Lost World Order
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: 24 February, 2012
Playing time: 55:09

LOST WORLD ORDER started to play in 1991 under the name SPECTRE DRACON and in 2007 they changed their name. This German formation has fewer changes in its line up and in its style than most metal bands.


“Parasites” is a continuation of “Lost World Trilogy” which started with “Marauders” (2009). This is an apocalyptic picture of the world after WWII with lots of analogies in our contemporary society.


The main thread in the music clothes of this vision is thrash metal. Although the band is united, its members participated and are still taking part in other projects mostly in experimental black metal bands. Death metal influences could be also found. The music and the singing of McZ are influenced mainly by the late KREATOR. The elusive thing stalking in the album is somewhat aspiration for experiments which adds something modern in the sound. The moderated melodies and the non-traditional rhythms make the songs individual.


The obstacle LOST WORLD ORDER not to become phenomena is the accumulation of quotes and influences. The complex melting of elements does not leave place for creative inspiration. The wide intention of the concept is suffocated by technical precision. In the search of own style the band goes in a direction of combining already heard elements. As if the non-focused ability of combinations of early DEW-SCENTED has met the repeating experiments from the last albums of KREATOR.


On the other hand we can see the persistency in the work of the band. Their fans will be pleased. The strong line in the development of the quartet continues and we expect its progress.
