Le légendaire groupe britannique de Death/Doom/Gothic Metal Paradise Lost vient de dévoiler un premier morceau extrait de leur nouvel album, "Medusa", il s'agit du titre, 'The Longest Winter'. Il se découvre ci-dessous.
Celui-ci est prévu pour le premier septembre prochain chez Nuclear Blast Records.
On vous laisse ci-dessous les commentaires de deux des membres de la formation:
Greg Mackintosh: "Whilst we were writing »Medusa« and realising what the new songs were becoming, we had to find an artist to reflect this direction. After searching around for a while, I found Branca Studios. They have a keen eye for design and their modern take on retro artwork really fit the bill. What they have come up with is a blending of colourful yet retro styling, whilst maintaining the classic PARADISE LOST feel."
Nick Holmes: "I was intrigued about a greater meaning and thinking more along the lines of what Medusa represents metaphorically. Medusa as a title works in many ways. From a nihilist perspective, when I read the description of 'medusa' on the wikipedia page: 'Attempts to avoid looking into Medusa's eyes represents avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless' - the title was pretty much in the bag!"
