In their Pokémon-like bid to “catch ’em all”, Nuclear Blast seem to be intent on signing ever good band from the 80’s and 90’s. Well, they’ve just snagged another one with the addition of Halifax-based goth/doom metal legends Paradise Lost.
Vocalist Nick Holmes commented:
Paradise Lost’s career has run alongside Nuclear Blast Records since the label began in the late 80’s. And as huge fans of original death metal, we still have the majority of the label’s first releases from those very early days. It’s pretty incredible to see how the label has become a real force in metal music over the years, both in Europe and America and now, nearly 30 years later, in a new chapter for the band, it’s exciting for Paradise Lost to be a part of Nuclear Blast!
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger adds:
As a fan from day one I’ve been following Paradise Lost ever since their death metal era, but have also enjoyed watching them grow into something even bigger and so unique. They defined and later on re-defined the gothic genre and always delivered the most dark and memorable songs. It’s a great pleasure to finally welcome the band to the ever-growing Nuclear Blast family! Needless to say that we’re very much looking forward to this partnership!
