Ilosaarirock Festival 12th – 14th July 2013

Lost Society

Lost Society

This is heavy! A metal bomb went off in Jyväskylä earlier this year, bringing joy and colour to the Finnish metal scene. The twentysomethings clad in denim waistcoats that make Lost Society released their debut album Fast Loud Death, presenting an orchestra that plays authentic old-school trash metal with energy and skill levels kicked up high. You could not help but smile; we haven't seen anything like this since Stone!

Trash legends from Kreator's Mille to Sepultura's Kisser have praised Lost Society, and for a reason. The band exudes the same unforced joy of playing that makes Kill 'Em All Metallica's greatest record. It is now time to dig out the battle jackets from the back of the closet and claim a spot from the front row as Lost Society marches on stage. Time to relive the heydays of 1986!
