On March 16th, cult metallers Paradise Lost will release a remastered version of their legendary seventh studio album, Host, and a first-ever pressing of the songs on vinyl.
As a first taste, the Brits have now unveiled a lyric video to their single So Much Is Lost (Remastered), which once was the first track to be released off the album. This album saw Paradise Lost moving further away from their previous death metal roots to a melancholic electropop sound.
Watch the video below!
Jaime Gomez Arellano, who remastered the album, states: “Host is a fantastic album with a stellar production. When I had the opportunity to remaster it, I focused on warming it up through analogue tape and giving it more of that analogue ‘vibe’ since a lot of records from that period were a bit thin sounding in comparison to today‘s standards. The remaster resulted in more depth and bass frequencies and generally a warmer and fuller sound. I hope the fans enjoy it!”
PL singer Nick Holmes adds:”It was interesting to revisit this stage of the band’s history. It’s certainly not metal thrashing mad, but I’ve always regarded some of our strongest material was written around this period, and I still regard So Much Is Lost as a really strong song.”
The album will be available as digipack and in three different vinyl colours (black, clear and mint) for the first time ever.
The band’s current album, Medusa, was voted by Sentinel Daily as the best album of 2017.
