Paradise Lost Reveals New Album Title

British gothic metal legends Paradise Lost has announced that they will name their new studio album, "Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us." It will be released in September through Century Media Records.

Vocalist Nick Holmes states: "The thoughts behind the title Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us are very much self explanatory, there is so much division in the world caused by obstructing religious belief. We are all made of the same flesh and bone, what makes one religions better than the other, and would any true god allow his creation to destroy itself? The vast number of different so called faiths around the globe, just helps to strengthen my complete denial of any god, and force the belief that religion is nothing more than a man made cash induced fabrication to exploit a human beings natural fear of death."

And lol at the concept of doom-thrash. That'd be some sort of paradox.

? - There's heaps of thrash/doom bands. Trouble, Solitude Aeturnus etc. - Now technical doom metal like Confessor - there's a paradox!

I guess I've never really thought of those bands that way - they may have some more uptempo riffs and solos, but I have a hard time tagging thrash onto their description. Do you have some song examples to help illustrate?

Well I guess you are technically right - slow thrash is a paradox. But Doom bands who have thrashy bits, I'd definitely slot a few bands in that category. Even a lot of Celtic Frost ("Dawn Of Mediggo", "Necromantical Screams") I'd describe as a doom/thrash mix (disregarding their avantguarde side). But the core example is pretty much all of Trouble's "Psalm 9". They've got thrashy tracks like "Bastards Will Pay", doom tracks like "Victim Of The Insane", and mixes like "The Tempter". Either way, sh** that album rules.

Oh, ok. I think I get you now. Psalm 9 for sure, but I guess I don't think they take it to the level of thrash. Which to me anything short of thrash isn't thrash - be it a riff, a song or a band. I've always considered Trouble as doom/heavy and in the same vein as say, Sabbath....which I don't at all consider thrash.

I've heard thrash used to describe anything with a palm-mute and a power chord, or anything that you can headbang to, which is not so. Heavy metal also often gets overlooked for its heavier aspects, I think. Both have similarities of course (same genre) but are not interchangable. Not sure if my point is clear?

Fvck, why am I telling you this? You're the last person I need to ramble on about genre divides to.

Celtic Frost is a paradox on they're own lol, they're kind of the "catch-all" metal band (minus power) so no fair citing them :P

When I first envisioned a doom-thrash experiment I grabbed the extremes of both and mashed 'em together. Imagine sunn O))) for the verse and angel of death for the chorus and solo for 20 minutes. Can you say whiplash? lol I though that combo would be pretty hilarious.

Good sh** though indeed.

now playing: holy terror - blood of the saints

Haha, yes I think I agree with you... and have a new idea for a band :P And yeah, it's weird how big CF is seeing how decidedly haphazard some of their music was put together. Good NP too, the Holy Terror song "Christian Resistance" has always been a thrash classic to me.
