After taking a trip back in time with the Draconian Times MMXI DVD/live album (the London legacy show of their classic album from 1995) and also guitarist Gregor Mackintosh‘s return to his doom/death metal roots with VALLENFYRE, PARADISE LOST is recording their 13th studio album.
Gregor Mackintosh (lead guitar) comments, “We are currently holed up in The Chapel studios in Lincolnshire, England recording our new album which is entitled Tragic Idol. The album will again be produced by Jens Bogren and is influenced by classic doom metal and classic metal. I would say it is more melodic than the last record whilst retaining the heaviness. There are lots of guitar solos and melodies. The album will contain such track titles as ‘Honesty in Death,’ ‘Theories from Another World,’ ‘In this We Dwell‘ and the title track ‘Tragic Idol.'”
Tragic Idol is scheduled for a worldwide release through Century Media Records on April 23rd, 2012 in Europe and April 24th, 2012 in North America.
