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 Gothic

UMUR
"Gothic" is the 2nd full-length studio album by UK doom/death metal act Paradise Lost. The album was released through Peaceville Records in March 1991. The early nineties UK scene was a hot spot for doom/death metal. Acts like My Dying Bride, Cathedral, Anathema and of course Paradise Lost took the ultra heavy beats of 70s and 80s doom metal artists like Black Sabbath and Trouble and combined them with the brutality and rawness of the, at the time, new death metal style. Paradise Lost debut full-length studio album "Lost Paradise (1990)" was generally well received by both fans and critics alike and are widely regarded as one of the earliest examples of the doom/death metal style. Paradise Lost was never content to stagnate though and already mixed in elements from other styles on "Gothic".

Unlike what the title may suggest the music on "Gothic" isn´t as such gothic metal. That term wasn´t even coined at that point. The band play around with dark gothic atmospheres, clean female vocals and some orchestration, but the basis in the music is still doom/death metal. It´s more melodic than the case was on the debut album and quite often the heavy doomy riffs are accompanied by melancholic lead guitar themes. The tracks are epic in nature and there are moments of monumental beauty on display several times during the playing time. The way the tracks are arranged they give you a breathtaking effect when they build to their epic climaxes. There is no better example than when the growling vocals kick in after the intro to the title track. Such powerful emotions on display there. The vocal delivery is absolutely fantastic on the album. The female vocals are alright, but it´s the growling vocals by Nick Holmes that take the prize. Powerful, brutal and intelligible. Probably one of the most commanding growling vocal performances I´ve yet encountered. The choice to put him real high in the mix is brilliant to my ears.

While there are certainly goth tinged and melodic tracks on the album like "Angel Tears" and "Eternal", "Gothic" is not a soft type doom/death metal release and tracks like "Dead Emotion" and "Falling Forever" pull in a more brutal direction albeit still maintaining a melodic edge. However a clear development towards a more melodic sound is heard even in the most brutal tracks compared to the more raw and brutal "Lost Paradise (1990)".

Upon release "Gothic" almost instantly found an audience who understood the groundbreaking nature of the album and in retrospect it´s obvious that not many other albums from that time sounded like this (what happened in the following years is another story). The combination of dark gothic atmospheres, lead guitar melodies, brutal growling and crushingly heavy doomy riffs was quite unique. Personally this was a favorite of mine for years, but while I still enjoy the album and hear great qualities in the music, there are also features on the album that I´ve become more critical about over the years. The bad quality drumming in particular but also the sound production, which might suit the music perfectly, but does feature a couple of technical errors that to my ears are slight issues. So "Gothic" is one of those nostalgic albums that I would have rated with a 5 star (100%) rating when it was released, but now I feel a 4 star (80%) rating is more appropriate. It´s however still a highly recommendable doom/death metal album packed in gothic atmospheres and I still haven´t listened to any other album that sounds quite like it.

When one sees that this is subtitled ‘The Rarities’ then one will realise exactly what we have here, a compilation of tunes from throughout the band’s career that somehow didn’t make it onto an album. One thing about a collection over this period of time is that it really displays just how many styles the bands have worked through, all in their own distinctive style. This is an album for those who already know and love the band, as opposed to a newbie, but I don’t think anyone could fail to fall in love with their Spear of Destiny cover “Never Take Me Alive” which is dark and heavy, yet light and appealing all at the same time. There are times when they are broody and dramatic, others when there Pete Steele’s bastard offspring and others when they show just how musical and thoughtful they really can be. Of course, it isn’t possible to listen to “Missing” without comparing it to the original by Everything But The Girl, but they have given it much more depth and passion than I would have though possible and this is way better than the pop version.

Alongside the 12 rarities, the guys have also included two new version of old songs that they deliberately recorded as if they were demos, bringing back producer Simon Efemey, who of course worked on their ‘Shades of God’, ‘Icon’ and ‘Draconian Times’ recordings. These are all about the guys having some fun in the studio, and it shows. So, this is indispensible for fans of the band, and if you have ever wondered what all the fuss is about then this actually isn’t a bad place to start, and is way better than most ‘B-side’ compilations you’ll come across.

