Ahead of their upcoming USA performances, LORD OF THE LOST have debuted at #2 on the Official German Album Charts with their new covers album, ‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction’! This news arrives just as label mates DOMINUM also reached a new benchmark, landing at #18 on the same charts with their debut, ‘Hey Living People’.

LORD OF THE LOST wrapped up their most successful year so far by releasing their very first full covers album, featuring songs from legendary Michael Jackson, Judas Priest and Billy Idol, among others, on December 29, 2023. LORD OF THE LOST’s latest studio album of original songs, ‘Blood & Glitter’, was released exactly one year prior and entered the Official German Album Charts at #1, marking just one of many significant highlights for the band in 2023. The band also represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest finals, broke into mainstream media, joined Iron Maiden as special guests on tour for the second time, and performed countless sold-out headline shows. The #2 chart entry is the perfect finish in an exceptional year for the band.

Despite an extremely busy 2023, LORD OF THE LOST is continuing full speed ahead into 2024, with their fast-selling “15 Years of LORD OF THE LOST” tour kicking off in March. In addition, the band has plenty of big festival shows coming up in the summer and has been confirmed for two dates in the US later in the year. Secure your copy of ‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction now and make sure to get your tickets to the upcoming shows! 

Chris Harms states:          

“With the release of a covers album, we entered the chart week with absolutely no expectations at all. Our main goal in creating this album was to make ourselves happy by playing and recording a selection of our favorite songs by other artists. So, the charts were actually secondary. However, starting the year at #2 on the Official German Album Charts is sensational, phenomenal, and unbelievable! We congratulate our colleague Ikke Hüftgold on his well-deserved #1!”

A year after the release of their successful #1 charting album, ‘Blood & Glitter’ (Official German Album Charts), LORD OF THE LOST are back with a covers album, ‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction’, set to be released on December 29, 2023 via Napalm Records. The exciting new offering features plenty of genre-crossing tracks and wraps up the busiest year in the band’s history so far.

While the album is entirely composed of covers, ‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction’ confirms LORD OF THE LOST’s creative ability to make even unexpected songs their own, and further confirms their status. The covers album comes in various different formats – some of them containing a second CD with 11 covers that are already released or have been played live. The deluxe boxset includes a third CD with 10 acoustic tracks, exclusively available in this format.

‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction’ features a wide range of songs from different eras and genres performed in true LORD OF THE LOST style, all surprisingly fitting for the band and hence forming a cohesive collection of covers. Classic heavy metal track “Turbo Lover”, originally by Judas Priest, meets modern pop hits in songs such as Sia’s “Unstoppable”Bishop Briggs’ “River” and Zella Day’s “High”Ultravox’ “Hymn”, followed by Michael Jackson’s legendary “Give In To Me” and Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know”, expand the multifaceted selection even further. With added rougher elements such as heavier vocals, Bronski Beat’s captivating 80s electro pop hit “Smalltown Boy” gets a dark makeover in the hands of LORD OF THE LOST. The unit’s cover of another legendary 80s song, “(I Just) Died In Your Arms”features a guest appearance from rising singer-songwriter Anica Russo, who also took part in Germany’s ESC 2023 preliminary round Unser Lied für Liverpool (EN: Our Song for Liverpool). An emotional version of The Pretty Reckless’ “House On A Hill” closes ‘Weapons Of Mass Seduction’ with impact.

A special 2CD edition of the new covers album provides a cross-cut of covers previously released or already covered live over the course of LORD OF THE LOST’s career. Among them are the Roxette cover “The Look” feat. Blümchen – already known from ‘Blood & Glitter’ – “Children Of The Damned”, a homage to Iron Maiden, with whom LORD OF THE LOST experienced intense times during the last two years, and the cover of the Finnish ESC song “Cha Cha Cha” by Käärijä – sung by Chris Harms completely in Finnish.
