Review: Lost Society – Fast Loud Death

I’ve just started contributing to Rock’n’Reel Reviews, which is pretty exciting. My first review introduced me to an up-and-coming young thrash band from Finland called Lost Society. They’re a lot of fun! I couldn’t have asked for a better first album to listen to on behalf of the site.

You can read the full Fast Loud Death review here.

Personal Score: 4/5

Some of Hollywood’s most powerful final scenes are also some of the most emotionally unsettling.

What are yours? Read the rest on the Guardian Film Blog.
