Believe in Nothing is the eighth full-length studio album by the British band Paradise Lost, mastered at Skyline Studios, Düsseldorf and mixed at Horus Sound Studios, Hanover between August–September 2000.

Release and Singles


The release for the album was postponed with the first release date being 18 September 2000,[1] before settling to its current date.[2] The band released commented on the reason for the delay stating:


There is one song that was written called "Leave This Alone", recorded during the album's studio sessions, but it did not end up being on this album nor the reissues. Instead, it was released on the "Fader" single. The song "Mouth" was remixed and ended up on the "Mouth" single. Both singles have music videos.

Style, Reception and Album Artwork

Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[3]

It is one of the last albums in the much lighter sound the band has been doing since One Second and that may have been contributed when composer Gregor Mackintosh stated that "doesn't really exist for him", as it was an album in which the band was out of creative control; the album went under strict instructions from the label. Mackintosh has also said that he feels some songs, such as "World Pretending", deserved a better sound and production.[4] There was more negativity of the album when the band's vocalist Nick Holmes was asked by fans of a Q&A session about in general how does the band choose who does the album artwork, Holmes stated "Don’t ask me about the BIN cover, I think we (the band) had our drinks spiked that day!"[5]

In 2007, vocalist, Nick Holmes commented again into to the details of the album stating:
