Hollywood, California, industrial-rock band Black Lodge have released their self-titled debut EP today–it’s available now on iTunes–as well as officially announced their fall 2013 US tour itinerary with select Pop Evil support dates.

The six-song Black Lodge debut EP is the first half of the band’s full-length upcoming 13-song concept album, The Diary of Tomahawk, due out in 2014, which tells the... story of an American witch named Tomahawk and her descent through a world of the occult, alchemy and ritualistic magic. Black Lodge’s debut six-song EP was written and recorded at The Realm Creative in Los Angeles by Black Lodge with co-producers and co-songwriters Johnny Royal, Gavin Reign, Jeordie White/Twiggy Ramirez, Lee Miles, Zach Webb, Sean Beavan and Johnny K.

 In celebration of the EP release, Black Lodge has launched a giveaway for a chance to win a Gibson Les Paul Epiphone signed by the band and Twiggy Ramirez, as well as an Orange Crush CR 120H–for entry details, click here. Black Lodge have also made the first three chapters of their upcoming graphic novel illustrated by Marvel Comics artist Wayne Robinson available for free download on their website.

“Growing up, I would fully immerse myself into the bands that I loved: Iron Maiden, The Misfits, Marilyn Manson, Morbid Angel, NIN,” says Black Lodge founder and lead guitarist, Johnny Royal. “When I started writing this record, I wanted to create the same experience for the listener that made me fall in love with music when I was a kid: memorable songs, great videos and cool artwork. We brought all of those elements into this record and have incorporated a great deal of alchemy and the occult in our songwriting process and story arch.”

The Edge Of Paradise

Edge of Paradise might be a new band, but when your debut album includes the rhythm section of bassist Tony Franklin (Blue Murder, The Firm) and drummer Gregg Bissonette (David Lee Roth Band), you know you're already in great shape. Now add the powerhouse vocals of Margarita Monet and Dave Bates' towering guitars and you have yourself a record essential to any fan of melodic metal.

      Formed by Monet and Bates in 2011, Edge Of Paradise debut release 'Mask' (Co written with Robin Mc Auley ) that came at #6 most added on national CMJ radio, right behind Machine Head and Five Finger Death Punch. An album chockfull of industrial-tinged metal coupled with soaring vocal hooks, was greatly received by critics and fans worldwide. Legendary Rock Interviews stated "Once in a while a new band comes along that not only has a unique sound of its’ own but draws upon all the things we love about metal or rock to begin with. Edge of Paradise are one of the best independent bands to come out of L.A. in some time."

       Edge Of Paradise has been gearing up for the new year with new music and big plans. The group immediately began writing to showcase the bands maturity and define the direction that was pre-empted by “Mask”. Working with legendary Michael Wagener on the mix of the songs and recording with grammy winning producer Bob Kulick (Kiss, Motorhead), the new songs will be a showcase for the staggering growth and maturity, achieved since the release of the “Mask”.

Edge Of Paradise knows how to bring it live. HardRockHaven stated, "Don’t be fooled by her angelic personality and beauty, Monet’s power and intensity will grab you by the neck and won’t let go until your head is blown off by her unearthly vocal range, hitting the notes most singers would not dare to attempt. Guitarist, Dave Bates is the epitome of sheer effortless virtuosity; this guy will make all guitar players either Idolize or hate him, as there are very few guitarists on this Earth that can shred like Bates."
