Former Rainbow and Deep Purple vocalist Joe Lynn Turner today tells us about the song "Edge of Tomorrow" which is the title track from the new Sunstorm album. Here is the story:

After the release of the Rated X album, I wanted to go back to the more melodic sound of Sunstorm, but also wanted to retain some of the harder edge of the Rated X sound. I asked producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio to come up with some new songs in that vein. Del Vecchio hooked up with guitarist Simone Mularoni. Together they developed songs which were exactly what I wanted and this track is one of the highlights as well as the title track

We went harder... stronger... and heavier than ever before without losing the integrity of what the project is about... I call it melodic metal! The song is very well crafted, the message is profound, the performances amazing and the sound is incredible! "'Edge Of Tomorrow' is basically a lyric about the apocalypse that's happening right now and the geopolitical situation in our world.

We also made a video to go with the single and there is a great story tied into that. I chose Vikos Gorge as the location. It is the deepest and longest canyon in the world, the canyon of the Gods. This is where all of civilization started. The producer and director, Menelaos is a visionary and an incredible artist, and he knew that this particular location was where we should do this, where we should show the world what is happening in symbology, in symbolic form. Menelaos name comes from the king of Sparta and he really made a spectacular video.

All of the scenes you see in the video are real, except the eagle, which is CG. I was really walking along the ledge with this huge drop off below my feet. When I was standing on some of those mountainous peaks, I did get a little vertigo but got used to it after awhile.

As for the eagle, he represents the freedom that people should have instead of the enslavement which the world has become from the geopolitical powers. That is part of the essence of what the song is about.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about the album right here!
