Special Feature
Lights That Change
We were introduced to this incredible band just over a year ago with their spellbinding track "Voices". We were able to pick up most of their released over the next little while which we featured on our airwaves and on the pages here with a review. However, with all of the material they had released, they were yet to pull together a full-length album though they had a few EPs and several singles under their belt. Finally, earlier this year we were finally presented with Byzantium. This great album features our first and favorite track "Voices" along with a nice selection of other great songs. For those longing for a step back to the peak of the 90's ethereal shoegaze genre and the birth of the Heavenly Voices collection, this band really captures those sentiments, styles and memories. While still standing on their own with their material, this is something brand new for us all to enjoy here in 2016. It is a pleasure to feature this band which has quickly become a favorite here for us at Gothic Paradise. Read the reviews and listen for yourself and jump over to bandcamp or other outlets where their music is found and purchase their entire catalog, it's well worth it.

Long Live Gothic Paradise Radio!!
For over sixteen years we have focused on trying to bring our listeners and readers the best music available. We've had our two radio shows running all this time up until about a month ago when we had to consolidate. We weren't sure we would make it but thanks to our wonderful listeners around the world we have far surpassed the minimum average total listening hours to remain active. In fact, as a radio show we are currently thriving. While we'll do a complete year in review in the next couple of months, it's worth mentioning that while this has been our hardest year in many ways, it has also been one of our best. We will keep Gothic Paradise on the air as long as we have a reasonable avenue to broadcast our music and we hope to share great music with our listeners and readers for many more years to come. Thanks again to all of our wonderful readers, listeners and of course the talented and kind artists and labels that help provide us with such great music to share! Tune in and enjoy all of our latest playlists including our New Music Mondays specials, our featured Gothic Paradise playlists, our Top 10 radio show, Flashback Fridays and Soft and Soothing Sunday Sounds.
