Back in 1993 England's Paradise Lost already had 3 full length records under their belt, along with a noble title as co-creator's of the sub-genre we call "Death/Doom Metal." Despite the bands unique goth-like previous releases, it wasn't until their 1993 "Icon" LP that Paradise Lost had gained widespread international acclaim. The band, regarded as mainstream rock stars in parts of Europe, have gone through more changes in sound, than line up changes total (a near-original line up for 21 years). In a most daring move, the band chose to go "electronic" at the height of their popularity and reinvent the wheel yet again introducing themselves as an Electronic-Doom band. I promise to never play videos from their electronic era, but I highly recommend a dose of inspiring records "Shades of God", "Icon" and "Draconian Times."
