Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost on The MetalSucks Podcast #207, with Special Guests Axl Rosenberg and Emperor Rhombus!
Nick Holmes of Paradise Lost is our guest this week. We talk about the band’s new record Medusa, the challenge of assembling a live set list after 15 records, the addition of a 23-year-old drummer to such an established act, how to shock people with music in modern times, how Nick’s kids and their generation view music as disposable and why Paradise Lost will never make a flamenco album.
Co-authors Axl Rosenberg and Emperor Rhombus discuss their new book Hellraisers in part one of a two part interview. They discuss the origins of the book, the metal sub-genre they did not want to write about, the greatness of Cinderella behind the makeup and their choice for the most underrated nu-metal band, and they rightfully shame Pete for enjoying an Enuff Z’nuff tape.
There’s even a little time for Brandon, Pete, and Joz to talk about the etiquetee of tall guys at concerts and the babysitting service you must hire today!
