Paradise Lost

Draconian Times (25th Anniversary Edition): Heavyweight Transparent Blue Vinyl 2LP


Release date: 4 December, 2020

Hailed as ‘The European Metallica’, the 1995 masterpiece solidified the British band’s position at the top table of British metal. With some success already in the bag, the band’s rising status allowed them to deliver their most accomplished sound to date, and a collection of songs that are magnificently heavy, but with a cool, gothic sheen. It remains Paradise Lost’s most acclaimed and adored body of work, and era of the band. The 25th Anniversary edition features the re-mastered mix of 2011’s Legacy CD & Digital release. It also comes furnished with new liner notes from journalist and long standing fan Nick Ruskell, a never seen before deep dive into the record’s lyrics and themes from vocalist Nick Holmes, and memories from the band. The double LP is pressed onto heavyweight audiophile vinyl, housed in a premium gatefold sleeve, and presented on exclusive transparent blue vinyl. The CD also sees the band open their vaults and provide a version that comes with an extra disc of bonus and rare, unreleased material from the Draconian Times era.
