Obsidian… dark, reflective and black: it’s a pretty decent description of the music that Paradise Lost have been making over the last 32 years, even though this most resilient of British metal bands have stoically refused to be pinned down to one easily defined formula. Powered by a lust for creativity and a stout devotion to haunting heaviness, Paradise Lost have defied the odds by coming back stronger than ever over the past decade.

For me personally, the band started to get back to the style I preferred of them after 2005.
I think in particular that the last 2 albums have been among their best, and I'm happy to say that this too, is an excellent piece of work and at least equal to if not better than (in my subjective view at least) as 'The Plague Within' and 'Medusa' . As I write, I'm listening to the album again and I've loved every track, but in especially: 'Darker Thoughts', 'Fall From Grace', The Devil Embraced' 'Ravenghast' and 'Defiler' but all are extremely strong on this latest opus. Keep up the good work lads!
Oh, and if you're a fan of Nick Holmes' vocals on this, give Bloodbath's 'The Arrow of Satan is Drawn' a whirl, his vocals are excellent on that too!
their different incarnations (even the host era ) but the last couple of albums have a been a real return to form and Obsidian is no exception. The album is a fine mix of crushing doom metal in the vein of the last album medusa and more gothic rock with layered keyboard sounds which this band do so
well the track ghost does have a sisters of mercy feel which is fine by me. There’s lots to like here for fans of the older heavier material and fans of icon draconian times era it dosen’t sound disjointed the songs all work well together from death growls to Nick Holmes more melodic clean vocals . My only criticism is after receiving the album amazon released a digipack version with two extra tracks which is a bit annoying but suppose I’ll have get a copy at a later date teach me
not preorder next time . However that takes nothing away from the quality of this album and I would recommend it to fans of great metal.
I will not highlight specific tracks as this a complete work making up of 9 parts.
This will certainly be hailed as another Paradise Lost classic.
