LLNN have that same raw, vile, cold and crushingly destructive energy that I found so attractive as a teenager slowly getting involved with hardcore punk, that made me love bands like Rorschach, Groundwork, Neurosis, Absinthe, Unbroken or Breach. LLNN’s sound is so dense and overwhelming that I was surprised to learn that they are a fairly new band, formed in Copenhagen in 2014 – but the members are veterans in the local hardcore and metal scene, and have played in internationally touring bands like THE PSYCHE PROJECT. It is this experience that comes with the awareness that the true power of heaviness lies in simplicity: in reducing a musical idea to its (hard) core, to its essence, rather than overloading songs with trivial details that would only blur the mix. One of the unexpected and outstanding elements on „Loss“ are the apocalyptic wave synths, which take you on a journey back in time, back past NEUROSIS” „Souls At Zero“ era into the early 80s. „It took us 7 months to find the right synths for the vision we were after“, comments drummer Rasmus Sejersen. „My brother and I saw a lot of 80s sci-fi flicks to get into the right mood. It was a great creative period. We are very close.“ „Loss“ is available on CD and vinyl formats, including a ltd. edition on brass-coloured wax, and it’s available for streaming below!
With its intense and diverse soundscapes, LLNN‘s sound remain fresh and genuine. With “LOSS”, you’ll immediately know you’re listening to the highest caliber and quality of heavy music. Enjoy.
The band commented:
“The making of this album has been a creative joyride of watching a bunch of our favorite VHS 80s sci-fi flicks and afterwards trying to get that mood and “visual” feeling transferred into the sound of heavy and sludgy post-hardcore.
We’re huge fans of the work of John Carpenter, Brad Fiedel and Vangelis to name a few.
“Loss” is about the loss of innocence and is lyrically meant to describe the transition from a naïve idealist to a solipsist nihilist. We were raised to believe in the good nature of people, an ideal we naively still hold on to for dear life, but growing up and watching the realities of life unfold in front of you, can be a soul sucking experience. It’s about the insurmountable immovable object that is the will of man and how utterly devastating it can be to witness at times.
We hope that you will enjoy the album and that it will be as cathartic for you to listen to, as it was for us to write it.”
