2020 Best of Metal: #5 Paradise Lost-Obsidian

Release date: May 15, 2020

Origin: Halifax, England

Personnel: Nick Holmes-vox, Greg Mackintosh-guitar, Aaron Aedy-guitar, Steve Edmondson-bass, Waltteri Vayrynen-drums

16 goddamn albums! Seriously. It feels like Paradise Lost is one of those bands that every metalhead knows, but for some reason, they don’t seem to be held in the same status as some other bands with their longevity. I’m not really sure why that is, but I find myself kind of forgetting about them myself sometimes. And that’s a damn shame because these guys are still consistently churning out quality album after quality album. Obsidian is right up their with the best albums they have produced. There isn’t a weak song on this thing. Just straight up chugging doom. Just a perfect album for the 2020 vibe,
