Forgotten Hard Rock Albums: Heavens Edge - "Heavens Edge"

Recommended Posts

A new entry in my forgotten hard rock albums series.

It didn't take long for me to dig this PA band. Being a Mid-Atlantic hard rock junkie, I waited and anticipated this album.

And boy was I not disappointed.

Bad Reputation, Find A Way, Play Dirty and Skin To Skin are all killers. The album did have a few fillers though but still an outstanding CD!!

Another one of those bands that came out a few years too late and signed with a label that didn't promote them very well.  I played this one to death back in 1990.  The four tracks you mentioned along with Come Play the Game were my favorites.   The sound on this was huge, another great production job by Neil Kernon.   They were a good live band as well.

Find Another Way is an amazing song.

First time I heard this album was in Bali soon after it was released.
A great time. You'd walk down the streets past all the music stores full of cassettes blasting music out into the street, and you'd hear songs like this and walk in any just the album for a few bucks.
You'd come home with a bag full of music. All pirated but I'd always repurchase the ones I likes on record or CD.

Another fun song on that disc was the one with the lyric "as long as I've got a face, that's it. You know you've got a place to sit"

Yeah, one of the greats. Lucky enough to get this not long after it was released. I remember hearing about them from "Metal Edge" .

    • Have to agree....Absolutely killer album!  I've been through it a handful of times now and I swear the more I listen, the more I like it.       I don't know if it'll be my top album but it's definitely right there among my favorites this year. Have picked up their last album too and will be checking that out closer once I can get the new one out of my CD player Not sure how these guys slipped under my radar.  Good stuff.
    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.
