The band was originally a metal project of Eero Maijala and Janne Mieskonen, who formed it in 2007 under the name Damage in Espoo, Finland. First demo was recorded in 2007 wherein Maijala played guitars, basses & keyboards and Mieskonen played the drums.

Lenno Linjama joined Damage in early 2009 and another demo was made the same year. In late 2010, the band was complemented with guitarist-singer Iivo Kaipainen and keyboardist Akseli Savola and the band was renamed as The Edge of Haze. The band began to record their first full-length with the new line-up in February 2011. Kaipainen left the band during the recordings in September 2011.

The band began to look for a new guitarist/singer, and after a few months of search the line-up was replenished with a long time friend of the band members, Markus Hentunen. Two singles “In the Place Where I Belong” and “Black Lakes” were released from the debut album during winter 2011-2012. The name of the band was simplified during the recordings as Edge Of Haze. The recordings were completed in May 2012. Edge Of Haze’s debut album “Mirage” was released July 25th, 2012. The music video for the song Black Lakes was published on December 16th, 2012.

In 2013 Edge Of Haze was writing and preparing to record new material for their next album. They played some club gigs and their first festival show at Nummirock. Recordings for the follower of Mirage began in July 2013 at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland. The album then went through mixing by Tuomas Yli-Jaskari (Tracedawn) and mastering by Acle Kahney (TesseracT) and was finished in December 2013.

In July 2014 the band announced the coming of their second album “Illumine” which is to be released on August 21st. First single and music video “Crushed” was released on August 1st.
