thrash metal band LOST SOCIETY unveils album details
Finland’s youngest thrash export, LOST SOCIETY, has revealed the details surrounding their upcoming debut album. The band’s debut album Fast Loud Death was crafted under the watchful eye of famous producer Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, ENSIFERUM, LORDI) at the prestigious Sonic Pump Studios (FINNTROLL, SONATA ARCTICA, OMNIUM GATHERUM). The fantastic cover artwork was designed by no less than the infamous Ed Repka (MEGADETH, DEATH, SANCTUARY, VENOM).
“When we heard that the one and only Ed Repka would be responsible for the album art, we were thrilled,” commented guitarist/vocalist Samy Elbanna. “He created some of the most killer album covers of all times! The result looks absolutely amazing and truly captures the album’s theme – a bus full of crazy people who blew it up big time!”
Commented Ed Repka: “This was a lot of work but a fun project, since both the band and the label were great to work with and very receptive to my input. LOST SOCIETY’s comical concept of their tour bus leaving a town destroyed was cool, but to make it even more crazy, I added the pop-culture ‘monster in car’ aspect, giving the whole image a distinct, aggressive presence. Another tongue-in-cheek metal masterpiece is born!”
Fast Loud Death will be available in North America both digitally and physically with two bonus tracks via Nuclear Blast on March 19.

17, 18, 19, 19. No that’s not today’s winning lottery numbers, it’s the age of the band members of Finland’s most promising new contemporary thrash combo. Founded in early 2010 in Jyväskylä by thrash/speed metal enthusiast Samy Elbanna, the front man gathered an ensemble of passionate allies around him to establish a band that soon would become known as the most energetic up-and-comers Scandinavia had seen in years – LOST SOCIETY!
