Paradise Lost will release a new live album/DVD entitled Symphony For The Lost next month. The offering was shot at Ancient Roman Theatre of Philippopolis in Bulgaria, and features the Orchestra of State Opera Plovdiv and Rodna Pesen Choir.
The performance was orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan, who has previously arranged and conducted orchestral music with 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 will be released on November 20th 2015 via the Century Media label. The band comments – “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.”
