Paradise Misplaced will launch their new album, Obsidian, on Could 15 through Nuclear Blast. Pre-order right here. The band talk about their first gig on this new trailer:
Obsidian… darkish, reflective and black: it’s a reasonably first rate description of the music that Paradise Misplaced have been making over the past 32 years, regardless that this most resilient of British metallic bands have stoically refused to be pinned down to 1 simply outlined components. Powered by a lust for creativity and a stout devotion to haunting heaviness, Paradise Misplaced have defied the percentages by coming again stronger than ever over the previous decade.
Nick Holmes feedback concerning the new album: “Some of the eclectic albums we’ve carried out in a while, we’ve depressing songs, unhappy songs, sluggish songs and sooner songs. Did I point out depressing?”
The sixteenth Paradise Misplaced studio album, Obsidian, eschews its fast predecessors’ grotesque, myopic strategy in favour of a richer and extra dynamic deluge of black shades. From the misleading magnificence and twin atmospheres of opener “Darker Ideas” by to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn nearer “Ravenghast”, Obsidian reveals a band in masterful management of a broad array of important concepts. Most noticeably, the document boasts a number of songs that draw closely from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of ‘80s gothic rock: particularly, newly-minted Paradise Misplaced anthems‚ “Ghosts” is a assured dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub.
