PARADISE LOST To Be Joined By GUS G, CRISTINA SCABBIA At 'Metal Hammer Golden Gods'

British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST will celebrate their 25th anniversary with a very special show at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards that will be held on 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 will sing "Say Just Words" in a duet with PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes — and Gus G. (FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE) who will join PARADISE LOST to pay tribute to the godfathers of metal, BLACK SABBATH, for an "Into The Void" cover version.

Says Holmes: "[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."

States Gus G.: "PARADISE LOST are one of the most kick-ass bands to ever come out of the U.K. and pioneers in their own genre. Looking forward to jamming with them on stage and what better place to do so, at the coolest award show that heavy metal could ever have — the Golden Gods awards!"

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.
