ALBUM: LostAlone – “Shapes Of Screams”

Shapes-Of-ScreamsI think I have found my new favourite band. For those of you who haven’t heard of LostAlone, they are a Derby based 3 piece with a jaw dropping stadium sound. They’ve supported everyone from The Darkness to Paramore. I hadn’t heard much of the band till now and I absolutely love their new album “Shapes Of Screams”. I was surprised to discover there are only 3 members in the band. The sound these guys produce is very unique and something that was crafted for arenas and stadiums all over the world.

“Crusaders” is the first track on the album. It’s an interesting introduction to the LostAlone sound. It’s a mash-up of different rock styles all in one track. ‘The Bells!, The Bells!!’ follows – a really upbeat song with a great thudding bass line. As well as being one of the singles from the album, it’s also one of the stand out tracks on the release. The guitar and bass merge effortlessly to create a cool phased sound. Another highlight from the album is ‘Scarlet Letter Rhymes’. It reinforces the LostAlone hard-rock sound. Steven Battelle’s vocals shine through on this track.

If I have one bone to pick with “Shapes Of Screams”, it’s that I found ‘Hostages’ and ‘Sombre Party’ to have a similar vibe and sound. Other than that it’s a tight album that will take LostAlone to the next level. Go buy it now!
