PARADISE LOST - One Second (12" Gatefold DOUBLE LP)
United Kingdom | Doom/Death (old), Gothic Rock/Metal (new)
Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 & are known for being the founders of the Gothic Death/Doom Metal genre; a style fully brought into existence with their genre-defining second album, the highly influential 'Gothic'. Having released 2 albums, including 'Gothic', for the UK's Peaceville Records & later helping to establish Peaceville as home to the finest trio of UK doom bands (alongside My Dying Bride & Anathema), Paradise Lost then signed with fellow UK label, Music For Nations which eventually led to the band breaking through to mainstream rock & metal audiences as their style evolved. 'One Second', the band's sixth album, was originally released in 1997 on the Music For Nations label & became a big hit for the band, even entering the top 10 in the German charts upon release. The album was recorded at Battery Studios & Rockfield Studios with producer Ulf "Sank" Sandqvist, & was notable for featuring more streamlined gothic rock tracks & a large portion of electronic elements, while still retaining the trademark Paradise Lost guitar style. The album was a great success, as was the single, 'Say Just Words', as featured on 'One Second'.
