Read on for some reviews of PARADISE LOST's critically acclaimed new album:

"The 14th visit to this sprawling PARADISE LOST estate is one of the most satisfying yet-'The Plague Within' reveals a band that has put in the time, blood, sweat, and oceans of tears necessary to perfect its particular/peculiar craft, and is now wholly focused on imbuing the resulting sound with ever-greater power." - 9/10, Decibel Magazine (USA)

"Deadly solemn, mature crystalline, elegance counterposed against a celebratory moderation of atavistic extreme impulses."  - 9/10, Metal Hammer (UK)

"PARADISE LOST have pounded a line straight through their lineage and have marched forth more relevant, heavier and diverse than they have sounded in years." - The Quietus (UK)

" opus 'The Plague Within' is simply the most potent expression of the band's morose ethos in two decades." - The Guardian (UK)

"PARADISE LOST travel back to their very roots to find the perfect balance between epicness, melancholy and brutality."  - Lagrosseradio (F)

"Back to the early years, massive riffs, great melodies, death vocals and doom influences along with this hypnotic charm" - Metallian (F) 

"With PARADISE LOST's impressive song-writing capabilities, has resulted in an excellent album that is sure to please fans of all eras of these legends." - 88/100, Lords Of Metal (NL) 

"On 'The Plague Within' you can hear the very best side of PARADISE LOST." - 85/100, Aardschok (NL)
