PARADISE LOST have released ‘Ghosts’, the second single from their new album “Obsidian”, out on May, 15th, via Nuclear Blast Records. The newly minted anthem is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub and comes with an impressive lyric video.
Check it out here:
Nick Holmes about ‘Ghosts’: “This song tips a cap to the goth rock music that was ubiquitous when we were teenagers. Even as young Death metal fans, a lot of that old 80’s music is still very much the soundtrack of our early lives. Lyrically it’s about being haunted by the past and a shallow belief in something you hope will destroy the demons.”
You can order “Obsidian” now in various formats here:

The sixteenth PARADISE LOST studio album, „Obsidian“ eschews its immediate predecessors’ gruesome, myopic approach in favour of a richer and more dynamic deluge of black shades. From the deceptive elegance and dual atmospheres of opener ‚Darker Thoughts‘ through to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn closer ‚Ravenghast‘, „Obsidian“ reveals a band in masterful control of a broad array of vital ideas. Most noticeably, the record boasts several songs that draw heavily from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of ‘80s gothic rock.
