Paradise Lost : Lost Paradise

The debut album 'Lost Paradise' by Paradise Lost is by most regarded as a classic within the death/doom genre but was actually only a sense of things yet to come!. I think it is save to say this was one of the most influential works for the development of the death/doom genre.

The death-metal influences are still clear (both musically but also lyrically like on 'Our Saviour') and the sickening grunts by N. Holmes compliment the heavy atmosphere created on this album. Faster parts are regularly put in between the slow grinding overall sound of the album. The overall feel of darkness is however not affected by this; it insures the album remains interesting. G. Mackintosh rather unique bleak guitar sound and solo's also help a lot on this point.

This CD breathes misery and despair. Shamefully however also when it comes to the production. The sheer quality of the music however makes more then up for the bad production.
