PARADISE LOST Unveil Cover Artwork For Forthcoming Album

PARADISE LOST reveals cover artwork for new album, ‘The Plague Within

Returning with opus number fourteen, The Plague Within (set to be released June 1st in Europe, June 2nd in North America), PARADISE LOST has once again refined the chemical equation to their sonic alchemy with the kind of creative invincibility few can afford. It’s a collection of songs that will surprise even the most seasoned of fans in its ambition: a monochrome miasma of morbidly uplifting anthems and heart-aching melancholia. Theirs is a pain born of the human condition itself as our fragile minds struggle to cope in a world overrun by demons…

Produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, ULVER, CATHEDRAL) at London’s Orgone Studios, the frostbitten riffs thunder beneath the bittersweet euphoria of Nick’s vocals, drifting between rich melodic soars and icy snarls. It’s an organic body of work that confronts the trials and tribulations of struggling alone in darkness, but also one that treads incredibly exciting and genuinely “new” sonic ground in the process.
The cover artwork was created by the polish artist, illustrator and architect Zbigniew M. Bielak, best known in the musical realm for his record cover illustrations, which among others include meticulously handcrafted artworks of WATAIN, GHOST and ENTOMBED A.D. albums. Zbigniew comments:

“Since their late 80’s inception, through somber abrasiveness of their debut and harrowing tristesse of groundbreaking ‘Gothic’, the unparalleled icons of gloom, PARADISE LOST grew deep into all things murky and dreadful in modern music. Let alone Duncan Fergado’s artwork for their ‘Lost Paradise’ debut remains one of my fave covers, so having heard that with ‘The Plague Within’ the band harks back to days of old, was – to say the least – a thrilling incentive to pick up the commission.
It was also a rare joy to see how preliminarily calm and reflective Arcimboldian artwork, kept becoming ever darker and more sinister past each of  Nick’s and Greg’s scrutinies, to finally become what one can see on the actual cover. A portrait of hopeless decrepitude of mental illness  – which is what ‘The Plague Within’ deals with thematically – where the tormented Sisyphus struggles to push his burden back up the slippery walls of a long frozen illusion.”

All-Star Old School Metal Unit, MOTOR SISTER Hits Billboard Chart

Motor Sister “Ride” debuts on Billboard Charts!
MOTOR SISTER‘s “Ride” has debuted on the Billboard charts after its first week of release. The album cracked the top 10 with the #9 position on the Billboard New Artist (Heatseekers) chart. Additional chart numbers have been listed below!

#12 Debut @ Billboard Hard Music Albums
#40 Debut @ Billboard Rock Albums
#27 Debut @ Billboard Independent Albums
#163 Debut @ Billboard Top 200 Albums (current)

Recently, the band’s brand new video for “A Hole” was debuted on Billboard.com. Watch the clip now HERE.

MOTOR SISTER is a group of musicians whose collective musical pedigrees speak for themselves. Mother Superior founder, guitarist, and vocalist Jim Wilson fronts the band, with Anthrax’s Scott Ian on guitar, Pearl Aday on backing vocals, Joey Vera on bass, and John Tempesta on drums.

The group was originally assembled to jam for Scott Ian’s fiftieth birthday party. Thanks to Scott’s wife Pearl Aday, who has been working on her solo career with Mother Superior front man Jim Wilson for years, all it took was a quick phone call and the stage was literally set for Scott’s dream gig. “I wanted to cherry-pick a set list of my favorite Mother Superior songs and get these guys together and have the concert at my house,” Ian says of the event that eventually led to an album.

[Mother Superior] frontman Jim [Wilson] was totally into the idea. Pearl was a huge Mother Superior fan from way back and was in. I asked my good friends Joey Vera (Fates Warning, Armored Saint) and John Tempesta (White Zombie, Testament) to be a part of it because I knew they were both big fans as well and with no hesitation they said, ‘We’re in.’

Wilson, too, was stoked by the opportunity to dust off some songs he hadn’t played since his LA rock trio broke up in the early 2000’s after releasing eight albums and playing as Henry Rollins’ backing band. “I definitely didn’t need any arm-twisting,” he says. “I was totally flattered and thought it was a great idea. I figured it would be fun and it was a great opportunity for a new chapter to be established in order to move forward.

The recordings from those two days are what became to be known as MOTOR SISTER‘s Ride. The first single from those sessions, “This Song Reminds Me of You,” is available for to stream, along with a featurette video on the formation of the band and the process behind the record, at metalblade.com/motorsister.

Ride was released March 10th in North America on Metal Blade Records. The album is available now at http://www.metalblade.com/motorsister.

In support of the project MOTOR SISTER played a show a in Brooklyn, NY earlier this month, along with two special shows March 11th at The Whisky in Los Angeles and March 12th at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, CA.
