PRESS

"LA's Edge Of Paradise just rocked the main stage of the Female Metal Event - FEMME festival in the Netherlands. They are the only US band here. I heard someone say they were the best band of the fest so far. Of course I agree. I think Europe will see more of them." 🎶🤘~John T  SONIC CATHEDRAL

"A lot of press has said that MONET is one of the most distinctive talents in contemporary hard rock, and there's absolute truth in the statement. As the tempo of "Alive" primarily serves up a dance rhythm, Margarita Monet swoons and shimmers on the verses, vocally tempting listeners into her aural web, and then hammering down upon them as the choruses thump likewise.-BLABBERMOUTH  

"The Los Angeles based foursome, fronted by stunning vocalist Margarita Monet; is destined to reach hard rock epic status and their new EP, ALIVE; is just another step toward metal immortality! "- Rock At Night

“ALIVE IS A WHOLE NEW WORLD, ANOTHER PLANET” - Bravewords.com 

"Possessing a wickedly fascinating front woman in the absolutely bewitching Margarita Monet and a battalion of supremely talented musicians, Edge Of Paradise is sure to thoroughly enrapture all types of music aficionados with their vibrant songs and captivating live performance. "- Highwire Daze
