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.
