German genre-fluid visionaries Lord Of The Lost return with their seventh studio album, Judas – which will be available from July 2nd, 2021. With this sophisticated offering, conceptualized as a double record from the very beginning, the five-piece are cementing their position as exceptional artists that can’t be pigeonholed once more and have undeniably reached the next level with their most innovative and mature record to date. These gothic gods will be playing at HRH Goth later this year amongst the likes of My Dying Bride, Jayce Lewis, and Fields of The Nephilim.
Not only is the sound massive, but Lord Of The Lost impressively deliver Judas physically as well. The album will be available as a limited deluxe box, ear-book, 2-CD media-book, 2-CD sleeve-pack, 2 x 2 LP gatefold recycled vinyl, double music cassette as well as a digital version.
As the overall topic, Lord Of The Lost detail the perception of the character of Judas Iscariot, known as highly diverse, and the so-called Gospel of Judas, a paper that’s said to consist of conversations between Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot, and casts a different light on religious history as it’s told in the Bible’s New Testament. Lord Of The Lost has never been that type of creative force that’s pinned to any specific genre and has succeeded in surprising fans and critics with their nonconformism repeatedly over the years. With their new album JUDAS, Lord Of The Lost not only manage to thematically blur the lines between good and evil and put the so-called ‘salvific treason’ into a harmonious soundscape unlike anything heard before. They also demonstrate that they have matured both musically and lyrically – truly an opus magnum!
