"Edge of chaos" is the third album from acclaimed Progressive Doom band Blue Dawn.
After two fine albums well received worldwide, "Edge of chaos" is definitely Blue Dawn' s best and more mature album, showcasing a varied choice of material, ranging from doom metal to dark and progressive rock and sounding, at times, like a cross between King Crimson and Celtic Frost. The latter band is also covered on the album, with a stunning rendition of "Sorrows of the moon".
Special guests on the album are Freddy Delirio (Death SS), who wrote and played keyboards on the first track, "The presence" and ex Malombra' s guitar player Matteo Ricci, who played a marvellous guitar solo on the record' s most experimental track, "Baal' s demise".
Certainly one of the best albums of 2017, not to be missed!
