In life, people grow and evolve or they stand still and perish. Greek, Athens-based Opened Paradise are no exception to this rule. They have always done things differently and this time they have gone more extreme for the genre, making way for a more metallic approach in their well known gothic cosmos. This was done with countless hours spent in a new studio, working in the hardest and darkest times for musicians. Despite the quarantine and curfews the band reinvented their sound and with a new producer, they recorded their eagerly expected third full length album, which will please all true fans of CLASSIC Gothic AND a larger, new following! “Eclipse” was recorded, mixed and mastered by George Emmanuel at "Pentagram Studio" in Athens, Greece and is a more than worthy successor to the absolute gothic classic 'Occult' (2004) and the stunning comeback album 'Buried in Rain' (2016) - two albums that are now considered the crème de la crème of 'TRUE Goth' - worldwide!
