn’t in the gothic scene! Edge Of Paradise are an industrial heavy metal/hard rock duo (supplemented by guest musicians) from LA, formed by vocalist/keyboardist Margarita Monet and guitarist Dave Bates, and they released their début album Mask last year. Featuring the likes of Tony Franklin and Gregg Bissonette (both with an impressive resumé of guested releases), it promises to be a rocking rollercoaster of a ride, and certainly the video released for the title track delivers on that front.
I was just contacted by Bates via e-mail about a contest they’re running, where they’re giving away one of the following prizes:
1st – Autographed RG 7-String Electric Ibanez
2nd – Morpheus DropTune Pedal
3rd – Autographed EOP Package
(CD “Mask”, EOP T-Shirt, EOP Picks)
The catch? Upload a version of one of two Edge Of Paradise songs, creatively re-interpreted. For more information, go here. They’ve put backing tracks up of the two tracks, so make a video with yourself playing the track and upload it as a video response to this video.
For those who are unable or unwilling to enter the contest, I leave you with news that Edge Of Paradise have a new single due out next month, produced by a famous producer who’s worked with Metallica, Ozzy and WASP. Stay tuned, people.
