PARADISE LOST

The Band That Started It All. Fathers of gothic doom. Too bad their path to stardom (ironically) ended ubruptly in an inconvincing jelly of Depeche Mode-like radio hits. So, on the one hand, you can't live without it (well, that really depends on the person - I've lived for years now without a single listen to Metallica and feel perfectly sane), on the other hand, just the 91-95 albums provide the guaranteed satisfaction.
