 A Life Once Lost

Philadelphia pounders A Life Once Lost, hit the road this March as main support to Himsa. They will step in for The Agony Scene who had to pull out.
A Life Once Lost – ‘Iron Gag’ is out now through Ferret Music

The follow-up to the band’s 2005 release “Hunter”, “IRON GAG” delivers a massive wallop of scorched-out, supercharged rock. Supremely well-paced, the release exhibits the sound of a band injecting a brazen swagger into its wide musical palette. The music dovetails its blend of raw-power metal and fuzz-tripping rock, combining each in various permutations: the rock coming to the forefront in the songs ‘Firewater Joyride’ and the crunching ‘Detest’; the more deliberate side of the band emerging in the bruising ‘Worship’ and the snide, slow-boil of ‘THE WANDERER’.  Like a shark, this band can only go forwards and the deeper reaches of “IRON GAG” are very clearly the sound ofA LIFE ONCE LOST finding new waters in which to hunt.

Known for flattening clubs with its firepower, ALOL have captured the intensity of its live show on this release, the ever-mutating quintet merging continued artistic growth with an intense, wizened roar. The album was self-produced by the band and mastered at West West Side Music by the venerable Alan Douches.
