The Skinny: Edge Of Haze are a new alternative metal band from Espoo, Finland. Taking influences from groups such as Katatnoia and Opeth, Edge Of Haze’s songs come across as both ethereal and enthralling. Not sure what to think? Let your ears do the work and just grab this free download of the track “Black Lakes”.
Founded in 2007 by Eero Maijala and Janne Mieskonen, in the beginning the band was called Damage in which Eero played guitars, bass and keyboards and Janne played the drums. Their first demo was recorded later that year. The band would evolve and their current incarnation released their debut album Mirage on June 26, 2012. While “Black Lakes” is an excellent preview of this phenomenal album and band, the rest of the disc can be heard (and purchased) on their Bandcamp page.
