Germany’s chart-topping Lord Of The Lost announce the release of their new live album and DVD/BluRay, “LIVE at W:O:A”, out August 2nd, 2024, via Napalm Records! Featuring strong live versions of 16 original hits and two cover songs performed together with German 90s pop sensation Blümchen, “LIVE at W:O:A” was filmed and recorded during the band’s first-ever performance on the Wacken main stage, as “deadliners” after the iconic headliner Iron Maiden (with whom Lord Of The Lost has shared the stage on two European tours). Tens of thousands of fans from all over the world celebrated in front of the stage late into the night with the band, which vocalist Chris Harms describes as “a dream come true”.

On the DVD version of “LIVE at W:O:A”, the particularly energetic and dynamic camera work emphasizes the extreme energy of a Lord Of The Lost concert, as the band performs a balanced set full of surprises. Today, the band reveals a live version of “Drag Me To Hell”, a fan favorite that has over 2.2 million video views on the original version. 

Lord Of The Lost topped the Official German Album Charts with their previous albums (Blood & Glitter landing at #1 and Weapons Of Mass Seduction at #2 on the Official German Album Charts), and the band’s career has skyrocketed in recent years, bringing Lord Of The Lost to the attention of much larger audiences and to huge stages. To celebrate the release off their new offering “LIVE at W:O:A” the band teamed up with Metal Hammer UK recently for an extra-special bundle cover with a limited amount of 300 issues worldwide.

“LIVE at W:O:A” blends old fan favorites (such as “Drag Me To Hell” and “Loreley”) and hits from newer releases, including the title track “Blood & Glitter” as well as the Roxette cover “The Look” from the #1 charting latest studio album Blood & Glitter (Official German Album Charts). Blümchen’s legendary version of Paso Doble’s “Herz An Herz” is another entertaining addition.

Breaking the charts and playing the main stage at Wacken are just some of Lord Of The Lost’s many 2023 highlights – the band represented Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest finals in Liverpool, performing to more than 150 million live viewers, and received plenty of attention from huge mainstream media outlets simultaneously. Lord Of The Lost even performed for King Charles III, sold out several headline shows and played many other big festival stages alongside the riveting Wacken performance.

15 years of band history, over 500 shows in nearly 40 countries, 8 studio albums, 3 ensemble albums with orchestra and close to 60 music videos – Lord Of The Lost is a creative machine that has paved its own way through the musical landscape over the years, without ever being stuck to just one genre or scene. Successor to the electrifying covers album “Weapons Of Mass Seduction” (2023, #2 on the Official German Album Charts), “LIVE at W:O:A” might well be Lord Of The Lost’s last release as a five-piece, as the band gained an official sixth member in spring 2024. It is clear that following their busiest, most successful times as a band so far, Lord Of The Lost is better than ever and still moving forward full-speed.
