British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST celebrated their 25th anniversary with a very special show at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards, which was held last night (Monday, June 17) at London's esteemed Indigo2 venue (headlined by the other British legends MOTÖRHEAD).
PARADISE LOST invited their friends Cristina Scabbia (LACUNA COIL) — who sang "Say Just Words" in a duet with PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes — and Gus G. (FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE) who joined PARADISE LOST to pay tribute to the godfathers of metal, BLACK SABBATH, for an "Into The Void" cover version.
Video footage of the "Say Just Words" performance featuring Cristina Scabbia can be seen below.
In a statement released last week, Holmes stated about the Metal Hammer Golden Gods show: "[I am] really looking forward to singing with Cristina. I think it will be a lot of fun. She has an amazing voice, and I'm looking forward to being completely overshadowed!"
Adds PARADISE LOST guitarist Greg Mackintosh: "It is the dream job of any guitarist to play for Ozzy, and Gus achieved that. I watched him at Graspop festival and he slayed the crowd. It will be awesome playing my favourite SABBATH song with Gus."
PARADISE LOST wil embark on a four-date U.K. tour in October/November to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Support on the trek will come from LACUNA COIL.
