British gothic metal act Paradise Lost will release their highly anticipated new album "Faith Divides Us - Death Unites Us" on Century Media Records on September 28, 2009 in Europe and October 6, 2009 in the US.
Now, "The Rise Of Denial", a brand new track from this landmark gothic metal opus has been posted at the band's redesigned MySpace site.
Guitarist Greg Mackintosh comments: "A classic PL song. This was the first song written for this album and the reason I decided to switch to 7 string guitars. It's almost like melodic, well structured grindcore. Dropping to 'A' really took this song in a different direction. It gives the song a kind of crushing, seething anger."
Vocalist Nick Holmes adds: "This song has a more 'old School' PL feel, particularly in the arrangement, and is definitely one of the most aggressive and instant tracks on the album. I find that aggressive vocals only work if the music is equally as aggressive and this is a good example. It was nice to write a song that ventures off musically for a few minutes before tying in at the end. A style we haven't done for quite some time. Lyrically this song deals with pushing problems away, burying one's head in the sand, something we all do at times I guess, but when people do it perpetually, it's a problem."
Also the title track of the album and another song called "As Horizons End" are available for streaming on the band's MySpace.
We have to do with a great new album but also with the most stupid videoclip a band has EVER created... i am not sure if this is PL's idea but if not it is a shame on them that they accepted it. it is at least disgusting...
