Fourteen albums into Paradise Lost‘s 20+ year career, namedropping is pointless. The only band they can and should be held up against for comparison and consideration is Paradise Lost. With a career dating back to 1988, and their official recording debut in 1990 (Lost Paradise), the band has been riding and roller-coaster of highs and lows that began in earnest with their fourth album, Icon, in 1993. It presented Paradise Lost as a band that had more to offer beyond their established doom-death metal sound, driving the point home in 1995 with Draconian Times, an album that is considered to be a goth metal benchmark to this very day. It’s fair to say the band’s new outing, “The Plague Within”, is the album fans of the past, the present and future era have been waiting on the edge of their seats for.
Gearing up for the release of the album, Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with frontman Nick Holmes. He discusses All Things Paradise Lost, new album “The Plague Withiin”, songwriting, musical direction, lyrics, Peaceville trio (Anathema, My Dying Bride & Paradise Lost) Era, upcoming tours and much more.
