This is not to say the song is bleak and dull, more that it comes with a tension; it feels full of doom and talks of "danger" and having to "run away". 'Lost Army' definitely has a touch of the apocalyptic about it, and is another example of a current wave of bands spontaneously producing music of a similar mood. DeLooze tackle the subject in a grander fashion than most. This song isn't minimalist doom-mongering, and nor is it end-times post-rock. This is a huge, slightly orchestral monster of a tune. It feels like an approaching disaster than mankind can't avoid. If we really are going through a transition and more strange natural or man-made disasters are likely to occur, then here's your soundtrack to it.
