Genre-Fusing Visionaries LORD OF THE LOST Release New Single “The Heartbeat Of The Devil”

German genre-fusing LORD OF THE LOST just released “The Heartbeat Of The Devil”, originally from their latest album JUDAS (#2 German album charts), and second single from their upcoming EP of the same name, out May 6, 2022 via Napalm Records. “The Heartbeat Of The Devil” is a 80s pop inspired dark piece of art that hits with its emotional impact created by vocalist’s Chris Harms nostalgic tone and an impeccable instrumentational soundscape.

The Heartbeat Of The Devil EP repeatedly solidifies LORD OF THE LOST as visionaries unafraid to express themselves outside of the norm. Their nonconformism is undoubtedly a key point of their attraction and distinction, and their sophisticated sonic universe sets them apart from all other bands in the genre. LORD OF THE LOST will shortly embark on a European tour with icons Iron Maiden.

The new EP begins with the single version of “The Heartbeat of The Devil”, and closes with a striking piano version of the same song. Rounding out the center of the EP are three cover versions of iconic songs: “Children Of The Damned” by Iron Maiden, “Judas” by Lady Gaga and “Wig In A Box” from famed rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. These iconic songs are reinvented and transformed by the dark atmosphere of LORD OF THE LOST’s trademark sound.

LORD OF THE LOST on The Heartbeat Of The Devil:

“With the pandemic and the unplanned free time – you can spontaneously record three cover versions of songs that move you at the moment. But why these three songs? “Judas” by Lady Gaga should be self-explanatory due to the title overlap with our current album. “Children Of The Damned” is a nod to our summer tour hosts Iron Maiden, who booked us as a support band. And “Wig In A Box”… well, if you don’t know the movie musical ‘Hedwig And The Angry Inch’, you should definitely change that. We saw the movie one day and one of us yelled, ‘let’s cover that song!’ – and as it always is with us, every spontaneous idea is put into action. Or at least it’s tried.”
