Paradise Lost

The British doom metal band Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, England in 1988; originally comprising vocalist Nick Holmes, lead guitarist Gregor Mackintosh, rhythm guitarist Aaron Aedy, bassist Steve Edmonson, and drummer Matthew Archer, the group recorded a pair of demo tapes, Drown in Darkness and Frozen Illusion, before signing with Peaceville Records to issue their debut album Lost Paradise in early 1990. The follow-up, 1991's Gothic, was the band's breakthrough, its dark production and orchestral elements setting them apart from the competition; a major European tour also expanded Paradise Lost's fanbase dramatically. Signing with the Music for Nations label, they returned in 1992 with Shades of God, considered by many to be their high-water mark; an EP, As I Die, appeared later that same year, complete with cover art by the incomparable Dave McKean. After 1993's Icon, Archer left Paradise Lost, and was replaced by drummer Lee Morris; Draconian Times followed in 1995, with One Second released two years later. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Very distinctive sound
Gothic and los paradise the best album
Today paradise lost is like another band more the 3 first album is the best is only for memory of truth fans of metal
Best band ever
Grey by paradise lost. Good
the later music from these guys is f**king incredible. earlier stuff...not so much
Easily the best gothic metal band around :D
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
...nope. Good, but Shades Of God is still my favorite.
Listening to Shades of God awhile back, I wondered if they were still around, and behold! And, their latest, Tragic Idol, is absolutely awesome! Maybe their best stuff yet.
I believe Paradise Lost is the best doom metal band out there. .
interesting ... this came on in my Depeche Mode /Duran Duran station.
I didn't believe they were a doom-metal band. i guess that's what happens when you lose your way in the music industry
a great band
tristanhi88
they r boring compared to their first two albums theve abandoned their heavy roots

check our Lost Paradise, Gothic, Shades of God, or Icon and you'll definitely see a huge contrast to Depeche Mode. These guys used to be classic heavy doom metal, but changed their style drastically after Icon.
These guys sound more like Depeche Mode, and other new wave bands, how are they doom metal? Or metal at all? They seem good but definitely not doom metal, at least not what I've heard of them.

Brit metal! Haha, awesome. I know it's wrong, but when I think of British metal, I just get the mental image of an old timey English gentleman dusting off his suit, putting down his cup of tea, before bellowing like a demon and giving the other members of his residence heart attacks.
As far as I am aware the word Goth is used in vernacular American English as a virtual synonym both for what may be called “Dark wave music” and the associated subculture. Therefore, the adjective Gothic as applied to music is meant to connote the presence of Dark wave influences on a genre, band, or composition. Looked at from this perspective much of Paradise Lost’s material (and that of similar bands) can be identified as Gothic, particularly when considering such albums of theirs as Host.
Shades of God is definately thier best. Weak bio for a great band.
Should I get Icon or Draconian Times?
The album "gothic" has more to do with the word GOTHIC than the music style (which in my opinion is kind of gay , no offense ) if you people do a search of what really means gothic then you might understand what is gothic.

Still Rockin'!
they are also well known in my grandmothers ex-bathroom.
my favorite depeche mode cd is host by paradise lost-isn't it your too ?-oh all you girls flabbergast me with your rudeness...
certainly a monumental band-to me not very different from the smiths,pet shop boys,de mode in terms of feeling and nothing is m ore important than that. you can my dying bride and katatonia to that list too,oh yea,and the cure...
Metal is not goth (and neither is Gothic Metal)... Sorry people...

In my opinion, it's difficult to label this band's musical style because they're too awesome to be labeled.
Awesome band.
Definitely not underground. The only people who are not aware of their existence are ignorant to the goth genre.

Icon is a great album, they are not well known in US
Another day, another band I'd never heard of before that it turns out I like - huzzah for Pandora!
I like these guys. I love how they are from Britain, always make me think of My Dying Bride.
Pandora can post up the other albums if we shoot them emails.
Hello?? ... where are the other remaining albuns? especially Shades of god
magdelenadam o u r
this isnt all there albums
I really like Paradise Lost. Been listening to them for a while.
These guys fit great on my Goth station!
big fan of the music, but i try not to pay too close attention to the lyrics. what they are singing in one one line has no real relevance to what is sung 3 lines later, or sometimes even the next lime. it just rhymes and sounds cool, but as a therion fan, who likes a continuous story and read lyrics, it can be bothersome if im not careful, but extremely talented musicians.
I'm starting to wonder why radio is still around? We have Paradise Lost.
This song is 10 years ahead of its time
/ooo um linkin park, all these other wannabes out nw try to sond this good
Haven't seen Willow in awhile. Hopefully he got booted off Pandora.

I agree with Firmus Arma-it is more gloom than doom.
lol willow here too......... . . . . . . . . .
I would classify this as gloom not doom lol
andyczech
angel anarchy is stoned or high on crack.
they don't sound very doomy.. but I think they are very good.. my vision of doom is different!
cerdom
There's such a mellow feeling to this, I like it.
God, I love this band.

One Second is one of my favorite albums of all time.
osenda62
This angel of anarchy guy sure has a lot of nothing to say.
