Paradise Lost : Host




Paradise Lost continue to surprise me. With 'Host', their 7th studio album, the surprise is once again a pleasant one. Die hard doom fans will probably dislike this album, as the sound continues to stray away from not only doom but metal altogether, and it's even poppier than it's predecessor, 'One Second'.

From a non-doom point of view, this album is superb. The melodies get better and better as the years go by, and so does Holmes' voice. Even with all the electronics involved, you can safely say this is Paradise Lost at their best. If you're looking for grunts and heavy guitars, avoid this one. If not, and you are simply looking for a great album, 'Host' is definately worth the money.
