Musically, I don't agree to all those claims that PL now return to their roots. They're much too experienced now to be reduced to standards of those early efforts. I think this album reflects alot of influence from others, from fellow Doom-Metallers My dying Bride (their late 90s / early 00s output) and occational black metal elements, something which is new in their reportoire.
There are also changes to the music itself - in some songs ("Terminal", "Flesh from Bone") one is treated with some of the fastest and heaviest material from Paradise Lost ever, and there are slight touches of early doomsters, such as early Cathedral in "Beneath Broken Earth". However, the most important is the fact, that guys have not tried to just became as heavy and harsh as possible, but still did a good job on melodies.Read more ›
I began my PL journey in 2000 when I stumbled on "Isolate" after looking for King Diamond videos on Road Runner Records.com. From there I began with the current and listened to the past records.. Absolutely loved them all! So building up through stages and years of music development from a band thats been around for over 20 years.. It's hard to stamp any kind of s***ty review on them..especially when the band had flirted with genres from Heavy Metal, Doom to Classical and Electronica. This album fills a lot of the bands classic doom sound as well as a new matured one? either way... A great CD!

Finally Paradise Lost are back to their roots. They wasted the last decade trying to be a Depeche Mode but in my opinion they had failed to be something they are not. Read morePublished 11 months ago by SheriffMamba
