MMW: Paradise Lost

Artist: Paradise Lost

Description: They formed in Halifax, England in 1988. Early on they were a pioneer along with the other bands My Dying Bride and Anathema in England playing a blend of Doom and Death metal. Later on in the 90’s and 00’s they experimented with Gothic and Electronic sounds. At one point they were considered as popular, and to be a successor in metal to Metallica in Europe. They never made in as big in the US, probably due to a lack of touring the US. Recently they have moved back towards their earlier Death/Doom sound.
