The vocals of Margarita Monet provide a smooth glossy venire to the hardcore riffing of guitarist Dave Bates.
...
With many influential elements aloft, it would be hard not to classify this group as being unique, and if we were to consult Dave or Margarita they would make it clear that the attempt here is to create a "sound" that would clearly define the Edge Of Paradise.

...
Interview taken from Dave Bates
...
DAVE:The key element that led to the sound more than any other was the guitar.
...
DAVE: well there are a lot of ways one can live on the edge, good and bad.
...
DAVE:Well, I believe that there are no such things as too many influences.
...
DAVE: Melodic chaos.
...
GEOROCK: Dave was in search of a singer to fill Robin McAuley's place.
...
DAVE:Robin is a great guy and an awesome singer.
...
GEOROCK: Dave is a very talented guitarist. If I haven't listened to the band, I would have expected a mix of neoclassical metal and classic rock. Well, there are some elements of this sound in your music, but the songs are dominated by heavy, sharp riffage. Why so?
DAVE:Thank you. This direction just feels right.
...
DAVE:Not at all, but I don't want to end up homeless either. It's always a struggle for the artist. I am very proud of what we have done here with "Mask" I hope others will enjoy the music as much as I enjoyed making it.
GEOROCK: What are your plans after the release of "Mask"?
DAVE:to play live as much as physically possible.
GEOROCK: You have done many live performances so far. What was the reaction of the crowd with you on stage. Did you hear any comments about the band?
DAVE:the response has been great so far.
...
DAVE:Thank you.

And some of the songs that are not finished yet are written by Me and Dave.
Considering that the band is very young, some of the original songs have longer history. Can you fill us in? Some of the songs that had a longer life originated in Dave's band Bleed. Dave and Robin MCauley worked on the songs before i came along and then we rewrote and rerecorded to better fit the sharp and modern sound of the band.
...
Me and Dave go out and check out other bands, seeing who's out there in LA, i think Steven and Kevin like to go out picking up girls:) Other music i listen to is usually the music of my favorite bands, including, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Guns&Roses;, Megadeath, Iron Maiden.
