Edge of Ever is a Greek/German Metal Band formed in December 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
This isn´t your typical band with members who used to hang out together as kids and decided to make a band nor it is a partnership between well- established musicians from different bands of the local scene .The members of Edge of Ever couldn´t be more different from one another : Different nationalities , age , language , musical experience and even different tastes in the very diverse genres of heavy metal music.
It is not important how we found each other but why. We joined to put together the neglections, frustrations, the passion and the dreams into what makes everything have sense: music.By doing so ,we became a group of brothers who through our music address different issues of society . Subjects such as lack of justice , human apathy , egoism , destroying our own world , violence and extremism are all projected and confronted throughout the songs of Edge of Ever.
The music itself is hard to define . The love of pure old-school heavy metal is there , which combined with progressive , melodic arrangements and even breakdowns , makes it hard to classify as a specific genre.

Minas Marston - Vocals
James Smith - Bass
Ralph Swan Krieger- Keyboards
Tom Kruse - Guitar
Ioulios Georgiou - Guitar

Since their humble beginnings in Karlstad, Sweden, back in 2011, Eyes Wide Open have become one of the forerunners in the Swedish Metal Scene. With clear melodies and catchy riffs they deliver an immense sound as they lead the way in the Melodic Death Metal genre.
Spring 2012 saw the release of their debut EP “Revelations” which was followed by their fist album “Aftermath”. In less than two years Eyes Wide Open have gained a dedicated fan base with 15 fan clubs across the globe; something which is rarely seen!
Having performed at the legendary Sweden Rock Festival and supported Hatebreed in an Eastern European tour, it is evident that the response to “Aftermath” was phenomenal. The band built on this success with the release of the single “Blindead” which they supported with multiple performances across Europe including the headliner slot at the Swedish Metal Invasion tour in 2016. Their music is aired on radio channels globally and Eyes Wide Open have gained a loyal following of 50K+ fans and counting!
2016/2017, E.W.O come back to life with the highly anticipated third and final part of their pre- announced album trilogy. Erik Engstrand has stepped up as the bands new vocalist to cement Eyes Wide Open as a cutting edge entity. With Erik leading the way and the band at it’s peak they are about to unleash a full force melodic death metal album. Production and mixing is by Gustav Ydenius (MUSTASCH, SPARZANZA, THE DEAD AND LIVING). With “Aftermath”, released in 2013, the band presents an ultimatum as to how we can continue living in this world. “And so it Begins” takes on the perspective of today, where we stand with all of our problems like wars, environmental disasters and our addiction to luxury. Will the revelations be proved to be true?
Frontman Erik states the following about the upcoming release: "People probably thought that the band was over with the departure of Patrik but we pulled through big time. It is with no hesitation that I think we are now stronger than ever! With ”And so it Begins” we prove ourselves among the top players and now I´m just thrilled to get out there to kick some ass".
