No Hope For The Lost: Just some guys getting together, having a good time, and making music….

No Hope For The Lost . The Pilgrimage

The band states, «Just some guys getting together, having a good time, and making music. For fans of bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, Periphery, Gojira, Deftones, Tesseract, Code Orange».

No Hope For The Lost is a project formed and led by musician and audio engineer Nathanael Bohnet. Ran out of Octave Studios in Medicine Hat, Alberta, No Hope For The Lost was formed as Deadlights originally in 2018. After releasing one EP and having Covid-19 cancel all plans for festival appearances and touring, Nathanael and bandmate/producer Re Mayer decided it was time to go back to the drawing board. Thus, No Hope for the Lost was born.

Combining influences of progressive metal, metal core, and various influences from science fiction to video games, No Hope for the Lost delivers a unique sound that is as heavy as it is accessible. Their new upcoming EP The Pilgrimage is centered around the classic video game Final Fantasy X, and they have re-released their old Deadlights material as a homage to their formative days, thus continuing the pattern of being influenced by various works of fiction.

Following the Covid related demise of their band Deadlights, Re Mayer (guitar/backing vocals/synth) and Nathanael Bohnet (bass/lead vocals) took the opportunity to reimagine their sound and image to create No Hope For The Lost. They created their forthcoming introductory EP entitled The Pilgrimage to give fans a taste of their entirely new sound, but left it just short enough to keep hype levels high.

Their first single Yu Yevon immediately explodes into a rhythmic groove driven by heavy guitars and bass. It is quickly followed by screamed vocals and synth-driven interludes. The chorus of the track is a key change towards an upbeat and soaring movement that descends back into the heavy rhythmic territory that glues the song together. The band explains the track in more detail:

«It is the combination of an old demo from a band both Re and Nate had their separate times in, with the new direction that they had both been imagining. It ended up becoming a heavy yet upbeat back and forth between pummeling rhythms and soaring choruses. A very verse/chorus/verse/bridge/chorus song at heart, Yu Yevon was designed to be the set opener/EP kickstarter that reintroduces us as No Hope For The Lost».

The EP as a whole is a structured listening experience that combines an atmosphere of melody and groove with a foundation of heavy rhythms and ferocious vocal patterns, all wrapped up in a Final Fantasy X theme that will surely please members of that fandom.

Groovy metal core blended with hints of prog awaits with The Pilgrimage, which is highly recommended for fans of Periphery, Meshuggah, and Deftones.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5219 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
