Paradise lost announce new album

Paradise Lost have announced that their new album Medusa will be released on the 1st September.

 

 

Guitarist Greg Mackintosh contemplates about the artwork:

“Whilst we were writing »Medusa« and realising what the new songs were becoming, we had to find an artist to reflect this direction. After searching around for a while, I found Branca Studios. They have a keen eye for design and their modern take on retro artwork really fit the bill. What they have come up with is a blending of colourful yet retro styling, whilst maintaining the classic PARADISE LOST feel.”

About the choice to make her the figurehead of this new album singer Nick Holmes adds:

“I was intrigued about a greater meaning and thinking more along the lines of what Medusa represents metaphorically. Medusa as a title works in many ways. From a Nihilist perspective, when I read the description of ‘Medusa’ on the wikipedia page: ‘Attempts to avoid looking into Medusa’s eyes represents avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless’  The title was pretty much in the bag!”

I’m a photographer from Leeds (queue Yorkshire chant). I like Salad Cream on Bacon sandwiches and Sunday dinners and now you all hate me. I can be found in my local dive bar most days catching a local band or just sinking a few pints of cider.
