Just started listen to Paradise Lost recently. I think I might go to the show in Gothenburg. Swallow The Sun is pretty awesome aswell.

3 consert's in Sweden, but none in Norway? That sucks.

All right... So I'm missing their gig in Utrecht due to my flight 1 day later? Sweet...

Even though I live at walking distance from Tivoli in Utrecht I am not going. Paradise Lost live have been horrendous for the past 10 years and Swallow The Sun's only interesting album has been their debut. PASS for me and I'll laugh at all those people wasting almost 30 euros on this shit tour.

LOL

The only reason I'd have personally attended would've been Swallow The Sun 'cause I actually do like their atmospheric work on the whole.

I'd go for both to be honest. Would be a nice, quiet evening and I enjoy both band's discogs for the most part.
