Paradise Lost unveil lyric video for ‘The Longest Winter’

Paradise Lost unveil lyric video for ‘The Longest Winter’

7th July 2017 0 By Jon Deaux

Winter comes early this year, and today, cult metallers PARADISE LOST unveil the lyric video for their first single ‘The Longest Winter’ off their upcoming studio album »Medusa«. 

“I read a story about how wildlife was once beginning to flourish in the 30 mile exclusion zone after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 – particularly the wolf population,” Nick Holmes explains the background of the song. “It was nice to think that that no matter how much mankind tried to fuck the planet up directly or indirectly, life carries on in some shape or form. But humans are humans and I recently heard that there is already now ‘timed’ hunting trips organised into the exclusion zone…”

This crushing doom track will be one of the 8 songs to be included on the band’s 15th album, out on September 1st. The pre-order for »Medusa« starts today and you can now purchase the full-length release in several formats:
