This COLLECTORS CORNER FEATURE is for Edge of Paradise ONE OF THE GREATEST BANDS of all-time, for this feature we check our top 100 albums list which was compiled starting in 1980 updated during the golden age of metal August 1st, 1981 to October 31st, 1986 and kept up to date as new top 100 artist emerge through out hard rock heavy metal history and compare them to the revisionist reviews written by those were never there in the first place, metal archives is the MOST obvious slander of all top 100 heavy metal albums of all-time. Since Edge of Paradise is in the Classic Classy Hard Rock meets Classic Metal positive vibes side of things they have no metal archives page, so with this in mind. I did notice on April 21st, 2017 Tony Cannella of Femme Metal webZine, was stupid and dumb enough to give one of the World’s Greatest Hard Rock/Heavy Metal albums of all-time a fucking 85 out of 100. Forever linking this bad album review to the WORST RECORD REVIEWS OF ALL-TIME, in the same league as Dave Reynold’s WILD FUCK UP OF CELTIC FROST “Into the Pandemonium” in Metal Forces which was a 0 out of 100…..if you think life can not get more surreal the “administers” @ something called a “Metal Archives let a BLINK182 fan passing himself off as “being there” during the tape trader-era of the early Underground. Not sure who is a bigger fuck up on this Jake “THE FLAKE” Boris, who wrote a Metallica “Master of Puppets” revisionist CD review of a 0 out of 100, with thousands and thousands of anachronisms. Or the “administers”, who were dumb enough to have that non-sense and garbage on there website !! In Tony Cannella review he states the obvious that EDGE OF PARADISE IS A WORLD-CLASS HARD ROCK/ HEAVY METAL BAND, AND THE band is WORLD-CLASS and original beyond any hard rock/ heavy metal fans wildest expectations. Then his chesse slid off of his cracker and then he proceeds to “guess” a score for this album review. 85 has been the new 100 since March 1995. if you notice in CD reviews Heavy Metal publications, take points off of heavy metal bands for whoa…..being HEAVY METAL !!!! ha ha !!!!!!!!!!!! …no shit this has been a real trend since day 1 of the internet age!!!

 

But the reason this is a crime against the heavy metal community is because Edge of Paradise has a #1 World-Wide Ranking @ KICK*ASS*METAL, not just of the 21st century BUT OF ALL-TIME!!!! So lets take a look at what was stolen from you if you were stupid enough to take Tony Cannella’s word on this…!!!! For me.

4 releases @ 6 copies each, right from the RIP — Tony has stolen $360 from my SERIOUS HEAVY METAL COLLECTION, when I seen Edge of Paradise LIVE in August 2016, I spent $120 between Merchandise table and the TICKET…

TO SEE ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVE BANDS OF ALL-TIME LIVE…..!!!!

THIS WAS A INDELIBLE MARK ON THE HISTOY ON MY PSYCHE AND THE HISTROY BOOKS, BECAUSE EDGE OF PARADISE WAS A TOP 10 CONCERT OF ALL-TIME (number 2 of all-time actually) OUT OF THE THOUSANDS AND THOUSSAND OF CONCERTS I HAVE ATTENDED SINCE  December 1982.

 

Right now as it stands this bad review has ripped you off of $480 and priceless memories that will never leave you….!! Plus if you skipped over Edge of Paradise because of that review and bought another CD, now you in the $500 range of being ripped of because of that bad review !!!!!

 

So yea!!!! I usually save this COLLECTORS CORNER feature for the top 100 albums during the fanzine age, and compare them to the revisionism of the internet age…but when I saw this bad review from a like minded publication!! The review was stellar, but the score is so low a 85, maybe it was a layout error and not a mental mistake, error…!!!

I was floored someone could be so careless about there objective/subjective journalism !!!!

EDGE OF PARADISE IS THE GOLD STANDARD OF THE MODERN ERA AND EDGE OF PARADISE ARE THE FUTURE OF HARD ROCK/HEAVY METAL….Margarita Monet is a 2 time PERSON OF THE YEAR winner in 2011 and 2015 and as the year is almost half way over!!! Margarita Monet is likely to win the 2017 Person honor of the year AGAIN in 2017!!!!

Every band on Planet Metal is judged in comparison to EDGE OF PARADISE since they have been the GOLD STANDARD in Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal, since September 15th, 2011…….!!!! The Gold Standard is a noun the best, and it means the most reliable, or most prestigious thing of its type….in this case were talking World-Class Hard Rock/ World-Class Heavy Metal!!!

 
After releasing their debut in 2011 the California based hard rock/metal outfit Edge of Paradise followed that up with the excellent “Immortal Waltz” disc in 2015. A few months ago, the band unleashed their new single “Shade of Crazy” which served as a pre-cursor to their new EP, “Alive”, which I am pleased to say is out now. The 19-minute EP opens with gritty introductory guitar riff of “Alive”. Lead singer Margarita Monet has one of the more unique voices in metal. She offers something different with her style and it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but she is definitely quite talented and has a ton of charisma. In fact the whole band is working like a well-oiled machine at this point. Next, we have “Dust to Dust” which has a sexy vibe to it and easily became one of my early favorites. “Mystery” is a haunting ballad and another one that I would put right up there among my faves. Next, we have the aforementioned single “Shade of Crazy” which is just as good today as the day I first heard it. And finally we have “Humanoid” to bring this “Alive” EP to a satisfying conclusion. Edge of Paradise offers the listener something different than most of the hard rock/metal bands out today. Different but very appealing. “Alive” is another first-rate release for this outstanding band.

Rating – 85/100

……………..fuck man, I wanted to give a 85 rating can I spin the wheel again, this one is 30, go-head spin the wheel again……… 85 cool f@ck it is only the 2017 Hard Rock/Heavy Metal album of the year…seems legimate !!! 30/85 tomato /potato …………….
