Bloodstock Open Air 2016 @ Catton Hall, Derbyshire

Bloodstock Open Air 2016

@Catton Hall, Derbyshire

11th – 14th August 2016

Review by Demitri Levantis

Photography and Additional Reviews by Graham Hilling

Derbyshire is probably the last place you’d expect to find metal. It’s not one of England’s most famous counties, nor has it built up a reputation for a place of art and culture. But within the south of this quaint midlands county, some of the country’s finest music promoters are at work building the county’s reputation as a haven for metalheads.

Paradise Lost @ KOKO, London October 4th 2015

Paradise Lost

@ KOKO, London

October 4th 2015

Review by Ellen Trap Norvang

Photography by Michelle Murphy

Gothic doom pioneers, Paradise Lost, landed in London on the first leg of the tour with their latest release, The Plague Within.

KOKO is a beautiful setting for tonight’s show as the theatrical setting only adds to the gothic factor. If tonight’s venue Koko deliberately was set to spread out an extreme scent of incense and petrolia, I do not know. It definitely not only felt gothic on this Sunday night, but sure smelled like it as well.

Paradise Lost + Lacuna Coil + Katatonia @ The Roundhouse, Camden

Paradise Lost + Lacuna Coil + Katatonia

@ The Roundhouse, Camden

November 3rd 2013

Review by Ellen Norvang

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost does not need an introduction to fans of gothic metal. It has been 25 years of existence for the Yorkshire boys. It has been 25 years with consistent bands members if you do not count the numerous changes on the drum kit. That is a long time for a band to exist and a long time for a band to maintain their own image, develop their own genre and influence several bands. It deserves a celebration and the setting is the Roundhouse in Camden,  Sunday the 3rd of November 2013. What better season to celebrate and what better city to wrap up a UK tour that has been embracing the band’s quarter of a century journey.

Not only does Paradise Lost have a back catalogue and a fan base big enough to host an evening on their own, but the band have invited the finest support acts to join them on the anniversary tour.

PARADISE LOST announces limited 10″ for new compilation, ‘Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)’

September 26th, 2013

From the harrowing doom of their 1990 debut Lost Paradise, to 1991’s genre-defining Gothic, to 1995’s break-out masterpiece Draconian Times, to 1997’s electronically-tinged One Second, to 2007’s return to a heavier form In Requiem, to last year’s opus Tragic Idol, PARADISE LOST has continued to evolve since their inception in 1988, inspiring countless artists throughout the years. To celebrate their influence on the scene, a special compilation will be released this fall to commemorate the band’s 25th anniversary landmark.

Entitled Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities), this album will be released on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America) and features artwork by Parisian designer Valnoir (, who has worked with artists such as ORPHANED LAND, MORBID ANGEL, WATAIN, and more than 150 others. All tracks found on the compilation are previously released rarities– except the new track “Loneliness Remains,” and newly recorded “Gothic 2013” and “Our Saviour 2013.” These three tracks will also appear on a mint green 10″ (USA exclusive color; limited to 300 copies) that includes a CD booklet and CD insert.

Paradise Lost @ The Scala, London

Sunday 29th April 2012

Review by Joffie Lovett

Photography by Michelle Murphy

It’s a sunny April afternoon in Kings Cross, London but that doesn’t stop the hoards of Gothic Metal fans descending upon The Scala to witness the masters of the genre they created, Paradise Lost. I arrived at the venue fairly early at 6pm although the doors were not due to open until 7:30 but already there were people beginning to queue at the entrance as well as a few audience members who I could see had taken advantage of the VIP ticket option whereby you get a meet and greet with the band earlier in the day and exclusive merchandise, etc.

Finnish Metal Expo 2012

March 31st, 2012
The Finnish Metal Expo has become more an indoor metal festival in the heart of the Finnish nuclear winter. The line-up of the FME 2012 offered a great and wide deal of metal from the extreme to the more AOR based approach. Even though the whole idea of the metal expedition has dried out within these years, instead bands seem to draw more interest. Nearly 4000 metal worshippers have crawled thru the wintery Helsinki to attend the Finnish Metal Expo. Here is the brief article with a lot of great pictures from The Finnish Metal Expo.

Greg Mackintosh – Singer of Vallenfyre and guitarist of Paradise Lost

March 5th, 2012


Interview with Greg Mackintosh: Singer of Vallenfyre and guitarist of Paradise Lost

Interview and pics by Arto Lehtinen


Paradise Lost’s riff-master, Greg Mackintosh, still has the old school death/doom metal spirit left. Besides Paradise Lost, Mackintosh formed another band called Vallenfyre which is pure old school death/doom metal worship. Vallenfyre recently visited Finland by doing the debut gig in front of 300 enthusiastic metallers. The gig truly offered a real flashback to the heyday of the 80’s/90’s death metal. had an utter privilege to talk to Mr Mackintosh before the show.

PARADISE LOST offers new single as a free download Valentine’s gift

February 13th, 2012
Paradise Lost on FacebookAfter taking a trip back in time with the Draconian Times MMXI DVD/live album (the London legacy show of their classic album from 1995) and Gregor Mackintosh’s return to his crusty, doom-death metal roots with VALLENFYRE (along with his mates from MY DYING BRIDE, DOOM, and AT THE GATES), it’s now time for PARADISE LOST’s 13th studio album, Tragic Idol! As a special Valentine’s gift, you can download the band’s new song, “Crucify”, on February 14th here:

The album was recorded at The Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire, England. Vocals were recorded at the Fascination Street Studios in Orebro, Sweden by Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT), who also produced, mixed, and mastered the album. Tragic Idol is scheduled for a worldwide release through Century Media Records on April 23rd, 2012 in Europe and April 24th, 2012 in North America.

In regards to this new album, Gregor Mackintosh (guitar) mentioned in the new Terrorizer interview: “We’ve probably been influenced more by classic metal and classic doom metal on this record than anything else.”

Nick Holmes (vocals) about “Crucify”: “My father always used to say that typical life stresses were crucifying him, I always thought it was such a dramatic way of stating that. He was just uncomfortable with a situation that would soon be remedied. I also refer to an actual person as a literal crucifixion at the end, The words ‘…for eternity you’re my sentence’ is my favorite line on the whole album.”

The Tragic Idol touring cycle starts with a show at the Finnish Metal Expo this weekend, followed by their first Australian tour in 17 years, a UK/European tour starting April, and European festivals throughout the summer. See the dates below to see when PARADISE LOST is coming to a city near you.
