Edge of the World

Mark Boals - Edge of the World - reviewed by: ChaosLord
Anyways, Mark Boals is a damn good vocalist, there is no doubt about that. It even appears that he has picked up some guitar knowledge from the "Swedish Shredder". Edge of the World overall is pretty good. It has it's bad moments, like some albums, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised.
There is a lot of musicians that help out Boals on his CD most notably Tony Macalpine of Planet X and Vinny Appice formerly of Black Sabbath. Boals voice sounds as good and as strong as when he first started with Malmsteen with Rising Force. "Lady Babylon" and "Garden of Pain" are the two tracks that stand out most to me. They just have some great guitar work and Boals really cuts loose with his vocals. The only song I really didn't get into was "Up To You", a slow ballady type song. Just not a lot to say about it. But overall this was a good CD.
I haven't heard his previous release, "Ring of Fire", but if it is anything like this disc, I will definitely check it out. I wish good luck to Mark Boals in his future endeavors. Check out this CD if you are a fan of Mark Boals, and even if you're not, give it a shot...you might be pleasantly surprised.
