Lord Of The Lost are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of goth metal and dark rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Swan Songs II" which will be released in October by Napalm Records.
Melodic vocals and acoustic guitars start off the album along with some symphonic and classical music elements a few seconds later while the vocals also have a touch of goth to them and a great portion of these tracks are done with a lot of orchestra style arrangements and spoken word parts are also used briefly.
While heavy guitars are mostly absent you can still hear elements of goth and dark metal and the musical style while cello's and piano's are also used at times along with a brief use of acoustic guitars and the death metal growls and black metal screams that where used on previous albums are absent from this recording.
On this recording Lord Of The Lost keep some of the darkness of goth metal and dark rock and mixes it with classical music to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Lord Of The Lost are a very great sounding mixture of goth metal, dark rock and classical music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Waiting For You To Die" "My Better Me" "We Were Divine" and "Fall Asleep". 8 out of 10.
