Out Of Line Music
Release: 26 November 2021
Where do you start with Lord of the Lost music? First this album has many of the best songs of LotL with the always deep and brilliant vocals of Chris Harms a musical genius in my eyes. The lyrics are brilliant and the melodies are always spot on. Chris has the ability to sing, growl, even his postmen words during songs is spoken with a flow between spoken and sung.
If you are a lover of music and you want pure musical talent with amazing vocals then get this album it truly is masterclass in Dark Metal Gothic Rock, I do not believe you can pigeon hole them to one genre.
Just listen to the track Revelation 13_18 and hear the versatility of LotL.
Very rarely do I hear a track that can move me to shivers and tears but Preludium_ About Love, Death _ The Devil did exactly that. What a song it really is pure genius.-VK Mike
LORD OF THE LOST deliberately played with contrasts in 2011 with their second album, “Antagony”. The lyrically intensely autobiographical work by Chris Harms is still an important milestone for the band today. Above all, it was incredibly important “because it was damn brave for a second album. It showed from the beginning that LOTL don’t repeat themselves from album to album”, Chris sums up. They continued their metallic dark rock power but overturned the “textbook dark rock band” tag, refining their style with Gared Dirge’s nimble piano fingers. “Antagony” emphatically grants an intimate glimpse into the psyche of the band’s founder’s past: “I somehow associate a lot of loneliness with this album. Although I wasn’t lonely at all back then, in any relationship. But this feeling rises up in me when I think of the album.” The re-release on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of “Antagony” shows how intense a song by LORD OF THE LOST sounds with acoustic piano accompaniment: “Love Is Not Enough” in the piano version emphasizes the emotional side of the band and can be found among other fantastic extras on the second CD of the re-release. The “Philiae Demo 2002” of the iconic, rousing “Revelation 13:18” allows the listeners to jump back in time and get an impression of how a song can develop over the years. After all, Chris wrote the original version at the age of only 17! The unique Lady Gaga cover of “Bad Romance” (for Chris one of the “best-written songs ever”) is completed by seven instrumental versions of “Antagony” tracks. They show the musically sophisticated sound spectrum of LORD OF THE LOST. The effect of “Antagony” is unbroken even after ten years and can easily be seen as a timeless classic
