English gothic metallers, Paradise Lost, have begun working on a new album entitled “Tragic Idol.” This will be the band’s thirteenth studio album. Lead guitarist Gregor Mackintosh has stated:
“We are currently holed up in The Chapel studios in Lincolnshire, England recording our new album which is entitled ‘Tragic Idol’. The album will again be produced by Jens Bogren and is influenced by classic doom metal and classic metal. I would say it is more melodic than the last record whilst retaining the heaviness. There are lots of guitar solos and melodies. The album will contain such track titles as ‘Honesty in Death’, ‘Theories from Another World’, ‘In this We Dwell’ and the title track ‘Tragic Idol’.”
The new album will be released April 24th 2012 in North America and April 23rd in Europe through Century Media.
