Paradise Lost are set to release the 20th anniversary edition of their 1997 album One Second on 14th July, via Music For Nations.
Having continually proved themselves to be at the forefront of the UK rock and metal scene, One Second was a significant a turning point for the band, a moment in time when they left behind their death/doom past and fully embraced electronics and their gothic direction.
20 years on from its original release, the singles “Say Just Words” and the title track are still performed live and so revered by the band is the album that PL are planning exclusive live performances of One Second at selected festivals this year.
Vocalist Nick Holmes comments:
“The album really was a vast departure from Draconian Times and for better or worse the beginning of a very experimental stage for the band. Either way ‘One Second’ will always remain a vital cog in the band’s close to 30 year history. We are happy to be working with Music For Nations again on this release.”
Re-mastered by the band’s current producer, Jaime Gomez, and with a CD version featuring a live concert from the time – which was only previously available on DVD – this is a ‘must have’ for any Paradise Lost fan, or anyone with an interest in delving deeper into the band’s formidable back catalogue.
