Original news, posted on 19.06.2009

British gothic metal pioneers Paradise Lost have named their upcoming new album "Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us". Vocalist Nick Holmes comments:

"The thoughts behind the title "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us" are very much self explanatory, there is so much division in the world caused by obstructing religious belief. We are all made of the same flesh and bone, what makes one religions better than the other, and would any true god allow his creation to destroy itself? The vast number of different so called faiths around the globe, just helps to strengthen my complete denial of any god, and force the belief that religion is nothing more than a man made cash induced fabrication to exploit a human beings natural fear of death."

"Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us", the highly anticipated follow-up to 2007's "In Requiem" will be released on Century Media Records in September 2009! Expect the band's darkest and heaviest effort to date!

In May 2009, Paradise Lost also released their demos "Paradise Lost" (1988) and "Frozen Illusion" (1989) accompanied by six live tracks from the "Plains Of Desolation" bootleg officially on CD for the very first time. Featuring extensive liner notes by vocalist Nick Holmes and a stunning vinyl replica packaging, the strictly limited "Drown In Darkness - The Early Demos" is a must-have for every Paradise Lost fan.

UPDATE (thanks to Faithless Martyr)

A brand new Paradise Lost track, entitled "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us", has officially been launched at the band's MySpace page.

"Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us" is the title track from the band's forthcoming album, which will be released on September 28 in Europe (October 6 in the US) via Century Media Records.

The cover artwork, which is based upon a Danse Macabre woodcut by Hans Holbein the Younger (first published in 1538), was created by Stefan Wibbeke at Medialogistics (Lacuna Coil, Poisonblack, etc.).

Nick Holmes (vocals) comments on the track as follows: "This song had a massive overhaul in the last few weeks before recording, and thankfully it worked out well. Unlike many bands, we try to know exactly what we are doing once we are in the studio. So re-writes near recording time are as scary as they can be can be rewarding. This song is swathed in melancholy and the closest thing on the album to a "ballad" perhaps. Lyrically the title says it all. I find faith an oddity in that some people may have such devout belief that the only common ground with another human is death itself."

I like the medieval feeling of the artwork.

I lost interest in Paradise Lost, so probably I won't listen to this.

Same here... And that makes me quiet sad you know. Because everytime I listen to albums from Lost Paradise to Draconian Times I discover new things and how they were brilliant in the beginning [Although I do like Host...]
Now I feel like the magic is lost, good music indeed... But without that feeling from their old albums.

Great song and artwork though... But I'm not more interested than to just download this if I ever remember to do it in the first place.

This new song is too close to "believe in nothing" style. Just a bit heavier with those sounds. I hope it's really the one and only "ballad" on that album.
