Filmed in September 2014, vocalist Nick Holmes states: "We have recorded elements of orchestration many times in the studio over the last two decades, as many of our songs lend themselves well to classical arrangement. However, we have never before had the chance to play with a real orchestra in a live situation, so it was very exciting to have the opportunity to play with the Plovdiv Philharmonic and doing that in such a prestigious location as the Roman theatre."
The epic performance was orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan, who has previously given the classical treatment to works by Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, Nirvana, Judas Priest and many more as well as collaborating with Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) and other prestigious soloists. Symphony For The Lost presents classic and current Paradise Lost songs in an astonishing musical fashion, alongside an impressive visual setting within the captivating atmosphere of The Ancient Roman Theatre of Philippopolis in Plovdiv.
From "Gothic" over "Joys Of Emptiness" to "Soul Courageous", "Last Regret" or "Victim Of The Past", Symphony For The Lost spans the entire facets of the unique Paradise Lost sound, yet expands their trademark doom 'n' gloom with a classical dimension. Mandatory for any Paradise Lost fan. Watch the trailer here - https://youtu.be/vkfUj-ig5Uc
