At The House of Blues

A Life Once Lost has been enjoying a successful run of touring as their recent release Hunter has been gaining popularity, getting rave reviews in the metal magazines as a great record.

Supporting As I Lay Dying along with Norma Jean and Madball, the five guys in ALOL are raising the bar for what’s to come in their genre. There are lots of bands with a European/Hardcore/Metalcore sound that could just go away as far as many are concerned because of their similar sounding guitar duos and raspy-throated vocals. A Life Once Lost is fresh and explosive in its sound and the way the guys attack the live stage.

Their Anaheim House of Blues show was a testimony to all who witnessed it that this band is committed to playing at high volume and a high standard of musicianship. They poured it on all the way through their set. I wondered how the guys calm down after a set like that. And how do the other veteran bands, including the headliner As I Lay Dying follow an act like A Life Once Lost?

(A big attaboy goes out to our friend Jason at TheGauntlet.com, who was shooting photos next to me on this night during the third song of As I Lay Dying’s set, when a guy launched himself over the wall, breaking three of Jason’s ribs and his sternum. He’s fine now and ready to go take more photos and abuse .Now how fuckin’metal is that?)

A Life Once Lost is:

Doug Sabolick - Guitar, Robert Carpenter - Guitar, Justin Graves - Drums, Nick Frasca- Bass, Bob Meadows – Vocals
