PARADISE LOST - Inked A Worldwide Deal With Nuclear Blast Records

British iconic metal band Paradise Lost have signed a worldwide deal with German-based metal powerhouse Nuclear Blast! Formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 and still boasting 4 of its 5 original members, the band are widely-credited with co-founding the gothic metal genre with their sophomore album, Gothic (1991). Through the years, Paradise Lost have changed their style effectively and reinvented themselves again and again. They elbowed their way from their original melodic doom death metal on their debut, Lost Paradise (1990) to the classics Icon (1993) and Draconian Times (1995), and more experimental One Second (1997). And recently they went back to the roots with their current release, The Plague Within (2015).
Vocalist Nick Holmes commented: "Paradise Lost's career has run alongside Nuclear Blast Records since the label began in the late 80's. And as huge fans of original death metal, we still have the majority of the label's first releases from those very early days. It's pretty incredible to see how the label has become a real force in metal music over the years, both in Europe and America and now, nearly 30 years later, in a new chapter for the band, it's exciting for Paradise Lost to be a part of Nuclear Blast in 2017!"
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger adds: "As a fan from day one I've been following Paradise Lost ever since their death metal era but also enjoyed watching them grow into something even bigger and so unique. They defined and later on re-defined the gothic genre and always delivered the most dark and memorable songs. It's with great pleasure to finally welcome the band to the ever-growing Nuclear Blast family! Needless to say that we're very much looking forward to this cooperation!"
Paradise Lost also released today for the first time digitally their albums Host and Believe In Nothing, originally released by EMI in 1999 and 2001. With those two albums the band moved towards a more electronic direction with Nick Holmes' vocals becoming increasingly melodic rather than the intense doom laden growls the band were known for. Nick Holmes comments: "Many people have asked over the years, but down to contractual issues we have never been able to make them available, so it's great to announce that our albums Host and Believe In Nothing are finally available to stream on Spotify and Digital download.
Last month Paradise Lost also announced the reissue of their influential third album, Shades Of God, on limited edition picture disc LP to be released through Music For Nations on 22nd July. Link
