(KevinP provides the following introduction to our premiere of the new album by Poland’s Lost Soul.)
Poland’s death metal masters, Lost Soul, return with their fifth full-length album, Atlantis: The New Beginning, via Apostasy Records on October 30, 2015. Today we proudly present to you the exclusive North American stream of this new opus.
Mainman/founding member Jacek Grecki (vocals/guitar) and Damian Czajkowski (bass) return with the band’s first new material since 2009’s Immerse in Infinity. Making their recording debut with Lost Soul are Asmodeus Draco Dux (drums) and Marek Golas (guitars), who both joined in 2012.
If you like what you hear (and who are we kidding, YOU WILL), stay tuned — as on Monday, October 26, we will GET TO THE POINT in an interview with Jacek Grecki. See the links below to grab digital and physical copies of the album (vinyl will be released in February 2016).
The album was produced by Jacek Grecki. The mixing and mastering was done by Wojtek and Sławek Wiesławski at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated…). Grecki has described the album as follows:
Atlantis is damn fast, heavy, evil, dark, spacious, extremely massive and technical. It’s no doubt a full-blown, merciless metal album. We managed to structure it in a way so you can hear the evil, darkness, air and power. Speed was not our focus. While complicated parts are still there, it is a very listenable record by all means. The album is less intense than previous. You can find more slow to mid tempos. Damian and Maro did a few vocal parts. We also invited several guests, among them was Dave Suzuki, who did one solo. We have two women’s voices and a friend of ours recorded a flamenco guitar part. A few songs and interludes feature choir parts (Wroclaw Philharmonic Orchestra) – which is already like the icing on the cake. On top of that – my vocals.”
