Hugely influential in various metal subgenres. As a member of the Peaceville Three with Anathema and My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost helped invent Death/Doom metal and gothic metal (and was the first of the three to form). Their use of female vocals inspired The Gathering to adapt female vocals in gothic metal, an element that would later become a staple of the genre. Paradise Lost was also a huge influence on Within Temptation, thus having a significant influence on symphonic metal and European alt-metal in general.
