With the release of Paradise Lost’s ‘ICON 30‘ less than a month away, the gothic metal legends have now shared the re-recording of ‘Embers Fire’.

Nick Holmes comments: “Embers Fire was good fun to record again, it’s been a staple in the live set since it was released. The intro was even used to advertise Clarion luxury car HiFi in German cinemas. We each received a car stereo which at that point was probably worth more than our actual cars. Costin has done a really good job on the video, we hope you enjoy it!”

Listen to ‘Embers Fire’ –

To celebrate its 30th anniversary the band previously announced the release of a re-recording of their 1993 masterpiece ‘Icon’. 

The boys in 1993

Released on the 1st December on double vinyl, CD and digitally, the now titled ‘Icon 30‘ has been totally re-recorded by the band with them once again working with long-time collaborator and producer Jaime Gomez Arellano. The band re-recorded the vocals and drums for ‘Icon 30′ at his new studio Arda Recorders in Porto, Portugal. The rest of the album was completed at Greg Mackintosh’s Black Planet Studios. ‘Icon 30′ also features brand new artwork created by Scott Robinson ( and new liner notes from Kerrang’s Nick Ruskell.

Nick Holmes previously explained why the album was re-recorded and features new artwork, “Our specific record deal around the time we signed for the “Icon” album meant we would never actually own the rights to our music or artwork, so going forward, to reissue the album ourselves for the 30th anniversary, it was necessary to re-record and completely re-do the album cover.”

Paradise Lost will also embark on their Embers of Europe Tour in December this year. Special guests for the UK dates in London and Bradford are fellow West Yorkshire doom pioneers My Dying Bride. 

Icon 30′ can be pre-ordered now. Exclusive double green marble vinyl, CD, ticket and t-shirt bundles are also available –
