Det Tapte Liv is an EP by the Norwegian unblack metal band Antestor, released in 2004.

Recording[edit]

The EP contains songs recorded at Antestor's studio sessions in 2004 at Top Room Studios. The band felt that these songs did not fit into the 2005's The Forsaken full-length and were released on this EP.[3] The EP served as a taster for the upcoming album.

Det Tapte Liv includes two actual songs, "Rites of Death" and "Med Hevede Sverd", and three atmospheric piano and keyboard-based instrumental songs. The song structures are progressive and include several tempo changes. Pekka Ryhänen, reviewer of the Finnish metal site Imperiumi.net, gave the EP 9/10 and describes the style as "modern, artistic, and fast dark metal."[1]

At first, Det Tapte Liv was released in a special limited 1000 copies heavy printer box edition. The box had room for the upcoming full-length. Later, the EP was released as a regular jewel case with different cover art done by Kristian Wåhlin.

The album cover of Det Tapte Liv shows a painting of the Borgund stave church. The cover of the EP and the album art for The Forsaken together form a single landscape image.
