This track stands as a positive affirmation of Paradise Lost's importance as a metal band in the year The major difference here from their recent run of records is that you can just feel the purpose and excitement emanating from each member of this legendary act, and that, coupled with extremely forceful songwriting, is what makes The Plague Within an essential part of their year existence. The Plague Within also leads you to question the creation of art in later life and how an artist's formative years can once again inspire them to seek out the vital energy that rippled through their early work.
Notwithstanding the influence of Bloodbath and Vallenfyre, the success of Carcass's Surgical Steel must have, in some way, impacted Paradise Lost's thought process prior to writing: Carcass's acknowledgement of what their fans love about them and what fans wanted to hear on a new record helped focus the direction of their comeback album, which is now rightly regarded as a modern classic.
Paradise Lost: The Plague Within
While the circumstances of both bands are obviously different, especially in that Paradise Lost have been active since their inception and have released way more albums, The Plague Within has the overall feel of a shrewd comeback attempt. This is primarily because their 14th studio album showcases a newly determined band, one completely comfortable and keen to explore their extreme past — just listen to the fiery death metal expulsed during 'Flesh From Bone' — in order to breathe new life into their well-established sound.
Consequentially, Paradise Lost have pounded a line straight through their lineage and have marched forth more relevant, heavier and diverse than they have sounded in years. Share this article:.
