Iconic UK metallers Paradise Lost have signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast. Band vocalist Nick Holmes commented:

“Paradise Lost’s career has run alongside Nuclear Blast Records since the label began in the late 80’s. And as huge fans of original death metal, we still have the majority of the label’s first releases from those very early days. It’s pretty incredible to see how the label has become a real force in metal music over the years, both in Europe and America and now, nearly 30 years later, in a new chapter for the band, it’s exciting for Paradise Lost to be a part of Nuclear Blast in 2017!”
