Official Paradise Lost Biography “No Celebration” To Be Released In November

Decibel Books have announced that they will be publishing an official Paradise Lost biography titled “No Celebration: The Official Story Of Paradise Lost.” Limited edition hardcover copies of the book are available to pre-order HERE and they are expected to ship in late November.

Here’s a description of the book:

“‘No Celebration: The Official Story of Paradise Lost’ chronicles the British doom metal progenitors’ groundbreaking three decades-plus career with in-depth interviews, first-hand accounts and never-before-seen photos. Author David E. Gehlke takes readers into the depths of one of metal’s most enduring bands. Including a foreword from Bolt Thrower/Memoriam frontman Karl Willetts.”

Nick Holmes commented:

“[This is] a very in-depth, informative and — from my point of view — nostalgic look at the last 30 years of the band. Many of the stories feel like they were yesterday, and although it serves as a reminder that life is short, I also wouldn’t change a thing. Well, not much anyhow.”

Necronomicon have premiered a new song titled “Paradise Lost.” This track is from the band’s new album “Unus,” which will be released on October 18. Vocalist/guitarist Rob The Witch commented:

01. “From Ashes into Flesh”
02. “Infinitum Continuum”
03. “Paradise Lost”
