Today, LORD OF THE LOST once again provides a music video of the utmost quality and direction, arriving just before their upcoming Christmas store livestream on November 18. With the surprise music video for "My Constellation", LORD OF THE LOST present a gripping, cinematic Christmas blockbuster that first spreads contemplation through frontman Chris Harms' mesmerizing voice before subsequently ending in a shockingly unusual case, unraveled by the expertise of famous forensic biologist Dr. Mark Benecke.
This summer marked the release of their most successful album to date, JUDAS (#2 on the German album charts), and LORD OF THE LOST is set to publish their nearly two-hour Sinister Summer streaming concert, The Sacrament of Judas, on BluRay, out December 10, 2021. Their latest video for "My Constellation" joins a great lineup of impressive videos released by LORD OF THE LOST this year. Foremost among them are the successful videos for "Viva Vendetta", of which the Hamburg-based band has released in two versions, each with a brand new respective production.
Chris Harms from LORD OF THE LOST about the new video:
„This video is so absurd, I can't even add anything to it.“

On their new offering JUDAS, LORD OF THE LOST draw 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 perspective 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 on JUDAS:
“Don’t judge a book by its cover. This sentence could hardly apply any better to someone in theological history than to the figure of Judas Iscariot, who represents only one thing at first glance: Betrayal. If you take a closer look, almost endless possibilities of interpretation open up here: from "Judas the murderer" to "Judas the redeemer" and "Judas the actual martyr", who, if you believe in it, could only find room in hell for his salvific betrayal after dying for what he did, in complete contrast to Jesus Christ. This field of tension and the apocryphal writings of the "Gospel of Judas" are the basis for a double album that not only illuminates the dark and light side of history, but above all the grey areas in between, in which we move emotionally and ideologically throughout our lives and try to find our place.”

International press quotes on JUDAS:
Spark, Czech Republic
“Judas digs to the lowest depths of human morality, lyrically touching, musically overwhelming record“
La Heavy, Spain
“The German masters of gothic metal offer us a new magnum opus that will definitely establish them as a force to be reckoned with in the international rock scene”
"JUDAS is undeniably their most accomplished work to date… The album of the summer?“
“Atmospheric, massive and incredibly powerful”
“Dark and dramatic, JUDAS could very well go on to set the gold standard for like-minded bands for years to come.”
Metal Hammer, Germany
"An ambitious large-scale project with strong moments. LORD OF THE LOST have created their own musical niche."
“An Absolute milestone”
Classic Rock, Germany
"The biblical Judas would surely have had his heavenly joy with JUDAS"
Rock It, Germany
"JUDAS is haunting, atmospheric, mostly melancholic, often incendiary dark rock cinema that really pulls out all the stops."
"It's not only the most comprehensive work in the band's history, but also the most perfect album mastermind/vocalist Chris Harms and his colleagues have ever released."
"LORD OF THE LOST continue to show their headlining potential on their seventh album."
LORD OF THE LOST blur the lines between good and evil with their magnum
JUDAS sets off with atmospheric “Priest”, followed by “For They Know Not What They Do”, making clear right from the beginning that all the songs can be experienced the most organic and vivid way: A genuine, unique choir accompanies singer Chris Harms, whose multi-dimensional voice delivers the haunting lyrics straight into the listener’s mind more strongly than ever. Songs like “Your Star Has Led You Astray” or “Born With a Broken Heart” easily manage to keep the balance between harsh vocals, the distorted sound of fuzz guitars and an overall dark atmosphere that LORD OF THE LOST is known for, whilst “Death Is Just a Kiss Away”, “My Constellation” and closing “Work of Salvation”, for example, put grand piano tunes, authentic strings and the sound of a massive organ recorded in a church in the most suitable focus.
JUDAS marks the successor of chart-topping Thornstar (2018, #6 GER), and again breathes the innovative spirit of five musicians who are far away from setting boundaries into their very own unique art. 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 manage to thematically blur the lines between good and evil and put the so called “salvific treason” into a harmonious soundscape unlike ever heard before - truly an magnum opus!
