More Info:

2023 release. Edge of Forever has never been so active since the 2019 reunion, returning to the scene with two strong albums: "Native Soul" and the critically acclaimed "Seminole" (2022). The new musical path made of heavier guitars, epic choruses, and the finest and richest arrangements have brought the band to a much bigger crowd, expanding their spectrum from a mere Hard Rock band. The motivational lyrics, infused with Positive Mental Attitude and Stoicism, all under the Native American spiritual culture, are now a trademark of the band and with "Ritual", when you thought you couldn't dig deeper into these subjects, the band explores and even goes straight to the core matter that afflicted a minority: the Residential Schools tragedy. Ritual tells the story of the last two indigenous people speaking a language soon to be forgotten. The twins, a boy and a girl, were sent to two different Residential Schools and were told that there was no one else left from their nation and they needed to forget everything they might remember from it, either language or culture. Secretly, they continue practicing their idiom, hoping to escape and find their twin somewhere in the world. The boy ends up escaping school and starts a lifelong journey which leads him to meeting his sister on his bed of death. The album tells a story of pride, strength, pain, but also ultimate joy and fulfillment in being who you truly and deeply are.
