PARADISE LOST Announces New Drummer

Also, new album in 2024!

Guido Zima

Paradise Lost has announced Guido Zima as their new drummer. Zima already works with Paradise Lost frontman Gregor Mackintosh in his side project Strigoi, so it's a pretty logical choice. Zima replaces longtime drummer Waltteri Väyrynen, who left the band in 2022 and has since joined Opeth.

"We welcome Guido as Paradise Lost's new drummer," said Mackintosh. "He cut his teeth with us on our European tour at the end of 2022. Guido did such a good job that we have decided to make him our new drummer and he will be playing on all upcoming Paradise Lost shows and working on new material with us for our next album due out next year."

While you're waiting for the new Paradise Lost record, catch the band at one of the dates below.
