PARADISE LOST picture
Paradise Lost - initally one of the premier death/doom bands (along with their former labelmates Anathema and My Dying Bride) that later incorporated electronic elements in their music. They formed in 1988 in Halifax, UK. Along with bands like Dream Death, Sempiternal Deathreign, Asphyx, Winter etc... they are also credited for helping develop the subgenre known as "gothic" metal.

Ironically, the band is almost unknown in their home country, but in mainland Europe they have been extremely popular for many years, especially in Greece, Germany and Bulgaria (most of the people from Plovdiv town), where they are regarded as mainstream rock stars. Although they have also been partially attributable for pioneering gothic metal, throughout their career the band have also confounded fans and critics alike with their perpetual taste for reinvention and experimentation, a desire to work with producers from other musical genres, and an oft-stated refusal to repeat themselves

PARADISE LOST Shades of God

Album · 1992 · Death-Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Shades of God" is the 3rd full-length studio album by UK doom metal act Paradise Lost. The album was released through Music For Nations in July 1992. Their first two albums were released through Peaceville Records, so a label change has taken place. But other changes had happened too and in many ways "Shades of God" signals the start of a new era for Paradise Lost (or maybe more correctly the start of the transition to a new era). Not in the lineup though, as the lineup, who recorded the first two albums, is still intact.

It´s more in the sound and style of the actual music that you´ll hear the difference from the earlier more doom/death metal oriented albums. While he would pursue an even more clean type of singing on subsequent releases, Nick Holmes already began the vocal transition on "Shades of God", which features a semi-growling delivery and a few more goth type clean vocals. The overall music style on the album is still doom/death metal though. There is a strong emphasis on lead guitars and lead guitar themes throughout the album, and "Shades of God" is probably the Paradise Lost album which features most guitar leads and guitar solos. It´s still heavy, doomy, and occasionally brutal, but always melodic and drenched in an omnipresent melancholic atmosphere.

The complexity of the song structures is another change that´s quite prominent compared to the earlier releases, and at times tracks like "Crying for Eternity", "No Forgiveness", "Your Hand in Mine" and especially the 9:14 minutes long "Daylight Torn" even touch progressive territories because of it. Some tracks are a bit more straight forward like "Mortals Watch the Day" and "Pity the Sadness", but even those are quite intriguingly structured. The most accessible track on the album is the closing track "As I Die". It was not included on the vinyl version of the album, which is a bit odd, as it went on to become an underground hit for the band, but the album is over 50 minutes long even without "As I Die", and long running times seriously decrease the audio quality of vinyls, so that might be the reason for leaving out "As I Die" on the original vinyl version.

The musicianship are generally on a decent level, with especially the vocals by Nick Holmes (and his lyrics) and the lead guitars by main composer Gregor Mackintosh, as some of the highlights and strengths of the band´s sound, while drummer Matthew Archer again drags the collective performance down. His drumming style is clumsy and too simple for its own good. Once he plays a fill on a track, you can expect to hear the exact same fill being played whenever a fill is called for again on that track. No variation and a very stiff and uncomfortable playing style. It´s not a major issue because of the generaly low pace of the music, but I can´t help think what a more refined and skilled drummer could have added to the music.

"Shades of God" features a rather distinct sounding production. The guitar- and bass tone and the drum sound aren´t necessarily that well sounding with the ears of today, but it was not considered an issue in 1992, where the album was generally regarded as a well produced release. Personally I think the sound suits the music perfectly and when those two features go hand in hand in perfect harmony, I´m not gonna complain about minor technical sound issues. It´s probably an aquired taste anyway.

Overall "Shades of God" is another quality release by Paradise Lost and it shows great development of the band´s sound. So at this point in the band´s career, all three of their studio albums featured a very different sound, and it was obvious at this point, that Paradise Lost were still searching for their own unique sound. Thankfully they produced some really great albums in the process including "Shades of God". A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

This album finds Paradise Lost transitioning between their early death-doom style towards a more accessible style with greater mass appeal. The intent of this new direction - namely, to grow their popularity by shifting out of the intriguing but admittedly rather niche musical world they had crafted with their early work - couldn't be more evident on opening song Mortals Watch the Day, which combines riffs appropriate for the more mainstream Black Sabbath or Trouble albums with a vocal performance which has shades (hah!) of their earlier gruesome death metal growling but which are close to a more mainstream shout. The rest of the album wavers between this style and their previous approach, but as a result of falling between two stools somewhat fails to hold my attention.

It's taken me a long time to warm to the Peaceville school of death-doom metal, and I remain unimpressed by a lot of its products, but finally I have found an album from this stable which makes me say "Yes, this is genuinely a classic worthy of its high reputation". I think what had put me off Gothic before was that I'd come to it expecting an album which sounded at least vaguely similar to the gothic metal that followed it or the gothic rock which was in vogue at the time, and aside from some production touches on the slow lead guitar chords and the like it really isn't like that - it's more of a death-doom album with lyrics dedicated wholly to the same absolute gloom that the goths were exploring but with its style very much in the sickened-to-the-heart gruesome corruption of the death-doom style. An album which makes you truly believe that the universe has died and you are a maggot inside its rotting corpse.

A crucial (if somewhat rudimentary) blueprint for the "Peaceville" sound of death-doom metal which Paradise Lost and their labelmates Anathema and My Dying Bride would become primarily associated with. Lost Paradise has somehow clicked with me after a long while during which I didn't really "get" it, or its associated style. At the end of the day the innovation is really a simple one - take the slow sound of doom metal, use death metal growls and production aesthetics to make it sound dirty and dilapidated - but you have to admit it's a pretty effective idea, and whilst the individual performances here aren't much to write home about the overall atmosphere evoked of grim, quasi-gothic gloom is effective enough to hold the album together.

The Plague Within in some respects seems to be a conscious attempt by Paradise Lost to revisit their roots, with brutal growls alongside the clean singing for the first time since their early years and the gothic elements that had been part of their sound for so long for the most part being set aside.

However, to my ears this isn't so much a recapturing of the death-doom style of their early years as it is a more generic, straight down the middle doom metal style with some death growls. It's entertaining enough in its own way and a good enough listen all the way through, but I can't give it more than, say, three and a half stars or so because it feels like the band have become rather anonymous and generic, without much in the way of a particular sound which is their own.
