Nick Holmes about ‘Ghosts’“This song tips a cap to the goth rock music that was ubiquitous when we were teenagers. Even as young Death metal fans, a lot of that old 80’s music is still very much the soundtrack of our early lives.
 Lyrically it’s about being haunted by the past and a shallow belief in something you hope will destroy the demons.

The sixteenth PARADISE LOST studio album, ‘Obsidian’ eschews its immediate predecessors’ gruesome, myopic approach in favour of a richer and more dynamic deluge of black shades. From the deceptive elegance and dual atmospheres of opener ‘Darker Thoughts’ through to the crushing, baroque doom of war-torn closer ‘Ravenghast‘, ‘Obsidian’ reveals a band in masterful control of a broad array of vital ideas. Most noticeably, the record boasts several songs that draw heavily from the much-loved, Kohl-encrusted days of ‘80s gothic rock: in particular, newly-minted PARADISE LOST anthems ‘Ghosts‘ is a guaranteed dancefloor-filler at any discerning goth nightclub.
