New Releases: July 2, 2021 – Lord Of The Lost

Lord Of The Lost Judas


Judas is Lord Of The Lost’s seventh studio album. It is a double album, which is 24 tracks deep and is split into Damnation and Salvation. The theme surrounding the album is the character of Judas Iscariot and telling his story in a different way to what people are accustomed to.

Judas is the first album since 2018’s Thornstar. Lord Of The Lost are good at doing a little of a lot of different things in metal. This helps keep them from being pigeonholed as just as a Goth band or any other label that may have been attached to them over the years. Could you label them a Goth band strickly because of their look, or previous album? Sure, but it isn’t the only thing they do.

The best part of this release is the sheer size. The worst part? Is the sheer size. There is so much here to take in. The album is great sonically and from a compositional side of things, they’ve really stepped it up. The problem, if you see it as such, is there is so much here to absorb. 

Songs off of this release have made my Patron curated best of 2021 playlist. The songs are really strong, and more than one has won over my Patrons.

If you have never listened to the band before, this is a great time to get familiar with them. It ticks off all of the right boxes. Judas is really an amalgam of a lot of great things they’ve done in the past. So they’re taking what’s worked previously and combining it. Plus, they’re doing a great bit of experimenting as well. They’re tieing everything together over these two dozen songs and giving you a sonic buffet to take in.  If you’re already a fan, this album is just going to help you drive home what you’ve been telling your friends all along. It is the perfect storm, from a song standpoint, and it just sounds good sonically.

Here is Lord Of The Lost with the track "The Gospel Of Judas".
