Most people will know Medusa as the Gorgon from Greek mythology; she is the infamous beast with venomous snakes for hair who will turn anyone that dares to look into her eyes to stone. It is this hideous creature who PARADISE LOST have chosen to be the figureheard for their 15th studio album, as, from a philosophical perspective, she is more than simply a monster. Singer Nick Holmes started his research, intrigued to find greater meaning behind the symbol of Medusa and became particularly fascinated by the Gorgon’s nihilistic connotations. “Attempts to avoid looking into her eyes represent avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless”, is an idea that was adopted by American novelist Jack London, and a thought that could have easily emerged from PARADISE LOST’s lyrics over the past 3 decades.

PARADISE LOST present all their classics recorded live at The Ancient Roman Theatre of Philippopolis in Plovdiv, Bulgaria featuring the Orchestra of State Opera Plovdiv and Rodna Pesen Choir. 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." Orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan, who already has given the classical treatment to works by Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Nirvana, Judas Priest, and many more as well as collaborating with Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and other prestigious soloists, “Symphony For The Lost” not only presents classic and current PARADISE LOST songs in an astonishing musical fashion, but also an impressive visual setting.

On March 16th, Britain's cult metallers PARADISE LOST will release a remastered version of their legendary seventh studio album, »Host«, and a first-ever pressing of the songs on vinyl.
Originally released in 1999, »Host« earned PARADISE LOST their reputation as West Yorkshire's musical chameleon, as it saw the band moving further away from their previous death metal roots to a melancholic and catchier electropop sound.
