Paradise Lost : Draconian Times




With 'Icon' Paradise Lost had so far only worried their old fan base; with 'Draconian Times' a lot of those fans turned their back on them. With this release we can be save to say that the heaviness of old Paradise Lost has gone completely. It has given way to creating catchy sounding metal tunes with a touch of sadness. The album in this is a clear continuation of the path set with 'Icon' towards Goth influenced metal/rock.

This however does not mean it is a bad album at all. Althrough they left their more depressive sound behind the album is certainly not filled with happiness and joy. This combined with their more up-tempo and catchy sound means that the album is perfect for people who enjoy a more gothic-metal sounding sound. Good solid "depro rock and roll" might actually be a nice description for this album.
