The new date will be the 3rd April at the Bataclan in Paris, we apologize to anyone who finds this new date inconvenient but we had to do this or the show may have been canceled. We really hope everyone can join us at the revised date & venue for the last gig on this tour! If you have any issues with your tickets, please speak to the person you purchased them from. Thanks."

Vocalist Nick Holmes also commented:

"After the success of the Bochum show selling out we are pleased to be able to announce a last-minute extra date in Cologne at the Luxor on Wed 30th March. As many of you know this date was originally intended to be the Elysee Montmatre show in Paris. Unfortunately, as you are probably aware by now, there was a fire at the Elysee Montmatre which we are all deeply saddened by because we've had many good times there in the past and we're looking forward to playing there again at some point in the future. Despite this tragedy we have managed to arrange an alternative Parisian show at the Bataclan on the 3rd of April. For anyone who wasn't able to buy tickets for Bochum we hope you can join us on the 30th in Koln and celebrate these gigs with us!"

Sunday Old School: Paradise Lost

Ask any fan of gothic metal to name a band which the genre couldn't have survived without, and chances are you will always hear the name, Paradise Lost. They weren't always associated with this style though, after forming in the town of Halifax in 1988, the band were known for their death metal rooted sound, having been inspired by such extreme metal heroes as Celtic Frost and Kreator. Following the recording of two demo casettes, the band signed to Peaceville Records for the release of their first album, "Lost Paradise" in 1990, which featured more of a doom flavoured death metal sound than their later material. Although the album received mixed reviews from critics, fans loved it and their next album, "Gothic," proved to be an even bigger success, now being cited as one of the most influential metal albums of the 90s. "Gothic" saw a change in direction somewhat for the band, utilising female vocals and strings and along with the shift in style, the band changed labels when they signed to Music For Nations, through which they released their next album, "Shades Of God."

Paradise Lost were then able to achieve massive critical success once again, following the release of their fourth album, "Icon." Like, "Gothic," the album was considered a classic and helped the band gain chart success when it entered the German album charts at number 31. Another staple followed shortly afterwards in the form of, "Draconian Times," which is also considered one of the best albums not only from Paradise Lost, but of the goth metal genre. This record also enabled the band to perform in places they were previously unable to, such as South America and Australia. Despite the acclaim they had achieved with these albums, the group then shifted direction once again, taking much inspiration from synth pop bands like New Order and Depeche Mode. The first album to feature this sound, "One Second" proved to be a massive success in Europe, entering the top ten in the German and Swedish album charts. The synth pop influence seemed to be overwhelming the band somewhat, as many fans felt that the band had almost completely shed their metal influences on the subsequent albums, "Host" and "Believe In Nothing."

Unhappy with the control their label had over them, the group signed a new deal with GUN Records and began bringing back the metallic sounds of the past, while still retaining their new wave influence. This would mark their last album to feature such a mesh though, as they shed the synth pop stylings for their self-titled tenth studio album in 2005, much to the delight of fans and critics alike. Since then, Paradise Lost have continued to utilise the goth metal sound on their subsequent albums, "In Requiem" and most recently, "Faith Divies Us - Death Unites Us." The band are expected to begin work on a new studio album in the new year, along with rumours of a new DVD release. It seems that now, the band are deservedly recognised as one of the true kings in their respective genre, and one that has earned respect by not being afraid to experiment with their music and take risks, with some paying off more than others.
