Edge of Forever - Native Soul


Recommended Posts



From Frontiers:

The next Edge of Forever album ”Native Soul” will be released on December 6, 2019. Ahead of the release, we present the song "Take Your Time", a tribute to Marcel Jacob, who passed away 10 years ago today. The song will appear on the new album.

Here’s a message from Alessandro Del Vecchio about the song:

"It's no secret that Marcel Jacob was essential to my career. Who knows my story is aware of how close Marcel and I were. He was my mentor and my friend and I wouldn't be here if he didn't take the bet on me and Edge Of Forever 16 years ago. I was just a punk from Italy but he listened to a demo I gave him at a concert and invested his time and talent on our music. I still cherish the times we spent in the studio, on the road and those sessions with Jeff Scott Soto who joined us for the recordings. On July 21st 2009 we were all hit by the sad news of his passing and still today that void is impossible to fill. I still believe Marcel has been the unsung hero of our genre, genius player, writer, producer and a very loyal friend. I always felt I was never able to find a way to thank him enough but I think he would be proud of seeing where I am today. "Take Your Time" is my letter to Marcel, a letter a friend who changed my life and my carrier. Thank you Marre, I hope you really found your peace of mind, wherever you are now. We miss you!" - Alessandro

New video for 'Native Soul'.

More info:

Sporting a dynamic and renewed lineup featuring founding member, producer, singer, and keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio, guitarist Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere), bass player Nik Mazzucconi (Labyrinth), and drummer Marco Di Salvia (Hardline), Edge Of Forever are back with what is easily their strongest album to date, which heads back to the heavier, but still melodic, sound of their acclaimed debut album.

Originally formed by Del Vecchio in 2002, Edge Of Forever released three very well received albums: “Feeding The Fire," produced by Marcel Jacob (Yngwie Malmsteen, Talisman) and “Let The Demon Rock ’n’ Roll,” produced by Bobby Barth (Axe, Blackfoot) - both featuring Bob Harris (Axe, Frank Zappa) on vocals - as well as “Another Paradise,” which saw Alessandro Del Vecchio take over the lead vocal position and production duties. 

Years of artistic collaboration between Alessandro Del Vecchio and Frontiers have led to some simply amazing records and “Native Soul” is no exception! Anthemic songs, epic choruses, bombastic production, and a deep, strong vocal performance are the foundation of the album. 

"I've been eager to reach the sound we have now as a band for years,” says Alessandro. "I chased very hard what I envisioned when I wrote these songs, but the final result exceeded my expectations! The band is tighter, tougher, and classier than ever. Honestly, I couldn't be happier and more pumped about it. Edge Of Forever always had those classic rock and neoclassical elements that could remind one of Talisman, Yngwie Malmsteen, and House Of Lords, but this time we wanted to take the strong melodic, hard bluesy edge that bands like Tangier have and blend it all together." 

Since Alessandro Del Vecchio teamed up with Frontiers he has since became a reference name in the hard rock world, being the producer, songwriter and musician behind successful albums with the likes of Hardline, Jorn, Revolution Saints, The End Machine, Find Me, First Signal, Harem Scarem, House Of Lords, and many others. Beside being one of the most talented musicians in the scene, Alessandro is also known for his high tenor soulful voice. Aldo Lonobile was the first choice when the band was ready to enter the studio. Loaded with a great attitude and undeniable talents, Aldo’s guitar playing fits like a glove for Edge Of Forever. His aggressive rhythm guitars and powerful but soaring guitar solos give new life to the sound of the band. Still forged as a metal/hard rock guitarist, Aldo’s guitar work on the album allows the listener to have a new perspective of him as a player, with bluesy solos and melodic phrasings. Nik Mazzucconi is the only member left - with Alessandro - from the last album “Another Paradise” and his playing pairs perfectly with powerful drummer Marco Di Salvia, already a bandmate of Alessandro in Hardline. 

“Native Soul” is a deep and spiritual record. The Native concepts of Life, Faith and Love for Mother Earth come alive in songs like the title-track “Native Soul”, “Promised Land”, “Carry On”, “Wash Your Sins Away” and the acapella intro of the album “Three Rivers”, turning them all into anthems about life strength and motivation. ""Native Soul" is a very positive record and I want people to listen to these songs with a smile on their faces and enjoy a band pouring blood, sweat, and love into every single note. It's my vision of the world, of life, and faith and gives a strong message of never letting anything stop you,” concludes Alessandro.