Paradise Lost's One Second sees the band more or less abandoning all pretence of still retaining elements of the deathdoom sound of their early years, instead offering up a jaunt through the heavier end of gothic rock - they remind me a little of a slightly heavier Fields of the Nephilim from around the Dawnrazor period. Purists who are very fond of the preceding albums like Icon or Draconian Times may feel a little betrayed by this one, but personally I find this style much more enjoyable than their murky deathdoom era. Approach with an open mind and don't on hearing anything that's especially like their preceding material.

"Lost In Time" is a free compilation sampler album released in June 2012 through Century Media Records. The sampler is available for free download (limited to 4,400 downloads) on Metal Sucks.net. In contrast to other compilations/best of albums "Lost In Time" does not necessarily feature the band´s best or most popular songs, but instead the compilation features 1 track from each of Paradise Lost´s 13 albums from "Lost Paradise (1990)" to "Tragic Idol (2012)".

"Lost In Time" is quite an interesting journey through the band´s discography and it successfully documents Paradise Lost´s development from a rather brutal doom/death metal act, to a gothic tinged doom metal act, to a fully fledged goth rock/metal act and back to a gothic tinged doom metal act. "Nothing Sacred" from "Host (1999)" is the odd one out here, with it´s pop flavoured Depeche Mode worship, but that of course goes for the full "Host (1999)" album, which is probably the most unpopular album in the band´s discography. Other than that one, "Lost In Time" features quite a few "classics" like "Eternal" from "Gothic (1991)", "As I Die" from "Shades of God (1992)", "True Belief" from "Icon (1993)" and "Say Just Words" from "One Second (1997)". Tracks like "Erased", "The Enemy" and "Honesty in Death" from later albums are also quality material IMO.

Rating a compilation is always a bit tricky. Overall the quality of the material ranges from great to mediocre, but if you take into consideration the purpose of a sampler compilation, I think "Lost In Time" fully succeeds in it´s mission to document the musical development of Paradise Lost over the course of their first 13 albums. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is warranted.

PARADISE LOST Tragic Idol

"Tragic Idol" is the 13th full-length studio album by UK, Halifax doom/goth metal veterans Paradise Lost. The album was released through Century Media Records in April 2012. After releasing more goth oriented material for a number of years/albums, Paradise Lost returned to a more doom oriented metal sound on "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us (2009)". They didn´t completely shed their goth metal leanings though and "Tragic Idol" somewhat follows a similar approach. Regarding the lineup the band have recruited former At the Gates, The Haunted and Cradle of Filth drummer Adrian Erlandsson to fill the vacant drummer position.

The music on the album is predominantly mid-paced doomy metal with gothic traits. Lead vocalist Nick Holmes sings using both clean vocals and more raw type singing. The riffs and rythms are heavy and there is an omnipresence of lead guitar themes on the album. the electronic/synth sounds that the band have used a lot on most of their post "Draconian Times (1995)" albums, are few and far between on "Tragic Idol", giving the album a more raw doomy edge just like the case was with it´s direct predecessor. the sound production is pretty clean and polished though so in that respect "Tragic Idol" isn´t that raw an album. If I have to mention a couple of new things I hear on the album it´s the use of more groove based riffing in tracks like "Crucify" and "Theories From Another World" and a more dominant use of double pedalling. The latter is probably the footprint of new drummer Adrian Erlandsson.

As far as overall quality goes I think "Tragic Idol" is a yet another good Paradise Lost album. It´s seldom excellent though but that can be said about so many of the band´s albums that "Tragic Idol" doesn´t stand out as something special in that regard. If you enjoyed the more doomy and guitar oriented sound of "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us (2009)" and imagine a more polished version of that album, "Tragic Idol" will probably please you too. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
