Edge Of The World are a band formed shortly after Russian poet Vladimir took part in the recording of the album “My Book Of Answers” with Rock legend Ken Hensley (ex-Uriah Heep), which was based on Vladimir’s poems. After being introduced to musicians Igor and Anton then pianist Timofey, a spark was lighted and the band was formed. At first the songs were recorded in Russian, but after some translation, the poems have been expressed in their newest offering “Signs.”
The album is well-flowing and well varied. From anthem bangers to more stripped back ballads, there’s something for everyone on this release, and all songs are glued nicely together by Vladimir’s words.
Upon being asked about the inspiration for the album and the title track, Edge Of The World share: “Most of the songs are Vladimir’s personal experiences, the relationship between a man and a woman, but the main song from the album called “Signs”is about something else, something maybe even mystical, hidden side of our life. Global issues are regulated by a small group of people, very rich people, we can say that our world is ruled by money, you can buy everything you want, if you have enough money: food, clothing, human resources or even man himself, and this is so sad! Those people who have gathered money and resources, act solely in their own interests, and not in the interests of society. And that’s what this song is about, most people have sold themselves for nothing, they work at a job they don’t like, they buy things they don’t need, they eat junk food, they don’t sleep well and suffer from depression, and why? because they sold themselves for nothing, but sooner or later all this will collapse overnight and people will realise that they are chasing false values.”
The album was written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by one man – Anton Poluykov, he’s also the voice of the band. This should act as a showcase to prove how talented Edge Of The World are, and we can’t wait to see what they do next.
