Gothic Doom Metal band Paradise Lost are set to play their first headline Australian shows in six years.

Rare is it for a band to have had such a long lasting effect on the musical landscape they exist within. Since their formation in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Paradise Lost have thrived in perpetual darkness: a place where rays of light seldom threaten to break the black clouds, where nightmares last an eternity.

While the course of their sonic evolution has spawned countless others sworn to the dark, all pale in comparison to the original Gothic metal pioneers. Whilst their fifth album ‘Draconian Times’ provided the band’s international breakthrough, it would be fair to say without Paradise Lost, many of today’s doom-gloom bands would never have existed – 2nd album ‘Gothic’ still being considered ground zero for gothic metal.

Now celebrating their 25th year since the release of their debut album, Paradise Lost finally return to Australia for 5 shows only including their first shows in Adelaide and Perth ever!

The band will be performing songs from their groundbreaking catalogue and highlighting material from their astounding new album ‘The Plague Within’ on which Paradise Lost are once again refining the chemical equation to their sonic alchemy with the kind of creative invincibility few can afford. Described as a monochrome miasma of morbidly uplifting anthems and heart-aching melancholia, Paradise Lost deliver a pain born of the human condition itself as our fragile minds struggle to cope in a world overrun by demons.

It’s the love for what they do that has elevated Paradise Lost to the higher echelons of metal majesty. With a longstanding stable line-up that increasingly seems a rarity in today’s music scene, theirs is a creativity born of collective dominance: a mutual and shared dedication to creating something that will stand the test of time. And, of course, we’ve grown to expect nothing less from the Great British trailblazers.

If you’re searching for cheap thrills, look elsewhere. Paradise Lost is a band that sacrifice themselves through music, bleeding and suffering for their art in a way that puts many of today’s so-called artists to shame.
