Lost Our Fears is an Indonesian metalcore act from Blitar, East Java. Formed in 2014 on the ashes of the members’ previous band Morrgoth. The story can be traced back to 2005 when Davia Andrian and his junior high school mate Yulis Efendi forming a black metal band named Morrgoth.
They recruited another high school fellows to complete the initial line up. The newly established Morrgoth’s original members consisted of Davia Andrian (bass), Yuli (vocals), Arwan (guitars), Franky J. Corputty (keyboards), Verry Kristiandy (guitars) and Basoffi Lofa (drums).
Morrgoth started as a cover band and played musics of Craddle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir.
2011 saw an immense change of the band’s music direction. Morrgoth began to play progressive metal music and covered music of Dream Theater. This new music concept forced Yulis Effendi to leave Morrgoth. He then worked as an artist.
Davia Andrian and Franky Corputty switched positions after Yuli’s departure. Davian became the band’s frontman and Franky took the role of bass player. Franky was previously known as an awarded bass player in Blitar, winning some best player accolades from local band competitions with his other projects.
The new Morrgoth then entered Mr. Studios Blitar to record their first single You Must Killed by My Hands.
With this single, Morrgoth joined the prestige Hard Rock Rising 2012 and entered final in Bali. They lost to Superman is Dead. Morrgoth then prepared materials for debut EP project.
In the same year, the band organized a birthday gig to celebrate their 7th anniversary. The gig was titled “Distortion Force: 7th Anniversary of Morrgoth”.
In the eve of EP debut recording session, Arwan and Basoffi Lofa left Morrgoth. The band recruited drummer Tria Aryanto and Undefeated Fighters Bring Fearlessly’s guitarist Verry Kristiandy to fill the vacant positions. Another guitarist Rizky Kurniawan joined the band later.
With this formation, the band released single The Werewolf in 2013, recorded at Celestial Sphere Studios, Surabaya.
The band once again joined a national band competition Kickchick Indienation # 3 in 2013, held by Kickchick Cloth. They were voted as the top 5 bands with the highest vote.
In 2014, the band released their sophomore single Dying Indonesia, from their previous work at Celestial Sphere Studio, Surabaya.
On September 9, 2014 the band decided to change their musical concept once again. This time, they picked metalcore as their music. The band dropped black-metal-esque Morrgoth and picked a new “metalcore” name Lost Our Fears.
