According to the press information from the record label, Lost Society should be on their best way to become Thrash Metal gods. This is hard to believe, as, for this to happen, they have to ´dethrone and uncrown´ Teutonic deities like Kreator and Testament. And, to say it right from the start, the four Finish guys, of course, are not able to conquer this stronghold. The band does have its strengths: They know how to play their instruments and they know how to capture energy on a recording. But they also have weaknesses: I couldn´t hear any well-done chorus on the entire album and some dynamics was missing, too. If you are always playing at high speed, it doesn´t necessarily make your music brutal but, more likely, it makes your music monotonous. Kreator demonstrated how it can be done better – just listen to their last album “Phantom Antichrist”: Sometimes you have to slow it down a bit, just to gather your strength for the next punch. Anyway, this band deserves a chance because they definitely are not bad. But, as we all know, it´s a long way to the top if you wanna… Thrash!
