PARADISE LOST Releases Free 'Lost In Time' Greatest Hits Digital Sampler On Metal Sucks.net

After gracing the June cover of Decibel Magazine and recently releasing their 13th studio album, Tragic Idol, to critical acclaim, gothic/doom metallers PARADISE LOST will be coming back to the United States this fall with the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and KATATONIA for the "Epic Kings & Idols Tour" - PARADISE LOST's first North American run in five years!

In addition to new release Tragic Idol (out now on Century Media Records), six classic PARADISE LOST albums will be re-issued by The End Records on August 28. Tragic Idol was released April 24 and debuted with the strongest first-week sales in the band's illustrious history en route to charting in more than a dozen countries worldwide. The re-issues serve to further document the band's integral role as metal trailblazers.

To celebrate the occasion, PARADISE LOST has released a free digital sampler (**limited to 4,400 downloads**) on Metal Sucks.net. Entitled Lost In Time, this "greatest hits" sampler features artwork by Anthony Clarkson [DTP, IN THIS MOMENT, FEAR FACTORY] and is comprised of 1 track from each of PARADISE LOST's 13 albums.

Read on to find out what press worldwide have to say about PARADISE LOST's critically-acclaimed new album:

"'Worth Fighting For', 'To the Darkness', 'The Glorious End' and the stunning title track are halcyon days tunes, when the only things that mattered were Big Gulps, a Sony CD Walkman (with car adapter) and the music of change...'Tragic Idol' won't sway the 40,000+ morons who bought METALLICA's 'Beyond Magnetic' EP into believing in PARADISE LOST, but for the 40+ Painless--four of which hold residency at Decibel--still kicking around the States, it's a firm symbol that there's ample life left." -- DECIBEL MAGAZINE (US)

"Nearly 25 years into their career, PARADISE LOST demonstrate with 'Tragic Idol' that 13 (as in albums) can be a particularly exquisite number...the music only gets better as you dig deeper." - EXCLAIM! (CA)

"Another excellent PARADISE LOST record." -- METAL SUCKS.net (US)

"As the band near the 25-year mark in their storied career, the stark change in music direction from their early days of doom-laden death metal to the synth-metal of 'Host' to today's melodic brand of gothic metal tends to obscure the fact that they've been one of the most consistent acts in heavy music since the late Eighties...the melodies that can be found on 'Tragic Idol' are far more plaintive than soaring, and in places even downright sinister." -- GUITAR WORLD.com (US)

"'PARADISE LOST fans have plenty to look forward to from this album, and it's got cross-genre appeal due to the range of influences readily heard in the music." - METAL UNDERGROUND.com (US)

"'Tragic Idol'is easily the best that PARADISE LOST have sounded since the early-to-mid-nineties...PARADISE LOST's triumphant return to yesteryear is finally upon us. And oh what a glorious return it is." -- THE NEW REVIEW.net (US)

"PARADISE LOST are incapable of making anything mediocre." -- SPUTNIK MUSIC.com (US)

"...throbs with the vehement class we've come to expect." -- KERRANG (UK)

"...it's great to have these waylaid pioneers back doing what they do best." -- METAL HAMMER (UK)

"The band never ever presented their excellence better than today." - ROCK HARD (GER)

"This record has some of the most impressive songs they ever wrote." -- REVOLVER (SPAIN)

"This album reaches their most ambitious goal." -- METAL HAMMER (ITALY)

"PARADISE LOST fans couldn't wish for a better album than 'Tragic Idol'." -- AARDSCHOK (NL)

"PARADISE LOST is returning to their roots with an album that defines their original sound while sounding fresh and very inspired!" -- HARD ROCK MAG (FRANCE)
