PARADISE LOST Medusa

Album · 2017 · Death-Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
The ultimate and classic death-doom release by Paradise Lost

Medusa makes the hardest fans of death-doom metal and Paradise Lost in particular to exclaim. This exceptional album consists of long, dark, slow and elaborate works and makes the metalheads' blood to boil. There are not any sterile, boring or unnecessary parts on the album, as well as any production problems which used to be presented on the early heavier releases by the band. The inclusion of keyboards is very skillful and enchanting, while inserting additional volume and style to the album. Real masterpiece by Paradise Lost this time without exceptions and excuses and a strong candidate for best album of the band to date.

PARADISE LOST The Plague Within

Album · 2015 · Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
The 14th studio album made by Paradise Lost marks an intensive return to a havier sound and voice. In addition to the slower music and heavy riffs, the listener is able to hear harsh vocals and even death growls which have not been in use for the band since the early era. The album is a true example of a harder gothic doom metal, but yet is unable to provoke and surprise in most of its sections in my opinion. It is a typical example of band's direction from here on, which will have continued and developed in the next releases. Best landmark song: Victim of the Past.

PARADISE LOST Tragic Idol

Album · 2012 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
The thirteenth studio album made by death / doom / gothic Godfathers Paradise Lost is a strong return to form and is characterized with catchy slow gothic metal sound with elements of doom metal. Yet the songs are quite memorable, but the solos and the musical lines are quite heavier than during the last fifteen years or something. The album marks the new polished era for the heavier sound of the band, because the last time they made such heavy music, they have been unexperienced with obvious weaknesess either in production or in songwring process of the songs. Classy record recommended even for fans of different metal subgenres!

PARADISE LOST Shades of God

Album · 1992 · Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
While departing from the previous death growls signing the music is changing as well during the writing and recording sessions for the third Paradise Lost studio album - Shades of God. It is noticeable how the band is progressing in terms of songwritig abilities, writing lyrics, which are the band's landmark, the stable vocals made by Nick Holmes, as well as the solos of the Greg Mackintosh. While this album delivers a lot of good doom and gothic melodies, it still contains some "rookie syndrome" elements in the compositions. There are some unfinished ideas at the end fo the composition and they finished let say even unexpectedly. Overall: Strong progress for the band and very strong classic album after all.

PARADISE LOST Gothic

Album · 1991 · Death-Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Gothic is the second album by the Godfathers of death / doom / gothic metal. Being definitely rather influential record for the genre it contains a lot of early Paradise Lost anthems. The style in harsh and slow, as do the vocals. The production of the album is quite mediocre and the musicians were still looking their shape. Gothic as a name gave the direction of the band for long years to come, but it is not a gothic album itself. Recommended for all fans of the band and genre, and yet do not expect miracles from this unpolished studio record.

    I appeal for addiotn of my favourite vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes to hard rock subgenre. Although his solo music contains funk soul elements, it's yet hard rock in general. http://www.glennhughes.com/
