Returning with opus number fourteen, The Plague Within, earlier this year, British goth metal pioneers Paradise Lost celebrated a tremendously successful year 2015 achieving top ten positions for the latter in Germany and Finland as well as chart entries in Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and their native UK.
Now, the band round off a highly successful year with another very special release that will excite the band’s global fanbase. Filmed and recorded in September 2014, Symphony For The Lost is a live album/DVD which captures Paradise Lost performing at the epic Ancient Roman Theatre of Philippopolis in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, featuring the Orchestra of State Opera Plovdiv and Rodna Pesen Choir.
Symphony For The Lost is set for release via Century Media on November 20th and is available as Special Edition 2CD+DVD deluxe edition with 48 page booklet and Ltd. Deluxe Gatefold 2LP+DVD with 16 page booklet as well as digital album.
You can pre-order your copy now.
Vocalist Nick Holmes states:
“We have recorded elements of orchestration many times in the studio over the last two decades, as many of our songs lend themselves well to classical arrangement. However, we have never before had the chance to play with a real orchestra in a live situation, so it was very exciting to have the opportunity to play with the Plovdiv Philharmonic and doing that in such a prestigious location as the Roman theatre.”
From “Gothic” over “Joys Of Emptiness” to “Soul Courageous”, “Last Regret” or “Victim Of The Past”, “Symphony For The Lost” spans the entire facets of the unique Paradise Lost sound, yet expands their trademark doom ‘n’ gloom with a classical dimension. Mandatory for any Paradise Lost fan!”
