Since their foundation in 1988, 'Paradise Lost' have always developed further and inspired numerous artists with their music. They started with their debut album 'Lost Paradise' in 1990, continued with 'Gothic' in 1991 and their masterpiece 'Draconian Times' in 1995. The slightly electronic 'One Second' followed and then, the band returned to their harder side with 'In Requiem'. Last year, they published 'Tragic Idol'. To celebrate their musical influence and their 25th anniversary, a special compilation is going to be released this autumn. It's called 'Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)' and is going to be released on 18th October. The Parisian designer Valnoir created the artwork. He already worked with artists like Orphaned Land, Morbid Angel, Watain and more than 150 others. All tracks are rarities that have been published before. The new track "Loneliness Remains" and the newly recorded "Gothic 2013" and "Our Saviour 2013" are exceptions.
