Editorial Reviews

2008 digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD + PAL/Region 0 DVD) edition of the Gothic Doom Metal band's 1991 album featuring bonus tracks and a bonus DVD containing a very rare video performance from a 1991 Paradise Lost show. Gothic was THE album responsible for a whole sub genre of Metal: Gothic Doom Metal. Creating a more melancholy and atmospheric form of Doom Metal, with the introduction of the distinctive and unmistakable Paradise Lost lead guitar melodies, the band was quickly propelled to the forefront of pioneering Extreme Metal bands of the early '90s. The album was recorded in late 1990/early 1991 at the renowned Academy Studios in Yorkshire; a studio responsible for classic recordings from bands such as My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth, Bal Sagoth, among many others. Peaceville.

Wow I cant believe this masterpiece has only two reviews. I bought this cd a long time ago because I was a major fan of Cradle of Filth, and Dani said in an interview that this was one of his favorite cds. I didnt take to this cd immediatly, but years later this is just awsome. I find the guitars on this cd just immaculate. Another reviewer complained of the drumming. It isnt the strongpoint of this cd, but it hardly ruins it. The sound has a doom, gothic sound but mixed with metallica. At least thats my opinion.

Gothic 10 Excellent guitar throughout this one. Towards the end you have some nice keyboards. This is primarily a guitar song. This is also one of the few songs on the cd that has female vocals. They are not overbearing like some bands are. They are just right.

Dead Emotion 9 A bit heavier than the last one. Lots of good growls. The guitars are a mix of choppy riffs and spiraling solos.

Shattered 8 It might be a little repetitive at points but dont mistake repetitive for boring. It sounds so good you wont care.

Rapture 9 Not really much I can say to describe this except that it is really good. A bit darker than the first three.

Eternal 10 This is the classic paradice lost song to me. Too good for words. Definantly my favorite.

Falling Forever 7.5-8 I wouldnt really say that any songs on here are weak, but if I had to pick a weak song this would probably be one of them. Still hardly a bad song.

Angel Tears 6 I really dont know why they put this on the cd. Its just a couple minutes of guitar. The guitar is good but they should have just made it into a song.

Silent 7.5 This one has really good guitars, but it kind of just goes on too long.

Paradise Lost are ultimate at creating a dark mood. They are probably the first doom metal band (and the best one by the way) to use symphonic female vocals in their music. They also use violins in the tracks Gothic and Eternal. This is a fantastic work of musical art. The harmonies are really great and really help the dark, edgy, guitar. This is their finest realease. I recommend anyone who enjoys gothic/doom metal and likes music to be moody and feeling inspiring, pick this up. Choice tracks are Gothic, Shattered, Rapture, Eternal(best song on here), and the instrumental Angel Tears. Pick this up, you will not be disappointed.

It is too bad that Paradise Lost didn't stick with this style for more releases. Then again it would have been hard to top this one. It is just a masterful blend of death, doom and gothic metal. The songs ooze with emotion and everything they did to experiment with the metal sound WORKED. Love it.

I remember when this came out. Groundbreaking. Some other fine bands have given some good efforts in this style (My Dying Bride, Anathema), but this is the best.

If you think of their latest releases, you may not believe that this is the same Band that made "One Second", "Host" or even "Icon". Back then, Paradise Lost didn't play New-Age-Wave music but marked the territory of any Gothic-Metal band of today, Theatre of Tragedy, Tristania and the like. Being the first Death/Doom Album with female vocals, you can easily call this one a milestone of Metal. It has nothing to do with the Style since Icon, but it stands the test of time with "Gothic" and "Eternal" being outstanding killers!
