Paradise Lost (UK)

Paradise Lost

The British legend Paradise Lost returns to the crime scene! This living and breathing giant of gothic and death metal was last seen at Ilosaarirock Festival in the last millennium, so it's a rare sight. But good things come to those who wait!

In the summer of 2015 Paradise Lost released a critically acclaimed album The Plague Within where the band returned to its dark and heavy roots. The band rose to fame in the 1990s with albums such as Icon and Draconian Times, setting the foundation for modern and heavy gothic metal. Austere guitar melodies, heavy riffs and Nick Holmes's impressive vocals have inspired numerous metal bands around the world. Here's a treat for all the fans of high quality metal.
