Lord Of The Lost Releases New Album “Blood & Glitter”: Streaming
German gothic metal band Lord Of The Lost, consisting of Chris Harms (vocals), Pi Stoffers (guitar), Class Grenayde (bass), Niklas Kahl (drums), Gared Dirge (Keyboards), released eighth studio album “Blood & Glitter” on December 30, 2022.
The album comprises 13-track, including a cover of Swedish pop duo Roxette Roxette's 1988 “The Look”, featuring guest appearances from Marcus Bischoff, Andy LaPlegua, Ally Storch, and Blümchen.
Written by Chris Harms, Rupert Keplinger, Anthony J. Brown, and Pi Stoffers. Produced by Chris Harms, Corvin Bahn and Jaani Peuhu.
On the new album, the band fully embraces their deeply-rooted love for '70s glam rock visuals and the sound of '80s and its electronic, goth and new wave musical offshoots, without abandoning relevant metal elements unlike their mythologically and theologically influenced previous albums.
The band shared, “The 5 of us and many from the LOTL team, who belong to the band exactly like this for all of us, have decided to do a lot different with BLOOD & GLITTER than before, almost everything even.”
The band recorded the album at Chameleon Studios in Hamburg and the Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki.
- The band frontman Chris Harms said of the album, “In a time when the marketing madness for each album seems to last longer and longer, when half the album – or even more – is already known six months in advance through pre-released singles, so that the high pre-release sales generate the highest possible chart result, what it should actually be about – the pure magic of hearing a new album of your favourite band for the first time – is becoming more and more lost. We want to transport this “like the old days” feeling through this surprise release! Fuck the charts, playlist pitches and 1,000 pointless reviews in advance. What matters is what an album means in the long run, not how high its 'value' is on release day.”
