Before today, I was unfamiliar with Finnish thrash act Lost Society.
Now that they’ve signed with Nuclear Blast, I will have to change that.
The label issued a press release on the signing today.
“Thrash is not dead — and the youngsters of Lost Society are living proof of it! Founded early in 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 soon to become known as one of the most energetic newcomers Scandinavia had seen in years.”
“After numerous gigs around Finland, earning themselves great feedback for their extraordinarily strong stage presence, Lost Society decided to take part in the world-renowned GBOB (Global Battle Of the Bands). After they had won the preliminary decision round in their hometown, they were invited to the finals held in Helsinki, where they prevailed against 13 contestants and emerged victorious.”
Seems the band’s already recorded its debut album at the famous Sonic Pump Studios together with producer Nino Laurenne.
The record is scheduled for a release on Nuclear Blast in spring 2013.
