Paradise Lost drops another consistent gothic, doom metal monster
COMMENTS:
On Paradise Lost's fifteenth full-length album, 'Medusa', they continue down the gothic doom track that started back up with 2005's self-titled album. However, this time, they've dropped a lot of the clean production in favor for a gloomier, grittier sound, and it's definitely the right move for the music contained within. Although Gregor Mackintosh hit a home run earlier this year with the new Vallenfyre release, he still saved some of his heavy and doomier riffs for 'Medusa'. Nick Holmes does a great job evening out the clean and death vocals. Although 'Medusa' is not my favorite PL album, I'd have to say it's at least in the top 5.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Classic Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Vallenfyre
