Paradise Lost - Shades of God (Vinyl)
Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1988 & are known for being the founders of the Gothic Death/Doom Metal genre; a style fully brought into existence with their genre-defining second album, the highly influential ?Gothic?.
Having released 2 albums, including ?Gothic?, for the UK?s Peaceville Records & later helping to establish Peaceville as home to the finest trio of UK doom bands (alongside My Dying Bride & Anathema), Paradise Lost then signed with fellow UK label, Music For Nations which eventually led to the band breaking through to mainstream rock & metal audiences as their style evolved.
?Shades of God? was the band?s third album, first for Music for Nations, & it was released in 1992. Following ?Gothic?, Paradise Lost's writing evolved significantly, with more rock elements introduced & refined structuring mixed with the classic heavy doom trademark sound, including the unmistakable & hugely effective guitar lead-work.
The album was produced by Simon Efemey & recorded at Longhome Studios, Northants in March / April 1992 & features the classic artwork of notable artist Dave Mckean.
This edition of "Shades of God" is presented on heavyweight black vinyl.
