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



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.[2] 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, gave the EP 9/10 and describes the style as "modern, artistic, and fast dark metal."[3]

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.
