A band that has sold tens of thousands of albums and may boast millions of plays of their songs on the internet like A LIFE ONCE LOST could easily try to take the easy option and repeat their successful formula. Yet this lack of creativity is usually just a recipe for losing the interest of followers, while not gaining new ones. With sixth album “Ecstatic Trance”, the American band founded in Philadelphia during the year 1999 dare to take a giant step in their continuous evolution. This leads A LIFE ONCE LOST out of yesterday’s Metalcore box into a new disturbing vision of sinister coldness founded on huge, jagged riffs and churning, syncopated rhythms, which are contrasted by emotive guitars, explosive vocals and capturing melodies. A LIFE ONCE LOST founders Doug Sabolick and Bob Meadows fuse their influences ranging from KILLING JOKE to KING CRIMSON and KRAFTWERK into stunning organic soundscapes. Having performed alongside such acts like CONVERGE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, HIGH ON FIRE and JOB FOR A COWBOY among others, A LIFE ONCE LOST are now ready to conquer the world with this “Ecstatic Trance”!
