LORD OF THE LOST Drop New Album, Blood & Glitter & Watch the Music Video for Title Track
German genre-fusing visionaries LORD OF THE LOST are ending 2022 with a big surprise - releasing their eighth studio album, Blood & Glitter, virtually overnight on December 30 via Napalm Records. After the great success of their last album, JUDAS (#2 Official German Album Charts), and supporting metal icons Iron Maiden on both their most recent and upcoming tours, the band is ready to turn the page to the next chapter. On Blood & Glitter, the band fully embraces their deeply-rooted love for 70s glam rock visuals and the sound of the 80s. Underlined by electronic, goth and new wave musical offshoots, the German visionaries get straight to the point with their modern metal elements.
Chris Harms on the album release:
"In a time when the marketing madness for each album seems to last longer and longer, when half the album – or even more – is already known six months in advance through pre-released singles, so that the high pre-release sales generate the highest possible chart result, what it should actually be about – the pure magic of hearing a new album of your favourite band for the first time – is becoming more and more lost. We want to transport this "like the old days" feeling through this surprise release! Fuck the charts, playlist pitches and 1,000 pointless reviews in advance. What matters is what an album means in the long run, not how high its "value" is on release day."

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.
