A LIFE ONCE LOST Homecoming Show

ALOL Bensalem Tour photo.jpg

NEW ALBUM: Ecstatic Trance out now via Season of Mist.

A LIFE ONCE LOST was formed in ’99 in the Philadelphia suburbs by Doug Sabolick (guitars) and Bob Meadows (vocals). The nascent band immediately forged a noisy, high-impact wall of sound combining dissonant, modern aggression with the hallmarks of traditional metal.

A LIFE ONCE LOST has existed on the forward edge of modern metal, where progression and innovation collide with tradition, since its inception. From day one, the path the ALOL have blazed has not only been defiant but also their own.

Ecstatic Trance was recorded at Planet Red in Richmond, VA with producer Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Impending Doom).

Three years in the making, A LIFE ONCE LOST’s new album Ecstatic Trance is the product of that unwavering determination and raises their patented rhythmic attack to hypnotic new levels of precision and expression. Huge, jagged riffs and churning, syncopated rhythms are the blueprint for the emotive guitar-playing and explosive vocals of Sabolick and Meadows respectively.
