PARADISE LOST's Greg Mackintosh Presents: Part 2 Of Decibrity Playlist!
Gothic/doom Metallers PARADISE LOST have just released their 13th studio album, 'Tragic Idol', in North America! To purchase the album, head over to CM Distro for various CD/vinyl formats, plus iTunes or Amazon for a digital copy (links below). For fans that would like to preview Tragic Idol in its entirety, please visit Decibel Magazine.com for the exclusive album stream.
Lead guitarist Gregor Mackintosh has now shared part 2 of his retrospective playlist composed of tracks from albums that relate to PARADISE LOST's discography. To give fans a better understanding of where the band was at (musically) during each of the albums' eras, Greg chose one non-PL album that correlates to each PARADISE LOST release and explained its role in the band's career. Part 2 of Greg's Decibrity playlist can now be read and heard at the following link:
As torchbearers of the gothic/doom Metal scene, PARADISE LOST has seen much success overseas in Europe, but they have yet to break into the mainstream in the States, despite having influenced countless bands across metal's many sub-genres. To celebrate their influential role in the scene and to welcome the release of Tragic Idol, Decibel Magazine will be featuring PARADISE LOST, "Metal's most underrated band", as the cover story for their June issue (out in May).
