Ξεκινάμε όμορφα, επιτέλους ένα καλό νέο!
The sixteenth PARADISE LOST studio album, “Obsidian” eschews its immediate predecessors’ gruesome, myopic approach in favour of a richer and more dynamic deluge of black shades. From the deceptive elegance and dual atmospheres of opener ‘Darker Thoughts’ through to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn closer ‘Ravenghast’; “Obsidian” reveals a band in masterful control of a broad array of vital ideas. Most noticeably, the record boasts several songs that draw heavily from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of ‘80s gothic rock: in particular, newly-minted PARADISE LOST anthem ‘Ghosts’ is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub.
“It’s one of the most eclectic albums we have done in some time, we have miserable songs, sad songs ,slow songs and faster songs. Did I mention miserable?” - Nick Holmes.
