With the release of their fifteenth album ‘Medusa’, PARADISE LOST sound stronger than ever, returning to their heavier, doomier roots. Vocalist NICK HOLMES and guitarist GREGOR MAC KINTOSH tell us how it was all inspired by ‘Clash Of The Titans’ and one very special song…



Even before you listen to the harsh, miserable doom that will bleed out of your speakers, just look at that album cover and even that simple title, ‘Medusa’. It all evokes images of creepy ’70s/early ’80s horror movies, doesn’t it? In fact, if one didn’t know better, we’d say someone’s been watching ‘Clash Of The Titans’ in the Paradise Lost camp and got a little carried away. But wait, do we actually know better?

“When we are demoing the songs, Greg always calls them the first title that comes to his mind, like ‘doom’ or ‘end of’. So this time he called one of the songs ‘Medusa’ and I just presumed he’d been watching the 1980s ‘Clash Of The Titans’ film,” vocalist Nick Holmes says.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Every month when it comes to writing this editorial, I sit back and tot up how many new records I’ve listened to in the time we’ve worked on getting this bad boy to the printers, and then I contemplate just how many more we’ve got to sift through for the upcoming issues as well. I literally lose count every time and for that I’m thankful. Never does it stop being fun listening to music each and every day. For me, Terrorizer also gives an opportunity for some of those bands to talk about their creations and the stories behind them. These are aspects that to me are as equally as important as the music itself. The written word can then bring those stories to life and that, in essence, is the importance of magazines and why they are still relevant in a social media driven world. Life isn’t just a soundbite or a meme and neither is music, so being able to share the stories behind Myrkur’s stunning new album or the dark, personal journey behind Akercocke’s brilliant ‘comeback’ album is vital. I hope you enjoy reading the features as much as I did when they landed in my inbox. Alongside those two pieces, as always there’s a fuck load of awesome bands featured and the odd controversial review to boot. It’s been a blast to create the issue and we’re already hard at work at the new one so we’ll see you very soon! Stay tuned. Darren Sadler
