Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Q&A With Inherently Lost

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have a Q&A with Inherently Lost vocalist Mark Moats.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

MOATS: The story of Inherently Lost begins as a side project somewhere around 2017-2018. Bringing together musicians not only with different influences but allowing the individual influences to be heard in the music. Ranging from symphonic metal, industrial, melodic death metal, black metal, doom, nu-metal, alternative, rock, hardcore, progressive metal, and everything in between.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

MOATS: Cradle Of Filth, Fear Factory, Mötley Crüe, Static-X, Kataklysm, Black Sabbath, Fallujah, Epica, Nightwish, Eluveitie, Vision Of Disorder, Bleeding Through, Heaven Shall Burn, Within Temptation, Evanescence, Suffocation, Dimmu Borgir, SepticFlesh, Lacuna Coil, Pink Floyd, etc.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

MOATS: Our single “Unraveling Sanity” released last week on all streaming platforms accompanied by a Lyric Video on Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram. This song is pretty different from the songs we wrote before. Has some symphonic metal, industrial, deathcore, blackmetal, numetal type sounds. The best way I could describe it is IndustrialCore. If you are tired of carbon copy “scene” bands, then you’ll enjoy “Unraveling Sanity.”

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

MOATS: Visually we recently upgraded our live shows with not one but two almost nude little people in full body corpse paint jamming tribal beats on a couple floor toms. Sonically “Inherently Lost” takes the listener on a journey of apocalyptic visions as well as some dark personal truths of mental health and life experiences.

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?

MOATS: Hopefully we can squeeze out another album or two and tour regionally.
