Lost Society
Terror Hungry
Style: Thrash Metal
Release date: 4 April, 2014
Playing time: 53:39

It took a little longer than a year for this band hailing from Finland to release their second album. Their debut album 'Fast Loud Death' was an average thrash metal album with nothing we haven't heard before. On this second album you hear that the band has grown and matured, but their music is still far from original. The execution however is good and the average thrash metal fan will lick their fingers listening to this album.

Influences of the known eighties thrash metal bands lay on top. Just listen to the song "Lethal Pleasure" where the riff could have been borowed from the first Metallica album. It is a feast of recognition, influences of Metallica, Overkill, Exodus and Anthrax are used to play their version of the Bay Area thrash style. Galloping riffs, shredding soli, gang shouts and songs in high tempi. Add the aggressive, shouting singing style of Samy Elbanna and the puzzle falls together.

Together with bands like Fueled By Fire, Municipal Waste, Evile and Gama Bomb they form the new generation of thrash metal. This album isn't better or worse than what these other bands play, just nice music to create a mosh pit and that's about it.
