Product Description

Founded in early 2010 by thrash/speed metal enthusiast Samy Elbanna in the Finnish town of Jyväskylä, the frontman gathered an ensemble of passionate allies around him to establish a band that should soon become known as the most energetic up-and-comers the scene had seen in years. With their highly acclaimed debut album 'Fast Loud Death' released in 2013 - when the guys were still in their teens - LOST SOCIETY even caught the attention of veterans such as KREATOR and TESTAMENT. Subsequently, 2014's 'Terror Hungry' saw the band further enhancing their trademark blend of speedy boozing anthems and moshy mayhem in the vein of ANTHRAX, PANTERA and MUNICIPAL WASTE, resulting in numerous shows and festival appearances all over Europe. Enter 2016, nothing's changed - but yet everything's different. From the first second of the quartet's new record 'Braindead' , one can't help but notice that the light-hearted happy-go-lucky attitude of earlier days has made way for something deeper, darker and heavier. Not an ounce of the youthful passion we've come to love was lost, but rather channelled into what can rightfully be called LOST SOCIETY's most mature and profound effort to date. Crushing riffs, relentless bass fire and thunderous drum pounding intertwine, creating soundscapes of death and devastation, while Elbanna - with a voice ripened to fierce perfection - coughs up venomous verses of madness, torture and pain. Crafted to maximum crispness by trusted producer Nino Laurenne at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki and mastered by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers, with another masterly cover artwork by Jan Meininghaus (BOLT THROWER, SICK OF IT ALL, U.D.O.), 'Braindead' offers pieces of SLAYER-ish harshness combined with EXODUS-like coarseness and, in it's remarkable richness of gripping melodies, even borders on melodic death a la CHILDREN OF BODOM at times. But most of all, it portrays the Finns on the threshold of becoming one of the leading forces in contemporary thrash metal. If a band's third album determines whether they make it or break it, there's only one road for LOST SOCIETY from here - straight to the top!

HASH(0xa01d8288) out of 5 stars These guys are the real freaking deal 22 Feb. 2016
By Jonathan Weller - Published on Amazon.com
Finland’s metal masters Lost Society released their third studio album “Braindead” in February 2016. While many dedicated fans may see this album as a departure from the band’s previous outings, I found the album fresh and invigorating.

“Braindead” reminded me instantly of past thrashers like Metallica, Megadeth and Testament attempts to branch out and expand back in the early ‘90s. The album’s development and sound path is very reminiscent of “Countdown to Extinction,” “Metallica” and “The Ritual” by the aforementioned bands, which some may be turned off by, but I actually think this is a step in the right direction. The most noticeable difference between previous offerings and this album is the sound quality and production, but more importantly the band has incorporated more groove and rhythm into their repertoire on “Braindead.” The album still unloads a ton of metal in your face to be sure, but instead of ten songs that sound exactly alike, every song on this album sounds fresh and inspired. My favorite tracks from the album are “I Am the Antidote,” “Riot,” “PST 88” and “Hangover Activator,” but every track is all killer no filler to me.

If you like any of the bands I mentioned in this review then you’ll love Lost Society. If you feel the Black album killed Metallica and started their precipitous dissension into mediocrity, well then, you may have to give this a few spins before it grows on you. This is simply put a killer metal album for the 21st century.
HASH(0xa047ff78) out of 5 stars Pretty lame...... 23 April 2016
By Danno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Meh. Lost Society is a slower ,not in a doomier, good way, and a less thrashier band now. How a band slows up this much on only their 3rd disc is beyond me. They're not an old bunch of dudes trying to get by. This disc is not fun. It's boring. Yes, the lead guitar work is pretty awesome but the core of the songs is so mediocre that it drags you down and bums you out. I was not expecting this type of drastic change. They are heavy-ish but so what? With a vocalist so extremely raspy , it annoys, rather than make you feel psyched to be listening to some sick, thrashy, punkish, fun, tuneage. This band had me believing in the new wave of thrash bands that could keep thrash fresh, not anymore. Booooooo........
HASH(0xa01d4aec) out of 5 stars I have great respect for this band 14 Mar. 2016

I have great respect for this band. This release however did not do it for me. If you are expecting Lost Society of old, be prepared to be disappointed. I would compare it to their "Black" album. Certainly better than that release, but a bit too straightforward for my taste. The highlight of the album? The lead playing is ridiculously good. I would not recommend this cd to fans of their previous work. I was sorely disappointed.
HASH(0xa0182a8c) out of 5 stars Favorite album to date. 1 Mar. 2016
By Kelsie LeCrone - Published on Amazon.com
Fantastic third release.
Their sound has matured, moving from the very crossover-ish sound they had before, to a much more groove-thrash sound.
The new sound is still very much Lost Society, though, and there are still quite a few faster songs in the mix, paired with the slower ones, balancing out the album perfectly.
It may not be everyones cup of tea, but it's actually my favorite album of theirs to date.

Great album!!! Different from the previous two but in a good way. Sounds less punky and more like a thrash groove metal cross. I am the antidote is an instant classic. Five stars!!
