THE SONG THAT MADE ME WANT TO BE A GOTH

Kerrang! (UK) - - News -

EM­BERS FIRE PARADISELOST (1993) “[1993 al­bum] Icon and [1995’s] Dra­co­nian Times are my favourite Par­adise Lost records, and they both re­mind me of that turn­ing point in my life. So it was prob­a­bly this first track from Icon that made me turn my head and won­der, ‘What the fuck is this?!’ As soon as I heard it, I went and bought ev­ery­thing they’d ever done, in­clud­ing ran­dom bootlegs. They have been a mas­sive in­flu­ence on me and fed my fas­ci­na­tion with the darker side of mu­sic. I love how they’ve evolved over the years. They’ve taken risks, but al­ways stayed true to them­selves.”
