Paradise Lost Announce Live Album ‘At The Mill’

Paradise Lost Announce Live Album ‘At The Mill’

Remember, remember, the Fifth Of November? Last autumn, British metal legends PARADISE LOST exorcised the demons and ghosts of a dreary dry spell without concerts and thrilled the world with their stunning livestream “At The Mill”. Today, the band is proud to announce the captured testimony of this special night to be released as a live album on July 16th (Nuclear Blast).
Captured at The Mill, Bradford, near the band’s hometown in Yorkshire, England, the recording of the BluRay was directed by Ash Pears, who previously worked with the band on their music videos for ‘Medusa’ and ‘Obsidian’. Mixed by Les Smith and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano, the audio version of the show will be available in various formats including CD, Blu-Ray and different vinyl colours.

To bring back bittersweet memories from better days when concerts were still a thing, the band have released a haunting yet beautiful live version from “Darker Thoughts” that you can watch here:
“Due to the ban on live music, we, like many other bands, have had to adapt and do something we never thought we’d have to do”, reflects guitarist and songwriter Greg Mackintosh on the release. “No, not stacking shelves in Aldi like Metallica, but playing a show at a disused mill in Yorkshire with no one else there. We decided against trying to pretend there was an audience in the room with us, opting instead for a rather moribund version of a live lounge show. Whilst never being pleased with anything, we were however slightly less miserable at the result. It was also almost fun playing some of our new album Obsidian within the set for the first time too. We can now announce that we will be releasing this show as an official CD/Blu-Ray and vinyl imaginatively entitled At the Mill.” 
PARADISE LOST will tour next February together with MOONSPELL in the United Kingdom.

Formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire, in 1988, PARADISE LOST were unlikely candidates for metal glory when they slithered from the shadows and infiltrated the UK underground. But not content with spawning an entire subgenre with early death/doom masterpiece ‘Gothic’ nor with conquering the metal mainstream with the balls-out power of 1995’s ‘Draconian Times’, they have subsequently traversed multiple genre boundaries with skill and grace, evolving through the pitch-black alt-rock mastery of ‘90s classics ‘One Second’ and ‘Host’ to the muscular but ornate grandeur of 2009’s ‘Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us’ and ‘Tragic Idol’ (2012), with the nonchalant finesse of grand masters. The band’s last two albums – ‘The Plague Within’ (2015) and ‘Medusa’ (2017) – saw a much celebrated return to brutal, old school thinking, via two crushing monoliths to slow-motion death and spiritual defeat. Consistently hailed as one of metal’s most charismatic live bands, PARADISE LOST arrive in this new decade as veterans, legends and revered figureheads for several generations of gloomy metalheads.

Paradise Lost Announce New Album ‘Obsidian’ / Out On 15th May

Paradise Lost Announce New Album ‘Obsidian’ / Out On 15th May

Obsidian… dark, reflective and black: it’s a pretty decent description of the music that PARADISE LOST have been making over the last 32 years, even though this most resilient of British metal bands have stoically refused to be pinned down to one easily defined formula. Powered by a lust for creativity and a stout devotion to haunting heaviness, PARADISE LOST have defied the odds by coming back stronger than ever over the past decade .
“Obsidian”, the new album of Gothic legends PARADISE LOST will be released on 15th May.

Album Review: Paradise Lost – Believe In Nothing Remixed/Remastered Re-Release

Album Review: Paradise Lost – Believe In Nothing Remixed/Remastered Re-Release

Believe In Nothing was one of those rare albums which managed to be a disappointment and also be underrated at the same time. When it was originally released in 2001 I don’t think anyone was happy with it. Paradise Lost fans either wanted the band to return to their goth metal roots or take the band’s newer electro inspired sound to another level. The record label wanted them to become more mainstream. I don’t think the band really knew what they wanted but they weren’t allowed an opinion if the rumours surrounding the album are correct. Having said that Continue reading →
