Goth Metallers Paradise Lost are wrapping up the recording process for their upcoming new album, which was recorded at Orgone Studios.
The band worked alongside producer Jaime Gomez Arellano, forging a follow-up to their highly acclaimed release, “The Plague Within.”
Says Lead guitarist and songwriter Greg Mackintosh of the new album: "The new album will be slower, sludgier and more doom-filled than ever before," he said. "Eight riff-laden monster tracks of sheer Northern misery."
In a 2015 interview with Isolation Grind, vocalist Nick Holmes stated about "The Plague Within"'s heavier sound compared to that on some of PARADISE LOST's earlier albums: "We just tried to capture the spirit of the old days without forgetting everything else that has happened over the last 20 years. I don't think the album is back to our roots as such, as we couldn't have written an album like this 25 years ago."
Nick also talked about the progression of PARADISE LOST's sound, calling it "just evolution. Certain albums have taken us in significant directions, I guess 'Icon' was probably the first album to do that, and we continued that style until 'One Second'. It's too early to see if ['The Plague Within'] will be a new progression."
