On July 16th, British metal legends PARADISE LOST will bring an icy breeze of gothic doom over this summer by releasing the captivating testimony of last year’s streaming event “At The Mill”. Captured at The Mill Nightclub near the band’s hometown in Yorkshire, England, the recording of the BluRay was directed by Ash Pears, who previously worked with the band on their music videos for ‘Medusa’ and ‘Obsidian’. Mixed by Les Smith and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano, the show will be available in various formats including CD, Blu-Ray and different vinyl colours. Today, the band unveils another appetizer for the release with a live performance of their evergreen ‘One Second‘ that you can watch below.
While we’re all eager to get back to concerts and festivals, singer Nick Holmes looks back on the previous year and comments:
“I wish the lockdown had just been for One Second, unfortunately it’s been over a year.”
Several of the vinyl formats are already sold out, so be quick and secure a copy of the BluRay, CD or remaining vinyl here, or pre-save the album digitally:

Formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire, in 1988, PARADISE LOST were unlikely candidates for metal glory when they slithered from the shadows and infiltrated the UK underground. But not content with spawning an entire subgenre with early death/doom masterpiece „Gothic”nor with conquering the metal mainstream with the balls-out power of 1995’s „Draconian Times”, they have subsequently traversed multiple genre boundaries with skill and grace, evolving through the pitch-black alt-rock mastery of ’90s classics „One Second” and „Host” to the muscular but ornate grandeur of 2009’s „Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us” and „Tragic Idol” (2012), with the nonchalant finesse of grand masters. The band’s last two albums – „The Plague Within” (2015) and „Medusa” (2017) – saw a much celebrated return to brutal, old school thinking, via two crushing monoliths to slow-motion death and spiritual defeat. Consistently hailed as one of metal’s most charismatic live bands, PARADISE LOST arrive in this new decade as veterans, legends and revered figureheads for several generations of gloomy metalheads. In keeping with their unerring refusal to deliver the expected, 2020 brings one of the band’s most diverse and devastating creations to date.
