Emerald Edge

With “Live at Rockin’ Rooster Club”, the prog metal quartet Emerald Edge releases their first live album as a follow-up to the 2017 album “Surreal”. This extraordinary recording of the concert at Rockin’ Rooster Club contains four new songs as well as eight carefully selected tracks from their previous albums: “Surreal”, “By The Light Of The Dark Star” and “The Mirror Speaks”.

With their sophisticated progressive metal – some songs can even go beyond the 20-minute format – the five thoroughbred musicians of Emerald Edge have made a good-sounding name for themselves in the region and have proven at numerous concerts since their formation in the fall of 2003 that they are masters of their craft.

The idea for Emerald Edge came from the two remaining founding members Volker Faas, guitar, and Martin Wendler, bass and backing vocals, both avowed fans of genre greats such as Dream Theater, Rush and Marillion, as well as Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and Metallica. Initially starting out as an instrumental trio, female vocals were added to the band’s original compositions for two years in 2004. The current singer and violinist, Alice Aschauer, joined in 2006; drummer Artur Wlossek has been a permanent member of the band since 2009.

On their live album, Emerald Edge once again demonstrate their courage for melody, which does not mean that a single song only has to consist of a chorus and verse: The opposite is the case – other bands would find enough material for five or six songs in one number by the combo. With this album, comprising a total of 12 compositions, they once again underline their credo of setting themselves no musical boundaries, thinking outside the genre box and constantly facing new challenges. And it is not least thanks to Alice Aschauer’s electric violin and Martin Wendler’s didgeridoo that the polished emerald not only sparkles, but also begins to shine unexpectedly.

Emerald Edge have already proven their ability to enchant the audience with their music and unique performance at numerous concerts.
