Post Paradise Lost "Obsidian" 2020

the press release talks of 80s goth rock and dancefloor fillers, but the leadoff single is doomy enough to post here:

The sixteenth PARADISE LOST studio album, "Obsidian" eschews its immediate predecessors’ gruesome, myopic approach in favour of a richer and more dynamic deluge of black shades. From the deceptive elegance and dual atmospheres of opener 'Darker Thoughts' through to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn closer 'Ravenghast'; "Obsidian" reveals a band in masterful control of a broad array of vital ideas. Most noticeably, the record boasts several songs that draw heavily from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of ‘80s gothic rock: in particular, newly-minted PARADISE LOST anthem 'Ghosts' is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub.

"It's one of the most eclectic albums we have done in some time, we have miserable songs, sad songs ,slow songs and faster songs. Did I mention miserable?" - Nick Holmes.

well, this song is classic Paradise Lost, like they never left their cupboard... dancefloor fillers? Welcome to a revisited "Host" maybe?

It's not Doom...
