Paradise Lost have revealed details of their forthcoming new album.
The Plague Within will be the West Yorkshire band’s 14th LP and was recorded with Jaimie Gomez Arellano, who has worked with the likes of Ghost BC, Ulver, Cathedral and Angel Witch.
Says Nick Holmes of the new material: “We wanted to approach the new album differently this time by embracing the band’s very early days. We have written a very dark, yet melodic album, but this time many songs definitely have a death metal edge, which is something we haven’t done for a long long time in Paradise Lost.”
Keyboard player Adrian Erlandsson suggested last year that the new album may return to the band’s growling vocal delivery heard on their earliest releases.
Meanwhile Paradise Lost have confirmed that they are to play at Blastfest, Norway on February 20th and will perform sets at the Castle Party and Summer Breeze festivals in Poland and Germany later in the year.
