Paradise Lost – GOTHIC Special Edition CD/DVD
'Gothic' was THE album responsible for a whole sub genre of metal, GOTHIC DOOM METAL, upon its release in 1991. Creating a more melancholy & atmospheric form of doom metal, with the introduction of the distinctive & unmistakable Paradise Lost lead guitar melodies, the band was quickly propelled to the forefront of pioneering extreme metal bands of the early nineties.
The 'Gothic' album was recorded in late 1990/early 1991 at the renowned Academy Studios in Yorkshire; a studio responsible for classic recordings from bands such as My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth, Bal Sagoth, among many others.
Along with the album, this special edition contains a very rare video performance from a 1991 Paradise Lost show (that evening supported by My Dying Bride & Pitch Shifter) & features classic tracks from their first 2 albums.
This release also coincides with the 20 year celebration of the band, in which Paradise Lost teamed up for a handful of very special shows in September with the other leaders of the early nineties doom metal revolution, namely My Dying Bride & Anathema.
