LORD OF THE LOST Release New Single / Video “Blood & Glitter”
German genre-fusing visionaries, Lord Of The Lost, have released a new single, “Blood & Glitter”. Check out the official video below.
Back in May, Lord Of The Lost released their EP, The Heartbeat Of The Devil, via Napalm Records. It solidified the band as visionaries unafraid to express themselves outside of the norm. Their nonconformism is undoubtedly a key point of their attraction and distinction, and their sophisticated sonic universe sets them apart from all other bands in the genre.

The new EP begins with the single version of “The Heartbeat Of The Devil”, and closes with a striking piano version of the same song. Rounding out the center of the EP are three cover versions of iconic songs: “Children Of The Damned” by Iron Maiden, who Lord Of The Lost will support on 18 dates of the band’s European tour after the release of the EP, “Judas” by Lady Gaga and “Wig In A Box” from famed rock musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch. These iconic songs are reinvented and transformed by the dark atmosphere of Lord Of The Lost’s trademark sound.
Lord Of The Lost on The Heartbeat Of The Devil: “With the pandemic and the unplanned free time – you can spontaneously record three cover versions of songs that move you at the moment. But why these three songs? ‘Judas’ by Lady Gaga should be self-explanatory due to the title overlap with our current album. ‘Children Of The Damned’ is a nod to our summer tour hosts Iron Maiden, who booked us as a support band. And ‘Wig In A Box’… well, if you don’t know the movie musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch, you should definitely change that. We saw the movie one day and one of us yelled, ‘let’s cover that song!’ – and as it always is with us, every spontaneous idea is put into action. Or at least it’s tried.”
