Lost Inside - Mourning wept beside me

Review by Aaron Sullivan.

From the sunny city of San Diego, California comes the Depressive Black Metal band Lost Inside.

Like the genre prescribes the concentration is not on speed or virtuosity but on mood. HEAVY on mood. But unlike many other DSBM bands the production is clean, with each instrument heard clearly in the mix. Vocals are standard fare for this sort of music, but mixed well and never overbearing. Guitars lines float above the slow deliberate drumming. And no matter how depressing it gets those guitars give you a feeling of moving towards something positive. As if there may just be light at the end of the beautiful depressive tunnel. That this album is the catharsis for not only the band, but also for its listeners.
