CD review PARADISE LOST ‘Believe in Nothing’ – re-issue

(8/10) A few months ago, Nuclear Blast re-issued Paradise Lost’s ‘Host’ album. The next re-worked album that hits the shelves for a second time is ‘Believe in Nothing’, originally released in 2001. As with the predecessor, the album reflects the band’s flirt with gothic rock and metal, which also includes electronica. It’s a continuation of ‘Host’ and gave the band some chart entires.

However, the band wasn’t really happy with production and artwork of their eighth album and the re-issue provided an opportunity to adjust things. ‘Believe in Nothing’ was entirely remixed and remastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano, with a new cover artwork that was developed by Branca Studio. 

The result of all the effort is an album that still shows the band in a transformation period. I personally think, that records of those days are underrated and it’s a re-release like ‘Believe in Nothing’ that shows the dynamic and forcefulness of Paradise Lost in this era. Tracks like ‘Divided’ and ‘Mouth’ are dark beauties that unfold their entire potential much better on this new re-release. This album is worth to be checked-out  eventhough you might own the original version.
