PARADISE LOST's 'Medusa' named Decibel Magazine's "Metal Album of the Year"!
PARADISE LOST has been named Decibel Magazine's coveted "Metal Album of the Year" for 2017 with their latest album Medusa!
Commented guitarist Gregor Mackintosh:
"We are immensely honored to have had our latest album Medusa named as Decibel Magazine's album of the year 2017. There were a lot of outstanding releases this year, especially in the doom genre. That plus PARADISE LOST turning 30 next year make this especially humbling."
Decibel recently went on to eloquently explain the reason for the choice:
"In an era of accelerating change, it is some comfort to have PARADISE LOST release a record like Medusa to sit atop the year’s critical pile. As trailblazing veterans of doom-death, PARADISE LOST have spent nigh on 30 years articulating existential bleakness in song and verse, so it’s not like they composed it with your comfort in mind. But in this topsy-turvy world a little constancy goes a long way. Medusa, in all its dark and epic majesty, feels like the affirmation of some physical law."
