British metal / hard rock band
Paradise Lost are a gothic metal band that formed in 1988 in Halifax, England. The band's 1991 album, Gothic, was a seminal album in the doom/death genre. Paradise Lost gradually polished its sound during the mid-90s and started incorporating electronic instrumentation beginning with their 1997 album, One Second. With 2002's Symbol of Life, Paradise Lost diminished its use of electronic elements in favour of a return to a guitar-oriented approach. Paradise Lost has proven to be influential, with Jonas Renkse of Katatonia saying that his band started off "as Paradise Lost fanboys".
