Bleak and tortured doom in the vein of Bethlehem. Slightly minimalistic riffage and screamed vocals create an atmosphere of despair....

Paradise Lost : Shades Of God



The extremely heavy and slow sound of the previous two albums is has been sacrificed to an extent on 'Shades of God'. The speed of most songs has seriously gone up to create a slightly more accessible sound. There also isn't as much experimentation as on 'Gothic' giving way to a more "in your face" type of song structures.

However the depressive nature of the music and the dark atmosphere have not suffered at all. Besides an increase in speed it is also the last album where N. Holmes still uses grunts. Although my personal favourite, a lot of fans complain about the fact that the music is simpler and about that the songs are more monotone than before. This in my opinion adds a lot to the depressive nature of the album. This is also the album that holds 'As I Die', Paradise Lost's best known song.
