British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST are filming a video this weekend for an as-yet-undisclosed song off their upcoming album, “Tragic Idol”.
The first photo from the video shoot can be seen below.
“Tragic Idol” was recorded in part at The Chapel studios in Lincolnshire, England for an April 24 release via Century Media Records.
Commented Gregor Mackintosh: “The [new CD was] again produced by Jens Bogren and is influenced by classic doom metal and classic metal. I would say it is more melodic than the last record whilst retaining the heaviness. There are lots of guitar solos and melodies. The album will contain such track titles as ‘Honesty in Death’, ‘Theories from Another World’, ‘In this We Dwell’ and the title track, ‘Tragic Idol’.”
PARADISE LOST‘s last full-length effort, “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us”, came out in October 2009.
The band recently released the “Draconian Times MMXI” DVD via Century Media.
Sony Music reissued PARADISE LOST‘s seminal 1995 album “Draconian Times” through the “Legacy” series; featuring the entire digitally remastered album, including a 5.1 Dolby Surround mix in a brand-new collector’s edition digipak box set, so fans could hear the album like never before. Along with this release, the band performed “Draconian Times” live at a series of seven exclusive gigs this past spring in Utrecht, Bochum, London, Paris, Athens, and Thessaloniki.
“Draconian Times MMXI” features the London show at The Forum on April 1, 2011, a documentary from the whole tour filmed by the band’s bass player Steve Edmondson, interviews about the history of “Draconian Times” with producer Simon Efemey, Nick Holmes (vocals), Greg Mackintosh (guitar), Aaron Aedy (guitar), Steve Edmondson (bass) and Andy Farrow (manager since 1990) and the two promo videos from PARADISE LOST‘s latest album, “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us”.
