Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us is the twelfth studio album by British gothic metal band Paradise Lost, released through Century Media in September 2009. The album cover is based upon the Danse Macabre – "The Abbot" woodcut, first published in 1538. The band had no drummer at the time of recording of this album, so with help of the Swede, Jens Bogren, he recommended the band another fellow Swede, Peter Damin. Damin is the fifth drummer for the band, although he was a nonofficial member, meaning his rank doesn't count as much as he was hired only for the recording for this album. This album also marks the band's first use of seven string guitars.
