Profile `Let the demon rock’n roll’ is the second album by Italian melodic hard rock band `Edge of Forever’, originally released in 2005. Having discovered the band through their latest album which left a strong impression, I was very keen to getting this earlier album. And it is another great release from `Edge of Forever’. The line up once again features leader and hard rock visionary Alessandro del Vecchio on keyboards, guitarist Matteo Carnio, bass player Christian Grillo and lead singer Bob Harris, the inevitable focal point of the band with a vocal ability to match that of Glenn Hughes (during his AOR days).

For those new to `Edge of forever’ you can expect large melodic keyboards, plenty of guitar shredding yet most importantly, Vecchio knows how to write a great chorus while Harris is capable of adding all the drama and expressiveness without sacrificing technique.

In comparison to their latest album `Another paradise’, this second album proves equally as good-or perhaps-slightly better as both albums demonstrate songwriting of similar level yet the lyrics and the performances on `Let the demon…’ are somewhat more memorable than their latest album. For example it does not take more than one play for the listener to recall the chorus of the final track `Edge of forever’, the same goes for `One last surrender’; `Shades of November’ holds tons melody while the opening track `The machine’ will probably have you singing along its chorus.

One has to admit the cover artwork could have been more inspiring-still the material inside is proven consistent, intense and memorable. Overall a great choice for fans of melodic hard rock.
