I Paradise Lost hanno rivelato artwork e data d’uscita del nuovo album Medusa, che vedrà la luce l’1 settembre per Nuclear Blast Records. Così ha commentato la news il chitarrista Greg Mackintosh:
“Whilst we were writing Medusa and realising what the new songs were becoming, we had to find an artist to reflect this direction. After searching around for a while, I found Branca Studios. They have a keen eye for design and their modern take on retro artwork really fit the bill. What they have come up with is a blending of colourful yet retro styling, whilst maintaining the classic Paradise Lost feel.”
Queste invece le parole del cantante Nick Holmes:
“I was intrigued about a greater meaning and thinking more along the lines of what Medusa represents metaphorically. Medusa as a title works in many ways. From a nihilist perspective, when I read the description of ‘medusa’ on the wikipedia page: ‘Attempts to avoid looking into Medusa’s eyes represents avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless’ – the title was pretty much in the bag!”
