21 Days ‘Till Doomsday #12 – Honesty in Death (Paradise Lost)

I don’t think a Doomsday list would be complete without notable Doom-metal bands.  Paradise Lost certainly fits the bill.  Their new album, Tragic Idol, showed a return to their heavier gothic roots.   With doomsday just 12 days away, will you have a moment of honesty or will you take your secrets with you?  If you have been a fan of the band for many years, you have seen a swing in musical style with the most recent albums mirroring their early days.  Whether you like this song or not, it is fitting for end times.  Also, whether you like this song or not, you should try numerous other Paradise Lost songs before you pass judgement on the band.  There is so much to hear…

…In amidst the anguish
My only prayers are to myself
Resistance crashes
As clemency compels…

  1. You’re right what your saying about Paradise Lost songs. I have Gothic, Icon and Tragic idol and heard the Best of, which I think was posted here. All records are different from each other. I love Gothic and think of Tragic idol as a really good record, but never really get Icon or the few other songs I know. But I remember all songs as worth spending time to check out. I only would guess that Nick Holmes voice plays an important role for the effect of their music.
