The Paradise Lost live show recorded last Guy Fawkes Night at The Mill, Bradford, will be released on CD/Blu-Ray and vinyl on 16 July 2021, via Nuclear Blast.
Guitarist and songwriter Greg Mackintosh told MetalTalk that “due to the ban on live music, we, like many other bands, have had to adapt and do something we never thought we’d have to do.”
A moribund version
Mackintosh continued: “No, not stacking shelves in Aldi like Metallica, but playing a show at a disused mill in Yorkshire with no one else there. We decided against trying to pretend there was an audience in the room with us, opting instead for a rather moribund version of a live lounge show.
“Whilst never being pleased with anything, we were, however, slightly less miserable at the result. It was also almost fun playing some of our new album Obsidian within the set for the first time. We can now announce that we will be releasing this show as an official CD/Blu-Ray and vinyl imaginatively entitled ‘At the Mill’.”
The filming of the show was directed by Ash Pears, who previously worked with the band on their music videos for ‘Medusa’ and ‘Obsidian’. It has been mixed by Les Smith and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano.
