Paradise Lost – Ghosts (Official Lyric Video)

Today, “Paradise Lost” release “Ghosts”, the second single from their new album “Obsidian”, out on May, 15th, via Nuclear Blast Records. The newly minted anthem is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub and comes with an impressive lyric video.

 

Nick Holmes about ‘Ghosts’: “This song tips a cap to the goth rock music that was ubiquitous when we were teenagers. Even as young Death metal fans, a lot of that old 80’s music is still very much the soundtrack of our early lives. Lyrically it’s about being haunted by the past and a shallow belief in something you hope will destroy the demons.”

To get your hands on one of the exclusive bundles, Crash Records sells with tickets for “Paradise Lost” release show at The Warehouse in Leeds on September 17th, check out the Crash Records online shop: HERE.

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 PL anthems Ghosts is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub. Produced by the band themselves, with the assistance of noted studio guru Jamie ‘Gomez’ Arellano, Obsidian is another compelling showcase for Paradise Lost’s ever-blazing passion for forging ahead.
