Welcome to my new lesson in the style of Paradise Lost, a Gothic metal band formed in 1988 in Halifax, England and are considered by some to be one of the pioneers of the death/doom genre and of the Gothic metal genre. This lesson is based on the backing track used for this collaboration: Paradise Lost Collab.
Their style has been evolving and transforming along the years. They started with albums that defined the sound of doom/death styles but with the pass of years they added more and more synth pop influences making them sound close to Depeche Mode in some albums. In the recent years they decided to get back to their early doom/death sound.
In this lesson I've decided to cover their most heavy side since it's the one that includes the most interesting guitar works and riffs. This lesson is based in a slow groove, dark riffs and progressions based on their albums most acclaimed by old school fans.
Tonality, Chord Progression & Scales:
Their music always had that "sad" and "dark" vibe which is generated with the use of minor tonalities. The two most used minor tonalities in metal, and even more in this genre are Aeolian and Phrygian, however you can also find the use of harmonic minor (and its modes) and sometimes even Locrian mode (the ugliest!). This lesson is in D minor tonality (aeolian) and it only includes one "guest" chord that appear in the bridge (D major). If you check tabs, I don't play D major, I play D5, but there are some string arrangements there and the major third of D sounds completing the chord as major.
This lesson is perfect for beginners that want to get into rhythm metal. Here we will use power chords, single string riffing, vibrato, slides and strumming.
I used LePoin plugins to create the guitar tone. These are free amp emulators that are extremely recommended. The cabinet used for this guitar tone is HyBrit which is a Marshall amp emulation and before it a tube screamer emulation. Check out the settings:
