Interview

Paradise Lost Guitarist Aaron Aedy On "Medusa" And More

There are many sub-genres of heavy metal music these days. Often they can be traced back or attributed to only a handful of bands. In the nineties, the word saw the rise of groove metal, with many fans pointing to Pantera and Exhorder as the originators, as well as what we now call, black metal, with the Norwegian scene including Immortal, Emperor and Mayhem credited with spawning the style. It also saw the rise of gothic metal, which while built up from a variety of groups, is often attributed to British band, Paradise Lost.

Over the course of thirty years, Paradise Lost has gone from death/doom metal to the Gothic style they pioneered, to electronic music and everything in between. Last week, the band supported another of metal's more Gothic figures, Danzig in Brixton, London and I had the opportunity to sit down with guitarist Aaron Aedy to discuss the latest album, "Medusa," the band's thirtieth anniversary, the re-issues of the controversial albums, "Host" and "Believe In Nothing" and much more. You can watch the interview in full below.
