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"

haha

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

    • Nice! Never got the debut so will pick that up for sure.   Might grab the other two also for the bonus stuff.
    • As mentioned before 'Loud Minority' gets the reissue treatment and so does their 2 follow-ups as well. From Frontiers: • CRAZY LIXX TO RE-ISSUE 2007 DEBUT ALBUM, "LOUD MINORITY" PLUS "NEW RELIGION" AND "RIOT AVENUE", EACH FEATURING BONUS TRACKS

      • ALL THREE AVAILABLE ON CD/COLOR LP/MP3 ON OCTOBER 12, 2018

      Swedish hard rock outfit Crazy Lixx will reissue their long out-of-print 2007 debut album, "Loud Minority" via Frontiers Music srl on October 12, 2018. In addition to the original 11 tracks found on the album, the reissue will also feature seven bonus tracks, including Japanese bonus tracks and early demo versions of track. Along with the reissue of "Loud Minority", reissues of the follow-up albums "New Religion" (2010) and "Riot Avenue" (2012) will also be available on October 12th, each with added bonus material on both as well.

      All three albums will be available on CD, Digital, and, for the first time, LP. The vinyl versions will all be special, limited edition color versions. See below for details and tracklisting. 

      Crazy Lixx vocalist and original member, Danny Rexon on the reissue of LOUD MINORITY: "The original pressing of 5000 albums was the only one ever made. We were on a small independent label at the time and even though the album was quite successful, peaking at #2 on the Swedish Rock charts, there was never any second pressing. The label ceased to be and we managed to buy out the rights for the album which we've now handed over to Frontiers. We're very pleased to be able to re-release this album a decade after it was originally out and after being unavailable for so long. Of all the requests we get from fans, this album has to be one of the most asked for." 

      "When we started out in the early 2000's I never thought vinyl would ever be a thing again, but since it has risen in popularity it's become something of a bucket-list thing to get our debut album (and the other ones of course) out on vinyl, so naturally we're very happy to be able to reissue these on vinyl," Rexon concludes.
