PARADISE LOST Announces Re-Recorded Version Of Icon, Streams "Widow"

As doomy as ever.


Paradise Lost has completely re-recorded their 1993 album Icon for its 30th birthday and so far it sounds awesome. You can check out the new version of "Widow" below and pre-order the new version of Icon here prior to its December 1 release date.

"Our specific record deal around the time we signed for the Icon album meant we would never actually own the rights to our music or artwork, so going forward, to reissue the album ourselves for the 30th anniversary, it was necessary to re-record and completely re-do the album cover," said Paradise Lost vocalist Nick Holmes of the new version.

"Re-recording Icon has not only enabled us to release it as a series of collectors editions on vinyl but it was also great to revisit some songs from a lifetime ago. Nothing can replace those original recordings or ever will, they are a nostalgic part of all our lives but it has been a lot of fun revisiting those early MFN days once again, and I hope the end result displays that!"

The new version of Icon is also Paradise Lost's first effort with new drummer Guido Zima Montanarini, who joined earlier this year. Waltteri Väyrynen left the band in 2022 and has since joined Opeth.

Paradise Lost has two special UK shows lined up with My Dying Bride for this December. Get your tickets here.

12/1 London, UK – Shepherds Bush Empire
12/14 Bradford, UK – St. George's
