Lord of the Lost (GER)
Lord of the Lost is a German Gothic metal band from Hamburg. The band was created by singer and frontman Chris Harms.
The band was founded in mid-2007 by Chris Harms as a solo project. While working on the initial songs and publishing them on MySpace, Harms received a lot of positive reception and realized that he would require a full band to play them live. He recruited other musicians from his friends in the Hamburg music scene to form the band and begin working on the first album. Harms originally called the project Lord, but changed the name of the band to Lord of the Lost to avoid possible name disputes with Lordi and The Lords.
In spring 2011, the band released Sex on Legs as the first single from their second album, Antagony. The album, considered their first concept album, was released shortly thereafter. Lord of the Lost toured in support of the album with the band Mono Inc. on their Viva Hades tour.
In summer 2012, Lord of the Lost released their third album Die Tomorrow. Just before the release, the band began working on their fourth album From The Flame Into The Fire. In October 2012, Lord of the Lost opened for Letzte Instanz on their Ewig-Tour. Lord of the Lost started touring again in the spring of 2013 co-headlining on the Darkness Kills tour with Unzucht, and in September kicked off the We are the Lost tour together with Lost Area. In October 2013, Lord Of The Lost appeared as part of the Gothic Meets Klassik at the Leipzig Gewandhaus with the Zielona Gòra Symphony Orchestra.
In March 2015, Lord of the Lost released the pure acoustic album Swan Songs, which reached #34 on the GfK Entertainment Charts. The live performances for the album took place on the Out of Line Weekender in Berlin in the same month.
In 2015, Lord of the Lost released the EP Full Metal Whore. The tour for the album used the motto “Make Love Make War” and was supported by the bands Darkhaus, Eyes Shut Tight, Vlad In Tears, and Erdling. In December 2015 they released A Night To Remember – Live Acoustic In Hamburg, the DVD and live CD from the acoustic tour during the previous spring.
The first single “The Love of God” from the album Empyrean was released in May 2016. This was followed by the band’s first major European tour Make Europe Great Again (M.E.G.A.) Empyrean was published at the end of July 2016 and is the second concept album from the band.
Latest studio album “Thornstar” was released 2018.
