PARADISE LOST - IN REQUIEM - CENTURY MEDIA  
It is certainly odd to listen to Never For The Damned, In Requiem’s opener, and be reminded of Metallica, but that is the case helped immensely by Nick Holmes’ vocals. Further into the song Paradise Lost delves into its trademark gothic, dark corners but the song retains a clear heavy metal feel. Ash & Debris follows and carries heavy doomy riffs and a good dosage of the gothic melancholy. Enemy, dominated by heavy riffs, is somewhat catchy. Praise Lamented Shades is gothic and dark through and through and the listener can hear where a commercially successful band like Linkin Park could have drawn some of their inspiration. Besides the purely Paradise Lost elements Requiem is sometimes a mix of progressive and heavy metal not unlike a Dream Theater and Pantera fusion. Unreachable is more gothic and melancholy with clean vocals aplenty. Prelude To Descent drops a bit of the doomy into the mix again. Fallen Children doesn’t add anything to what has been done already. Beneath Black Skies is of the Type O Negative school of gothic. Sedative God is on the heavier and catchier side of things. Your Own Reality closes Paradise Lost’s latest with a ballad. In short, In Requiem will satisfy fans of the band and the genre but others will be hard pressed to accept all of the 45 minutes here. - Anna Tergel
