Paradise Lost - Medusa

Paradise Lost was probably the head of the triumvirate of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Anathema, three of the strongest doom/death metal bands that came out of Britain in the 90s single-handedly signaling the shift in musical opinion as far as metal is concerned in the British Isles. By far the most successful of the bunch, Paradise Lost did really make a mark on the metal scene and was touted to become the next big thing in the mid-90s, with albums like “Icon” and “Draconian Times” becoming firm fan favorites. Their “Draconian Times” gig was actually the second gig I ever attended after Accept’s 94 Athenian stint, so count me impressed and a rather old timer.
