Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us, says Paradise Lost
The new Paradise Lost album will be called ‘Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us’ and will be released on Century Media Records in September 2009! According to the band, this is the darkest and heaviest effort to date!
Paradise Lost newest releases where always of a surprise, as with each album they presented a different unexpected musical style from the previous album. This can be noticed from the distorted heavy guitars and growling From Lost Paradise, their first album to an electro pop sound like ‘Depeche Mode’ in their 8th album, Host.
I personally liked all their releases, although I was disappointed with their latest 2 albums, ‘Paradise Lost’ and ‘In requiem’. They sound very similar to each other, and are quite flat toned. Let’s hope for the better for the upcoming 13th album.
Paradise Lost’s vocalist Nick Holmes comments on the album’s title; “there is so much division in the world caused by obstructing religious belief” and “We are all made of the same flesh and bone, what makes one religions better than the other, and would any true god allow his creation to destroy itself?” – Well said Nick!
Looking forward for this 13th album, let’s hope that like all their first 8th albums, this release will bring along another surprise.
