Paradise Lost‘s fifteenth studio album “Medusa“, named after the Greek Gorgone whose sight turned people into stone, will be released on September 1st and will see the West Yorkshire legends return to their doom roots.
The British cult metallers premiere a brand new track entitled ‘The Longest Winter‘ off their freshly forged monster. Check it out below the text.
Nick Holmes explained the background of the song: “I read a story about how wildlife was once beginning to flourish in the 30 mile exclusion zone after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 – particularly the wolf population.
“It was nice to think that that no matter how much mankind tried to fuck the planet up directly or indirectly, life carries on in some shape or form. But humans are humans and I recently heard that there is already now ‘timed’ hunting trips organised into the exclusion zone…”
»Medusa« will consist of the following eight songs:
Fearless Sky (8:30)
Gods Of Ancient (5:50)
From The Gallows (3:42)
The Longest Winter (4:31)
No Passage For The Dead (4:16)
Blood & Chaos (3:51)
Until The Grave (5:41)
On September 1st, for one night only, PARADISE LOST will perform their new album in its entirety at the LKA Longhorn in Stuttgart, Germany – more surprises about this exclusive show will be revealed soon, but since the tickets are strictly limited, make sure you get yours now via NB shop.
