PARADISE LOST Unleashes First Single, ‘The Longest Winter’; Pre-Order For Album And 7” Launched

Winter comes early this year, and today, cult metallers PARADISE LOST unveil the lyrics video for their first single “The Longest Winter” off their upcoming studio album “Medusa“. Check out the lyrics video below.

“I read a story about how wildlife was once beginning to flourish in the 30 mile exclusion zone after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 – particularly the wolf population,” Nick Holmes explains the background of the song. “It was nice to think that that no matter how much mankind tried to f*ck the planet up directly or indirectly, life carries on in some shape or form. But humans are humans and I recently heard that there is already now ‘timed’ hunting trips organised into the exclusion zone…”
