Paradise Lost Announce Documentary Premiere

Diran Noubar's powerful new documentary "Over The Madness" about U.K. band PARADISE LOST provides unique insights on a rock band and the emergence of the "gothic metal" movement. The documentary referred by SYSTEM OF A DOWN's Serj Tankian as "THE film showing the inception and progression of PARADISE LOST" has already been nominated for some key film festivals this year, including Swansea Bay Film Festival (U.K.), Everglades Film Festival (South Africa) and the Wave Gotik Festival (Germany). The film's world premiere is set for the Cannes Film Festival's Market on Monday, May 21 (Palais D, 11:30 a.m.).

This year, PARADISE LOST are celebrating their 20th anniversary and the release of their 11th album. Along with country mates ANATHEMA and MY DYING BRIDE, the band — named after John Milton's epic 1667 poem — is credited for pioneering gothic metal. Throughout years of creative challenging and musical experimentation, PARADISE LOST have persisted in delivering a densely evocative and richly textured brand of metal. Creating a cult-following in many countries around the world, they have released commercially successful musical masterpieces, selling over two million records. Today, their influence still clearly transpires in the sound of most gothic and heavy metal bands. More...

Paradise Lost Post New Tracks Online

PARADISE LOST, the godfathers of gothic metal, have posted a medley of two new tracks, “The Enemy” and “Beneath Black Skies,” to their official MySpace page. The tracks are taken from the group’s phenomenal forthcoming release, In Requiem, which is set for a June 5th U.S. release.

The album, produced by Rhys Fulber (Fear Factory, Front Line Assembly) and mixed by Mike Fraser (Slipknot), marks a return to their heavy trademark sound. Their melancholic atmosphere is as oppressive as ever, but on this go round, the gloom is fused with an equal amount of dense, punishing riffs. Never ones to rest on their laurels, the group brings something new to the table with each successive album, and In Requiem is no exception.

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 bands like HIM and The Rasmus, they remain as relevant as their modern followers through subtle reinvention and a continued dedication to quality songcraft.
