Paradise Lost to reissue 1997’s One Second

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost will reissue their 1997 album One Second later this summer.

It’s being launched by Music For nations on July 14 to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s sixth album.

The follow-up to 1995’s Draconian Times marked a turning point for the band, who left behind their harder edge to concentrate on a more gothic sound by experimenting with keyboards.

Vocalist Nick Holmes says: “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.”

The reissue has been remastered by the band’s current producer Jaime Gomez with the 2CD version featuring a live performance from London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire from 1998.

One Second is now available for pre-order in a variety of bundles. Find the tracklist and cover art below.

Paradise Lost will release their 15th studio album Medusa on September 1 via Nuclear Blast. It’s described as “melding crushing doom metal with Nick Holmes’ harsh death growls and raw organic sounds, heralding a new era of pure Northern misery.”

The band will head out on tour from next month, with shows planned across the UK and Europe.
