Lord Of The Lost are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of goth metal and dark rock and this is a review of their 2018 double album "Thornstar" which will be released in August by Napalm Records.
Aggressive screams which also add in a touch of black metal starts off the album along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later while the synths gives the songs more of a symphonic feeling as well as the clean guitars adding in elements of goth rock and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the riffs also bring in a lot of modern metal elements along with some growls also being used at times as well as some touches of industrial also being added into some parts of the songs and some tracks also bring stringed instruments onto the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the music also mixes in elements of darkwave and dark rock along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can also be heard as well as the slow riffs mixing in doom metal influences and clean playing is added onto the closing track.
On this recording Lord Of The Lost make a return back to their heavier mixture of goth metal and dark rock, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon the myth of a doomed high society.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from lord Of The Lost and if you are a fan of goth metal and dark rock, you should check out this double album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Halo" "Naxxar" "In Darkness in Light" and "Voodoo Doll". 8 out of 10.
