“Last Breath” is a five song MCD
from the band, L.O.S.T.
They formed only a couple years ago in 2004 and hail from Bucharest, Romania.
Over the five tunes and twenty-one minutes plus of darkened metal you find
a host of similarities with other bands that I hope you have encountered.
As in Paradise Lost, old Anathema, Moonspell, and old My Dying Bride mostly.
L.O.S.T. have traits akin to the dark, doomy death vibe. They aren’t
to the level of the aforementioned, but it should give them a goal. Definitely
some promising melodic death rhythms working for them. The death vocals
are awesome, but the rarely used singing vocals need improvement. They are
a little off. Production is decent, but a little polishing wouldn’t
hurt, it would make this standout a little more, and probably a few of the
tracks would gain a little power in the end. But help on the power side
has already occurred. Over the summer of 2006 L.O.S.T. had a new member
join the fold in guitarist Andrei Gângã. He was in some of
the band members’ past bands. They already have a new album ready
for this fall. So stay tuned!
