Editors’ Notes Decades after first marrying ’80s goth-rock to Black Sabbath-style doom on their hugely influential early albums, venerable UK band Paradise Lost continue to explore new territory. On this 2015 set, they turn sharply toward grumbling black metal, coming off infuriated as much as somber. But cuts like “No Hope in Sight” incorporate the newfound growls into meticulous structures, while “Terminal” thrashes as hard as the band ever has. Yet “Victim of the Past” and “Return to the Sun” confirm again that few can beat them at rain-soaked, gothic depression.
