Paralysed Age are a gothic rock and darkwave-band from Northern Germany who were founded in 1991. The music of Paralysed Age clearly has influences from the post-punk and new wave era. Marked by this style, influenced by a lot of other genres like folk and synthpop, Paralysed Age are searching for their own path to modern gothic wave, a sound with a morbid and melancholic character. Their songs often deal with vampires, bats and other "creatures of the night". Descriptions of fears and nightmares, but also resumes of the night with dreams and hopes are the lyrical path of Paralysed Age.
