Paradise Lost and Faith No More 2015.. The tale of two icon's
Ok my readers I'm going to try something if you like it you need to let me know or this is a one and done. I'm going to talk about two long running bands and how they have come full circle in their music and deserve press in the underground for both making two the better albums in 2015..
So let's talk for a minute both bands have a new album out in 2015 and both have defined a genre
Paradise Lost the Doom/ Goth Metal world and Faith No More That Alt Metal world.
With " The Plague Within" Paradise Lost has turned too the two sounds that made them a legend of the scene mix the Gothic Doom sound of the 1st two albums " Paradise Lost and Icon " with the Thrashing / Heavy Metallica elements of "Draconian Times" . This is a full circle moment for a fan like me as these are the albums that had the most power and passion so if you would like to feed your soul with some other stellar Paradise lost albums here are the 3 I speak of below.The mix of guttural vocals the dark down tuned guitars and gothic elements works so very well with this bands ideals..
Nick does sing for Bloodbath now and they did make an interesting album to check out if you want to hear a more extreme side of music
On to a very different band Faith No More..
Then just check out Fantomas and Mr Bungle two of Patton's other bands and more fringe brilliance..
Both bands has a moment where the experiment with sounds and it didn't work . Paradise lost had these releases where Electronica, Goth and Pop elements made them a band where I could not recommend.. Avoid these two at all costs.. "HOST" and "Believe in Nothing"
and as said above " Real Thing and Album of the Year" for Faith No More
To End this I will say both Paradise Lost and Faith No More have made amazing releasing in 2015 and if it's any look into where the bands are going they are very comfortable in both their skins now and know what works for them and I hope the next releases grow and expand on these ideals and for years to come...
