Ansamblu vocal-instrumental melodic death metal
The band L.O.S.T. formed in March 2004, after one of the rehearsals of the band Abigail where three from the members were activating for many years (Vlad, Dragoş, George). After a short period of time, BB Hanneman, also former colleague with the other members, joined the band. From that time, the line-up was: BB Hanneman - guitars, vocals (ex Adrenaline, Cronos, Abigail, Icon of Sin, Magma), Vlad Buşcă - bass, vocals (ex Abigail, Tornado, Cronos), Dragoş Hălmagi - keyb (ex Abigail), George Angel Tudor - drums, vocals (ex Abigail, Dust). Starting with September 2006, a new member joins the band: Dorin Costea, a drummer that also played with bands like Kendo, Brainstrip and Deadeye Dick. He was eventually replaced in June 2011 by Victor Stoica (ex Dies Irae / Warganism) when a second guitar player also joined the band, Daniel Tudosie (ex Spectral), which was eventually replaced in 2013 by Victor Manescu (Armies Of Enlil, ex-Avatar).
Having a vast experience on the Romanian scene, of almost 20 years, which contained, among others, numerous festival awards, radio and tv appearances and 4 albums recorded with Abigail, Cronos, Dies Irae and Warganism, L.O.S.T. succeeded with its main objective, a fast impact on the underground scene, with excellent live shows and with a growing mass of devoted fans.
