Today, gothic-doom metallers PARADISE LOST and Terrorizer UK have teamed-up to premiere the band's newly recorded track, "Gothic 2013", taken from their upcoming album, Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities). Due out on October 21st in Europe (digitally on November 5th in North America), Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities) 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 this 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 mint green 10" vinyl (USA exclusive color; limited to 300 copies), which can be pre-ordered here.
PARADISE LOST's Nick Holmes (vocals) comments: "When the opportunity came up for us to re-record 'Gothic', we were really pleased because it meant that we could finally do the song justice (production wise) and Simon Efemey had the chance to give it his polish. 'Gothic' has often been considered a bench mark in our early career and it was good to revisit it."
