Special Feature
Best of 2016
It's time to recap the best of 2016 and do a small review of another great year of music. After a rough start to the year with the demise of Live365 we were able to regroup and find our place broadcasting with Radionomy. We ended the year on a high note with our radio show doing better than we've ever done before. We also have a great year with so many artists releasing great music. We had some legends come back with new releases as well as many bands that are staple and active in the scene. On top of these great releases we were introduced to many new groups that have quickly become favorites here. In addition to our own success we love to hear the success of these great artists. Again we thank everyone for reading, sharing and listening and for all the positive feedback that we receive from all over the world. We hope that we're able to introduce you to some great new music that you can enjoy and help these wonderfully talented artists get the word out about their great music. We look forward to another great year in 2017.

Long Live Gothic Paradise Radio!!
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.
