Founded in 2007 by Chris Harms, over the past 10 years Hamburg’s Lord of the Lost have become one of the most well-established and successful acts on the international dark metal scene. The band’s sound has always been a heavy fusion of diverse dark genres, never ceasing to evolve, constantly reinventing themselves and their music.

Features big melodies, overwhelming aggressive and real passion, the four-piece fronted by Chris Harms’ and his impressive vocal range moves from incredibly clean and clear voice to brutal death growls and wild screams with ease.

Lord of the Lost are difficult to compare to other iconic acts on the metal scene having managed to position themselves and their unique sound to create a fusion of musical extremes. Memorable ballads are blended with dark metal screams, with no fear of exploration in their symphonic, industrial metal and heavy rock sounds shaking the audience to their core. This is certainly the case at their London date, with the first minute of their show.

With their relentless energy on stage from the first notes of Drag me to Hell through to older tunes like Die Tomorrow, Six Feet Underground, the wonderfully deep In Silence and Miss Machine, Lord of the Lost brought a night of unforgettable sexy rock ‘n’ roll. Receiving a seemingly endless applause from an audience totally absorbed and empowered by their sound.

Lord of the Lost have just signed a contract with one of the world’s most famous metal labels Napalm Records and will release a brand new acoustic and ensemble album titled Swan Songs II’ in the Fall of 2017, followed by a an ensemble album release tour.

Their London gig has been one of the most powerful metal shows I have been lucky enough to watch and shoot this year and I’m looking forward to hitting the pit again when they return with their new, undoubtedly empowered and heartfelt material.
