PARADISE LOST ICON reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Paradise Lost used to be one of those bands I just don't get. On Icon they show off a fairly straight down the line gothic metal sound showing mild influences of the death and doom metal which used to saturate their sound. At first it left me cold, particularly in the light of their groundbreaking first two albums, but the passage of time and the erosion of my expectations has worked wonders on it.

The main thing about Icon is that, whilst Shades of God showed flirtations with gothic metal as well as a drift into a more mainstream sound, Icon really accelerates that a lot. If you are expecting anything remotely like the band's early works, you're just going to find it confusing. Stay the course, though, and an engaging, accessible gothic metal release gradually reveals itself. There's actual keyboards on here - pretty, twinkling keyboards! Who could have expected such a thing after the deliciously grotesque riffs of Gothic or Lost Paradise?
