Canada’s Paradise has been on hiatus since 2005, but by the will of the volcanic rock gods, they have resurfaced with new music ready to blow your mind. Mixed and mastered by Kevin Jardine from Slaves On Dope, their self-titled album recently released on March 13, 2020 via Vega Musique is ready to prove to fans that they haven’t grown complacent in their absence. Featuring 10 punchy tracks, the lead single ‘Straight From Hell’ has a new high-octane video to fully embrace the smooth, catchy hard rock that they have been known for over the years. Recommend for fans of Clutch, Queens of The Stone Age, Kyuss, and Volbeat, this is a heavy blend of corrosive rock. 

Watch the video ‘Straight From Hell’ on YouTube HERE.

The band adds:

“We think we’re right in between heavy rock and metal with a stoner feel sometimes. We really tried to have different vibes throughout the record and not have the pedal to the metal on each song like the previous ones.”

Paradise‘s previous releases, 2002’s “Rock Anthropologists On The Kon Tiki Voyage” featured Mike Plant (Sword) and drum god Michel “Away” Langevin (Voivod) and follow-up record, 2005’s “Hotel” included a collaboration with Voivod’s late Denis “Piggy” D’Amour. Paradise‘s current line up is composed of Frank Kelly (guitars), Fred Kelly (bass), RL Black (vocals), Fred Crew Grrr (guitars) and Mat Hias (drums),

Since reforming, Paradise have played many impactful live shows including a tour in Cuba in 2019, where they ended up giving away all of their merchandise for free along with an Orange amp to one of the opening bands.

Paradise‘s self-titled album is available for stream and download on, and iTunes.
