I really enjoyed Lost Society's debut, Fast Loud Death, but I can't say the same for their follow up, Terror Hungry. Both albums feature the same level of Nuclear Assault-meets-early Annihilator speed and acrobatic soloing. Both are old-school Thrash Metal to the bone. What brings me up short is the vocal style on Terror Hungry. Singer Samy Elbanna has adopted a more "groove" Metal shout, similar to Phil Anselmo circa the Vulgar Display of Power/Far Beyond Driven era. I'm not saying Terror Hungry sounds like "groove," something that, when present in more than just minor amounts, turns my stomach, just that the vocals are enough of a reminder of that style that it distracted me from enjoying the rest of the quality Thrash.
If that combination sounds good to you, by all means, check out Terror Hungry. These young Finns play with a lot of fire and energy and, as I said, the solos are great fun. As for me, the similarities to Pantera in the vocals are too much. I'll take Fast Loud Death, thanks.
