Gothic metallers PARADISE LOST are well known for their intense videos from their two previous albums. “The Enemy” from the 2007 album In Requiem was shot on the Crimea peninsula and caused some problems with TV companies due to the execution scenes. The video for the title track of Faith Divides Us, Death Unites Us from 2009 was even more disturbing with its scenes of physical and emotional abuse. The brand new “Honesty In Death” video from the band’s upcoming album, Tragic Idol, keeps this tradition. Watch the new video here:
Greg Mackintosh (guitar) comments: “We are very excited about the premiere of our ‘Honesty In Death’ video. In my opinion it is the best video we have ever done. Matt Green, who I had previously worked with on the VALLENFYRE ‘Cathedrals of Dread’ video, directed it. He did such a great job with VALLENFYRE that we knew he would be able to do something really special for PARADISE LOST. The result is a very powerful, but very grim short film with brief cameos by the band, that is sure to resonate with people who see it.”
PARADISE LOST’s upcoming album, Tragic Idol, is scheduled for a worldwide release through Century Media Records on April 23rd in Europe and April 24th in North America. More news about PARADISE LOST and Tragic Idol will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
