Paradise Lost To Re-Release "Host"

British gothic metal pioneers Paradise Lost has announced that their 1999 album, "Host" will be remastered and re-released through Nuclear Blast Records on March 16th. The album will be available as digipack and in three different vinyl colours (black, clear and mint) for the first time ever.

Speaking about the album, vocalist Nick Holmes stated: "With the 'Host' album we wanted to take the 'One Second' concept further and make a very dark album with even more subtlety. It was a bold leap from all our previous albums, a leap too far some would say, but for me, the new remastered version really shows it's still one of the bands strongest albums in terms of song writing, atmosphere and sheer misery."

Interview

A Coke And A Smile With Gus G

Metal and hardcore bands seem to be taking a little more notice of the South East of Spain lately. While Madrid and Barcelona still receives regular visits from all manner of heavy groups, the industrial city of Murcia is finally getting some recognition and receiving visits from big names. Of course, with awesome bands comes the opportunity to conduct some (I hope) great interviews and so I pursued the chance to sit down with Firewind founder and guitarist Gus G. (also known for his tenure as the guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne) to talk about the band's latest album, "Immortals," lineup changes and Greek metal and history, which we did at a small tapas bar after sharing some Eddie Murphy/Richard Pryor jokes (hence the article title.)

Diamond Oz: So, you're on tour at the moment promoting, "Immortals," which was released last January. How would you say the response to "Immortals" has been?"

Gus G.: It's really great! We didn't expect we would expand the tour that long. We had been away for like four years and everything moves so fast so we thought, "OK, we'll do one round of Europe, maybe some festivals" and then we started getting offers to go to Russia and South America, then Rage reached out and offered us the tour so it's been great, we're very happy. Fans love the album, it's one of the best received albums of our career.

Oz: It is a solid album, I bought it a few weeks ago. I heard earlier that the idea of Rage and Firewind touring together had been around for quite a while.

Gus: Yeah, that was an idea that came about months ago. We're on the same management roster, which is run by Lucky, the drummer from Rage and they had this idea that we should go out together, which is great because the music styles blend together so well and we have a similar fan base, though obviously Rage is a much older band than we are. So far the package has worked out great.
