17, 18, 19, 19. No, that’s not today’s lottery numbers, but the age of the band members of Finland’s most promising contemporary newcomer combo. Founded early 2010 in Jyväskylä by thrash/speed metal enthusiast Samy Elbanna, the front man gathered an ensemble of passionate allies around him to establish a band that soon should become known as the most energetic up-and-comers Scandinavia had seen in years – LOST SOCIETY!
Crafted under the aegis of famous producer Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, ENSIFERUM, LORDI) in the prestigious Sonic Pump Studios (FINNTROLL, SONATA ARCTICA, OMNIUM GATHERUM), the band’s debut entitled “Fast Loud Death“ will be released via Nuclear Blast on March 15, 2013. Already in the first quarter, this record can doubtlessly be ranked among this year’s best releases of its genre!
The fantastic cover artwork was designed by no less a figure than Ed Repka (MEGADETH, DEATH, SANCTUARY, VENOM), who has once again created a true masterpiece that perfectly suits LOST SOCIETY’s music, as band leader Samy states:
“When we heard that the one and only Ed Repka would be responsible for the album art, we were thrilled, as he created some of the most killer album covers of all times! The result looks absolutely amazing and truly captures the album’s theme – a bus full of crazy people who blew it up big time!”
Maestro Ed Repka himself comments: “This was a lot of work but a fun project, since both the band and the label were great to work with and very receptive to my input. LOST SOCIETY’s comical concept of their tour bus leaving a town destroyed was cool, but to make it even more crazy, I added the pop-culture “monster in car” aspect, giving the whole image a distinct, aggressive presence. Another tongue-in-cheek metal masterpiece is born!”
“Fast Loud Death” will be available as a limited digipak, deluxe digital download via iTunes and black vinyl in gatefold, all of them incl. 2 bonus tracks. Moreover, a limited digipak + t-shirt bundle as well as a limited blue-transparent 2LP in gatefold will be exclusively available via the Nuclear Blast mail order!
