Lord Of The Lost Announces New Live Release

After dropping their most successful record to date, entitled "Judas," (#2 German album charts) this summer, genrefluid visionaries Lord Of The Lost are back with another treat to underline its inimitable live presence: the almost two-hour streaming concert known as Sinister Summer Stream will be released under the name "The Sacrament Of Judas" on BluRay, DVD and CD on December 10, 2021 via Napalm Records.

On July 3, 2021, fans of the band were able to experience some brand new songs from the recently released chart-topping record "Judas" live as a streaming event for the first time. The Sacrament of Judas transports this enormous live energy, which tracks like "Priest", "For They Know Not What They Do" and "The Gospel of Judas" prove.

The dark guitar riffs and fierce drum solos from "Six Feet Underground" show the extraordinary musical skills of each band member. Besides the explosive musical outbursts, there are also quiet moments, such as the elegiac "Euphoria" or the soulful ballad "My Constellation", which is carried by Chris Harms’ versatile and touching voice. Amid the first performance of the new songs, there is also enough room for classics from the multi-faceted discography of LORD OF THE LOST such as "Loreley", "La Bomba" and "Die Tomorrow". The show closes with a final highlight - the Duran Duran cover "Ordinary World", which brings the grandiose arc of tension to its glorious end.

Not even the pandemic can stop this band - Lord Of The Lost impressively proves that! "The Sacrament Of Judas" is an intense live experience that, even without an audience, stirs up joyful anticipation for the band's next show - then WITH an audience!

Twilight Force Founder Launches Solo Project

Black Lodge Records presents their new signing Urferd. The ambient nordic folk music project from Daniel Beckman, the man behind Twilight Force and Ages. The debut album goes under the name "Resan" and will see the light of day on April 15, 2022. You can watch a trailer for the album below.

The first album "Resan" will be released on Black Lodge Records in 2022, and is a musical odyssey in both a literal and figurative sense. The album takes the listener on a journey through dark and olden nordic forests; where strife and hardships follows in our steps, yet where the beauty and vastness of the solemn nordic landscape persists and permeates. From the album opening’s depiction of a serene morning’s dawn, to the closing track’s respite of a hearth at nightfall, "Resan" traverses a multitude of captivating musical landscapes and themes throughout its eight songs. Urferd signifies the beginning of a new and additional musical chapter for its founder and sole member, Daniel Beckman (Twilight Force, Ages), and brings a refreshing new perspective to the genre, challenging the boundaries of dark atmospheric folk music.
