Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström has said in several interviews that Bloodbath had already a new singer but he wasn’t allowed to reveal his name, due to the lack of contract. He did say “Oh, he’s a legend!” but no one expected that legend to be Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost. The news hit us this morning via Metal Hammer, with the following quotes:

“Ever since I got into Lost Paradise back in 1990,” says Jonas Renkse, Nick Holmes has been one of my favourite growling vocalists out there. He was always audible and articulate but still deep and definitely morbid. It is a great pleasure to work with him some 25 years later after I was introduced to his thunderous roar!”

“Little did I expect to be working with the voice behind the death metal classic Lost Paradise, or the genre-defining Gothic and yet here we are decades later, fulfilling another death metal dream. With his sinister and ominous vocal delivery, it’s an absolute pleasure to make Old Nick the bell-ringer in Bloodbath‘s grand morbid funeral!”, adds Blakkheim.

Like they say, it’s been almost 25 years since “Lost Paradise” and everybody knows that Paradise Lost doesn’t use growls anymore. Is “Old Nick” still up to it? Let’s wait and see!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 3rd October 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Yorkshire’s own Gothic-doom lords Paradise Lost are currently premiering their newest track, Gothic 2013, which is slab of darkness taken from their upcoming release Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities). The aforementioned album will be released on Monday 21st October.  the new track can be streamed below.

All tracks found on the compilation are previously released rarities — except the new track Loneliness Remains, newly recorded Gothic 2013 and Our Saviour 2013. These three tracks will also appear on a 10” Vinyl (CM Distro Europe exclusive white Vinyl; limited to 100 copies) that includes a CD booklet and CD insert.
Nick Holmes comments on Gothic 2013:

When the opportunity came up for us to re-record Gothic, we were really pleased because it meant that we could finally do the song justice (production wise) and Simon Efemey had the chance to give it his polish. Gothic has often been considered a bench mark in our early career and it was good to revisit it.
