Paradise Lost Load First Cut from “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us” to MySpace
British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST will release their highly anticipated new album Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us on Century Media Records on October 6 in the US. You can now get a first impression of the new opus at the band’s official MySpace page and enjoy the album’s stunning opening track “As Horizons End”.
Nick Holmes (vocals) comments:
“This song is about someone who’s on a downward spiral. Working too hard and trying to claw back some positive spirit by participating in all the so called joyous occasions in life, socialising and networking but to no avail, the long days have crushed the soul till only disappointment and cynicism remains. This song was inspired by the thousands of dishevelled looking middle aged businessmen I see in airports each year. This track has had a dozen face lifts since its inception and in true fashion, it was never intended to be the first track. Once it was mixed though it was hard to imagine any other song opening the album.”
Greg Mackintosh (guitars) adds:
“The whole point to this song was to capture a feeling of foreboding. Like when a thunderstorm is approaching. All the chord progressions are supposed to give an ominous sense of dread. The mid section lulls you into thinking that you’re safe only to discover there is much bigger storm on the horizon.”
