Lord Of The Lost are continuing their success-story with their new album. „From The Flame Into The Fire“ is harder, more epic, more versatile, more melodic and more unpredictable... to sum it up: it is bigger than anything the band has previously released. Available as album CD, deluxe 2CD and strictly limited fan box.
The sky is the limit! The title of Lord Of The Lost's new album, „From The Flame Into The Fire“, can be taken quite literally. This time around, the band cranks everything up to 11, as if to show that the previous outings have been mere warm-up exercises for this relentlessly entertaining romp into the fires of hell. The programmatic opener „Fists Up In The Air“ already quite effectively fuses Queen-style opera-pathos with Metal-attacks of the heftier kind and prepares for a way heavier take on the trademark Lord Of The Lost sound than we have been used to. When in the past, it was hard to shake the feeling that there is a beast slumbering just beneath the surface of the group's music, it has now been unleashed to go on a full blown rampage, with Lord Of The Lost clearly having fun blowing out our ear pipes with Metal-onslaught after Metal-onslaught, on top of a cornucopia of superb arrangements and catchy melodies. But that is not the only aspect where „From The Flame Into The Fire“ delivers in bucketloads, as the massive cinematic sound, emotional roller coaster rides and the sheer versatility of musical influences surpasses anything the Hamburg-based lads have been conjuring up before. Sporting a wide grin, the band dishes up a Gothic-Salsa-Metal-Crossover-juggernaut in form of „La Bomba“, a perfect example of how the unlikeliest of combinations can produce an effective and utterly addictive tune, only to move on and prove that even the heaviest Riff-monster can have hit-potential. In all the songs, there is always a catchy melody to hook itself up in your brain among all the mayhem and Lord Of The Lost do not fail to deliver on the dark atmospheric side of things, either. The new magnum opus will be released as a regular album CD and a deluxe double disc, sporting a bonus record featuring remixes and reinventions of a selection of Lord-Of-The-Lost-tunes by friends, among them Subway To Sally, Letzte Instanz, OST+FRONT, Rabia Sorda, Comte Caspar von Coppelius and Formalin, all of which manage to uncover previously unheard sides of the material. For real fans, there will also be a strictly limited box set which contains the double disc plus an assortment of exclusive content: an XL-post-card-set, a patch and a DVD containing the group's celebrated show at the 2nd Gothic Meets Klassik Festival in Leipzig, featuring a full symphony orchestra. No matter which format you choose, one thing is clear: Lord Of The Lost have never been larger, harder and more epic than on this album! Love the best and fuck the rest!
