Paradise Lost: announces limited 10" for new compilation, "Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)"
From the harrowing doom of their 1990 debut Lost Paradise, to 1991's genre-defining Gothic, to 1995's break-out masterpiece Draconian Times, to 1997's electronically-tinged One Second, to 2007's return to a heavier form In Requiem, to last year's opus Tragic Idol, PARADISE LOST has continued to evolve since their inception in 1988, inspiring countless artists throughout the years. To celebrate their influence on the scene, a special compilation will be released this fall to commemorate the band's 25th anniversary landmark.
Entitled Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities), this album will be released on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America) and features artwork by Parisian designer Valnoir (www.metastazis.com), who has worked with artists such as ORPHANED LAND, MORBID ANGEL, WATAIN, and more than 150 others. All tracks found on the compilation are previously released rarities-except the new track "Loneliness Remains," and newly recorded "Gothic 2013" and "Our Saviour 2013." These three tracks will also appear on a 10" Vinyl (CM Distro Europe exclusive white Vinyl; limited to 100 copies) that includes a CD booklet and CD insert.
