Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost are an iconic, pioneering doom metal band from England. Founded in 1988, the band has maintained a stable line-up, only ever changing drummers.  By 1989, the band had signed to the famed Peaceville Records, known for releasing bands like Autopsy and My Dying Bride. Paradise Lost have experimented with a multitude of styles beyond death/doom metal, including synthpop and electronic rock. Their output including keyboards and symphonic female vocals helped inspire gothic metal. At the end of the day though, Paradise Lost is synonymous with doom metal.

Triptykon is the latest musical brainchild of Thomas Gabriel Fischer, founding member of metal pioneers Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and Apollyon Sun. Fischer announced his departure from Celtic Frost in May 2008 and shortly afterwards revealed his new project would be entitled Triptykon, which is a play on the word tryptych, as Triptykon is Thomas Gabriel Fischer's third project after Hellhammer and Celtic Frost. Triptykon are currently working on their second studio album, which is scheduled for release sometime in 2014.  

My Dying Bride

My Dying Bride are an English doom metal band formed in Bradford, England in 1990.  Along with Anathema and Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride is a forerunner of the death/doom metal genre and considered part of the "Peaceville Three" as all three bands were signed to Peaceville Records at the time.  My Dying Bride has had significant commercial success, and have been quite prolific in their more than twenty year career, releasing eleven studio albums, alongside multiple compilations, live albums, video's and EP's.
