PARADISE LOST, the godfathers of gothic metal, have returned with a stunning new offering, In Requiem, which marks a return to the bandâ€™s trademark heavy sound. To get a full impression of this brilliant dark opus, fans can now stream the entire album on the bandâ€™s official MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/paradiselostuk. Note that the album can be streamed only for one week, so check it out now!
The album, produced by Rhys Fulber and mixed by Mike Fraser, is set for a June 5th U.S. release.
Few bands can match PARADISE LOST‘s storied career album for stellar album. Even fewer bands can say they helped found an entirely new genre of music, something these Brits achieved in 1991 with the release of Gothic. As wildly influential as the band has been to acts like HIM and THE RASMUS, they remain as relevant as their modern followers through subtle reinvention and a continued dedication to quality songcraft.
PARADISE LOST will make their triumphant return to the U.S. with NIGHTWISH in October. See below for their complete itinerary.
