With only 18 pairs of tickets left for HRH Goth in Leeds as London sells out, headliners Lord Of The Lost have released a stunning video for ‘Priest’ which is taken from their upcoming album Judas which hits the streets on July 2nd.
With Judas, the five-piece are set to cement their position as exceptional artists that can’t be pigeonholed – which their brand new harbinger and single “Priest” is already proof of. The very first song immediately unveils a leitmotif that runs through the whole record and serves as a uniting symbiosis for the double album, divided into two conceptual parts, Damnation and Salvation, with 24 songs in total.
Along with a highly sophisticated official video, the song draws the listener into a conflict that has lasted for thousands of centuries and is as old as mankind itself: The conflict between good and evil. On JUDAS, LORD OF THE LOST tell of this conflict from 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.
Check out the incredible lineup where Lord Of The Lost join My Dying Bride, Fields of the Nephilim, Jayce Lewis and many many more leading bands in London and Leeds on 11th and 12th September 2021. London is SOLD OUT but HRH Goth have released 18 pairs of tickets for Leeds!
LORD OF THE LOST on the new single and video: “With ‘Priest’, we dive deep into a visual world that is meant to convey the very core emotion of the upcoming album, JUDAS, to the viewer. This comes along with a story that leaves room for many means of interpretation while keeping the purpose of the album concept. The artist XELANAH shines as the protagonist here, symbolically representing the emotional tension of the figure of Judas Iscariot. That role will also appear and continue in further videos, just like you know it from, for example, AEROSMITH. The song itself manages to unite all the emotion and soundscape that makes up the album – a cinematic trailer for the ears. And even a deliberately placed GENESIS quote from the mouth of Judas himself is suddenly seen in a completely new light.”
