Paradise Lost

ONLINE BOOKING OPENS AT 9AM FRIDAY 13TH OCTOBER https://www.colchesterartscentre.com/events/gigs/paradise-lost-/

Founded in 1988 in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Paradise Lost are not only known as one of the most distinctive acts in metal – their music defined the gothic subgenre and raised doom metal

to a new level – they are also considered pioneers of an entire musical generation.

Never ones to hesitate to explore undiscovered paths, they have encompassed many genres during their career – from their death metal beginnings to the more mainstream electronic dark-pop album Host, electronic influences on Symbol Of Life alongside majestic gothic moments. Vocalist Nick Holmes, guitarists Greg Mackintosh and Aaron Aedy, along with bassist Steve Edmondson have never ceased to follow their own vision. The quartet has been an inseparable unit since its inception with only the drummer’s position changing hands several times. With their new drum prodigy, the 22 year old Finn Waltteri Väyrynen, behind the kit the legends are now returning to their early beginnings. The band have already brought back the sound of their roots with their critically acclaimed last album The Plague Within, and now it has become clearer than ever that they’re continuing the theme.

Medusa will be PARADISE LOST’s heaviest full-length release of the past 15 years, melding crushing doom metal with Nick’s harsh death growls and raw organic sounds, heralding a new era of pure Northern misery.

All Tickets £18.
Doors open 7.30pm.
