LORD OF THE LOST will bring a glamorous party between Glam Rock and Metal to Eurovision Song Contest 2023, when they will represent Germany in Liverpool with the title track of their current #1 album Blood & Glitter. In a show with multiple great artists from many different musical genres at the German preliminary shows, the band got by far the most votes in the public voting.

LORD OF THE LOST to their fans and everyone that took part in the show: BLOOD & GLITTER is “Our song for Liverpool! THANK YOU, for everything! We are not the best band in the world (they already exist), but we are the band with the best fans in the world: YOU!

Thanks also to everyone who made this show possible. Since there are too many names, summarized: NDR, ARD, Bildergarten TV, everyone orbiting in the orbit of this event and our crew! And greatest respect, thanks and love to you: Anica Russo, René Miller, Will Church, Patty Gurdy, Trong, Frida Gold, Lonely Spring and Ikke Hüftgold. From day 1 of the rehearsals we lived the spirit of the ESC: UNITED BY MUSIC. With each other – not against each other.”

In 2023, German genre-fusing visionaries LORD OF THE LOST are jumping from one highlight to the next! The appearance at Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in Liverpool on May 13, 2023 is another huge highlight in the band’s career. The year began with their first-ever #1 debut on the Official German Album Charts with their new album, Blood & Glitter, followed by a completely sold-out club tour throughout Germany, and will continue on to support Iron Maiden again on their upcoming European tour. LORD OF THE LOST will also appear at several major festivals throughout Europe through the rest of the year and recently announced further shows.

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 all the way from start to finish – thus completely bypassing ballads. The hard-hitting dancefloor 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.
