Paradise Lost talk “retro” sound on Medusa

Paradise Lost guitarist Greg Mackintosh reports that band’s sound on upcoming album Medusa has a “retro vibe” to it

Paradise Lost’s upcoming album Medusa has a "retro vibe" to it, according to guitarist Greg Mackintosh.

The follow-up to 2015’s The Plague Within will arrive on September 1 via Nuclear Blast, with the UK outfit releasing a lyric video for The Longest Winter last week.

And in a new video interview with the label, Mackintosh talks about the sound on the new album and how it compares to their previous records.

The guitarist says: “We’ve tried out lots of things over the years – lots of different musical styles and a lot of people say that our style at the moment has come full circle. But we still mess around and try out different things in our music.

“I’d say the new album, if anything, is still going down the heavier route but I’d say there’s a little bit of of a retro side to it.

“We’ve gone for a very big drum sound and quite a fuzzy guitar tone. It has that retro vibe in with the doom metal.”

Paradise Lost are currently on tour across Europe. Find a full list of their live dates below.
