With the release of Tragic Idol on the horizon, Aaron Aedy, guitarist for Paradise Lost took a few minutes of his time to take the Oath.

Technical difficulties be damned - we almost weren't able to conduct the interview because of my resistance to adapting to our new phone system but I finally got it figured out and Aaron was nothing but cool when it came to working through the problems.

Of course, we talked about the new album, tour and the standard fare but we also talked about the band's writing process, their propensity for making disturbing videos and I asked Aaron how guitarist Gregor Mackintosh's new project Vallenfyre has affected the band.
