We've got all 13 studio albums on CD to give away to mark the band's 25th anniversary and upcoming tour

Britsh heavy metallers Paradise Lost turn 25 this year. They've already marked this anniversary with a compilation, Tragic Illusion (get hold of it here), which collects together a number of their previously released rarities, within that alternative mixes and cover versions, as well as one new track, 'Loneliness Remains', and two re-recordings made especially for the record, 'Gothic 2013' and 'Our Saviour 2013'.

The album comes ahead of their Tragic Illusion tour, kicking off at the beginning of next month, taking in four dates in the UK before moving onto Europe and culminating in a set at Metal Hammer's Paradise Festival in Germany - take a look at the tour dates below and head to the band's website to get hold of tickets.
