Nick Holmes commented:

“Looking at the artwork for ‘The Lost And The Painless‘ and remembering those early albums and live shows, It’s amazing to think that ‘Gothic‘ was released 30 years ago.

It serves as a very important chapter in the life of the band and conjures a lot of nostalgia from the early 90’s. We lived off crisps, slept in squats, on people’s floors and under vehicles. Cigarettes were £1.50 a packet, Stella Artois beer was still 5.2% proof, and travelling in a Ford Transit van with all the equipment and 10 people sitting on an old mattress was considered normal.

Distant memories aside, it was also a great time for Death Metal music in general, and ‘The Lost And The Painless‘ serves as a timely reminder.”

Osbourne commented:

“I have a lot of great memories of making the album. We worked hard on the record with John Purdell and Duane Baron, who became extra two members of the band. Before we went into the studio, we discussed what we were going to do — everything was planned.

It’s so nice when you get a producer who’s more like a part of the band than them saying, ‘nah, you do it this way.’ Because we write them and when you write the songs, you have a mental picture of how you think you want it to sound.

Sometimes you’re surprised for the better, but other times you’re disappointed, but John and Duane did an extraordinary job on the album. It was really, really well done. Every song was worked on for a long time and we spent extra time trying to get things right.

But there was also lots of goofing around and we had a good time making it. And Zakk’s playing on it is spectacular.”

Guitarist Zakk Wylde added:

“On the first record, it was, like, ‘I can’t believe I’m here.’ I had definitely crawled into the fire and kept thinking. ‘You gotta produce. You got to come up with some cool stuff.’ On ‘No More Tears‘, I guess I was more relaxed. With Ozzy, whenever we’re playing riffs, he would be like ‘keep playing that riff.’

Pretty much every time he just gets up there and starts singing what comes to him naturally, he knocks it out of the park all the time. I mean, there’s very, very few times where he’s actually said, ‘No, let me come back to that. I don’t like what I’m singing. I’ll come up with something better.’

Whatever you’re hearing on the record is pretty much first thing he started singing that naturally came out of him, that he started hearing in his head. Which is amazing. My love for him and admiration for him has just gotten even stronger and bigger over the years.

It’s bigger than the music. It’s always a good time whenever we’re together, it’s always like it’s a laugh fest, and then making the records is beyond hilarious as well.”
