About Heavens Edge
Heaven's Edge was an obscure glam metal band from the early '90s, consisting of members Reggie Wu (guitars, keyboards), Mark Evans (vocals), David Rath (drums), Steven Parry (guitars), and George "G.G." Guidotti (bass). Formed in April of 1987 in Philadelphia, PA, the quintet specialized in the same style of music that such bands as Mötley Crüe, Ratt, and Poison had taken to the top of the charts and a demo led to a recording contract with Columbia Records. The group issued a self-titled debut in 1990 (which was overseen by renowned heavy metal producer Neil Kernon [Dokken, Queensrÿche]), but when it went nowhere shortly after release, the group split from Columbia. With the musical tides abruptly changing in the early '90s from pretty boy glam metal to stripped-down alternative rock, Heaven's Edge split up in 1992 after a development deal with Capitol Records led to a dead end. Some of the group's former members formed another outfit, American Pie, which eventually broke up, as well. But in 1998, Heaven's Edge reunited upon being signed by the European label MTM and they finished up tracks that were left unfinished back in 1992, issuing it under the title of Some Other Place/Some Other Time in 1999. The same year, the group also covered Mötley Crüe's "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" for a Crüe tribute album, and in 2001, began work on an all-new studio album.
