PARADISE LOST Begins Recording New Album

British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST have entered the studio to begin recording their new CD for an early 2012 release via Century Media Records. The band states, "Half of the drums for the new album are done!! Rocking, shocking and downright obscene blasts!! Fookin fast!!"

PARADISE LOST's last full-length effort, "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us", came out in October 2009. The CD landed at position No. 148 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The follow-up to 2007's "In Requiem" was recorded at Fascination Street Studios in rebro, Sweden with producer Jens Bogren. The album's artwork, which is based upon a "Danse Macabre" woodcut by Hans Holbein the Younger (first published in 1538), was created by Stefan Wibbeke at Medialogistics (LACUNA COIL, POISONBLACK).

PARADISE LOST recently released the "Draconian Times MMXI" DVD via Century Media.

Sony Music reissued PARADISE LOST's seminal 1995 album "Draconian Times" through the "Legacy" series; featuring the entire digitally remastered album, including a 5.1 Dolby Surround mix in a brand-new collector's edition digipak box set, so fans could hear the album like never before. Along with this release, the band performed "Draconian Times" live at a series of seven exclusive gigs this past spring in Utrecht, Bochum, London, Paris, Athens, and Thessaloniki.
