UK metal icons Paradise Lost have inked a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records.
Forming in 1988 and spanning a huge palette of styles through their lengthy career, the band have consistently proven to reinvent and experiment whilst remaining one of the worlds leading metallic forces. You can find a statement from frontman Nick Holmes below:
Holmes; ‘Paradise Lost’s career has run alongside Nuclear Blast Records since the label began in the late 80’s. And as huge fans of original death metal, we still have the majority of the label’s first releases from those very early days. It’s pretty incredible to see how the label has become a real force in metal music over the years, both in Europe and America and now, nearly 30 years later, in a new chapter for the band, it’s exciting for Paradise Lost to be a part of Nuclear Blast!’
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger added; ‘As a fan from day one I’ve been following Paradise Lost ever since their death metal era, but have also enjoyed watching them grow into something even bigger and so unique. They defined and later on re-defined the gothic genre and always delivered the most dark and memorable songs. It’s a great pleasure to finally welcome the band to the ever-growing Nuclear Blast family! Needless to say that we’re very much looking forward to this partnership!’
The band will play Bloodstock Festival this August.
