Årets beste utgivelser 2021

2021 var et kjedelig år for oss alle på mange måter, men på platefronten sto det ikke tilbake for året før. Hele 310 utgivelser fikk plass på Jernverkets lytterliste.

Denne gangen var det få stemmer som skilte de tre øverste plassene, men førstepremien ble til slutt kapret av Djevel og deres “Tanker som rir natten”, utgitt på Aftermath Records. Ciekals & co må ha truffet en nerve hos publikum, for de stakk også av med topplasseringen i 2019. Gratulerer!

Paradise Lost

Paradise Losts “Obsidian” ble kåret til fjorårets fjerde beste album av Jernverkets lyttere. Jeg dukket ned i arkivet for å finne frem et Paradise Lost-intervju jeg visstnok hadde gjort på Inferno en gang. Det var derimot ikke jeg som hadde pratet med vokalist Nick Holmes. I perioden 2008-2010 samarbeidet jeg ofte med magasinene Eternal Terror og Imhotep. Vi delte intervjuene mellom oss og lånte innhold fra hverandre. Derfor er det Imhoteps Paul Kearns du hører snakke med Holmes her.

Intervjuet er fra 2009, så her snakkes det om overgangen til Century Media, gjenutgivelsen av “Gothic”, ny trommis, det å være vegetarianer på USA-turné i 1993, ølpriser i Norge samt den da planlagte plata “Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us”.

Foruten utgivelsen av “Obsidian” er Paradise Lost også aktuelle med 25-årsjubileumet for bautaen “Draconian Times”. 2021 markerer også 30-årsjubileet for vel så kjente “Gothic”.

Paradise Lost har ikke laget noen spilleliste, men du kan høre andre bands favorittlåter ved å følge Jernverket på Spotify.
