*Again* for IRON MAIDEN in 2023!

100% Glam, 80’s, Dark & Metal – ‘Blood & Glitter’ is 100% LORD OF THE LOST!

German genre-fusing visionaries LORD OF THE LOST are ending 2022 with a big surprise – releasing their eighth studio album, ‘Blood & Glitter’, virtually overnight on December 30 via Napalm Records. After the great success of their last album, ‘JUDAS’ (#2 Official German Album Charts), and supporting metal icons Iron Maiden on both their most recent and upcoming tours, the band is ready to turn the page to the next chapter.

On ‘Blood & Glitter’, the band fully embraces their deeply-rooted love for 70s glam rock visuals and the sound of the 80s. Underlined by electronic, goth and new wave musical offshoots, the German visionaries get straight to the point with their modern metal elements.

Chris Harms on the album release:

“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.”

When conjuring the concept of ‘Blood & Glitter’, the band was inspired by the eponymous work of legendary music photographer Mick Rock, known for taking a large majority of the most famous photos of musicians in the 70s glam rock era.

LORD OF THE LOST visually immerse themselves in the lifestyle of that era and combine it with the new wave and pop sound of the 80s, building on their own familiar dark metal foundation. The result: a glamorous party with critical and direct messages.

Contrasts run like a thread throughout the album, once again proving different in comparison to their previous work. In addition to Chameleon Studios in Hamburg, ‘Blood & Glitter’ was produced and recorded at the Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki. The album goes hard all the way from start to finish – thus completely bypassing ballads.

The hard-hitting dance floor track “Leave Your Hate In The Comments” makes a strong statement by addressing the increasing hate culture in social media. Furthermore, the eighth studio album features a variety of very special guests such as Heaven Shall Burn singer Marcus Bischoff on “The Future Of A Past Life”, Andy LaPlegua of Combichrist on “Reset The Preset” and Subway To Sally’s Ally Storch on violin for “Save Our Souls”.

Wrapping up the record with “One Last Song”, Chris Harms states on the track: “I was wondering what song I would want to sing last before I die and realized that song didn’t exist yet. So here it is. Probably the most important song I’ve ever written.”

A bonus track, a remarkable cover of Roxette’s “The Look”, features none other than German 90s popstar Blümchen as a duet partner. The band once again goes its own way and releases, without much advance, an album that defies all clichés, prejudices, genre norms and conventions, and makes strong statements in terms of content!

So to say: ‘Blood & Glitter’ is 100% LORD OF THE LOST.
