Host is the seventh studio album recorded by British band Paradise Lost. The singles "So Much Is Lost" and "Permanent Solution" both have music videos released. Due to an injury, Gregor Mackintosh often played keyboards instead of guitar while touring the album with his guitar technician playing his guitar parts.

The album saw the band moving further away from their previous metal sound to something more akin to a melancholy style of synthpop, a style in which vocalist, Nick Holmes commented on this album in 2007, stating:
