Finland’s EDGE OF HAZE are set to release their new album Illumine on August 21 2014. While the band may have roots in doom metal and gothic rock, they do not lack originality. They bring forth their atmospheric music with a touch of modernity.
The album is loosely based on the book Escape From Camp 14. The novel is about a man dwelling in a dusty city under totalitarian regime who realizes his submission to this way of life. After seeing a vision about his city burning, the protagonist decides to attempt an escape and set out to find the landscape of his soul, however he finds it very hard to disconnect from the past.
