With their Swan Songs-series LORD OF THE LOST showcase their ability to create fascinatingly heavy classical music. This is the second time the Hamburg-based dark rockers have conjured their music with an ensemble album in such grandiose style. Their upcoming masterpiece titled “Swan Songs II” will be released October 6th on Napalm Records and will feature some of the finest Dark Rock-sinfonia coated by dramatic arrangements with a chamber orchestra. Now the band fronted by charismatic mastermind Chris Harms has unveiled first details about their hotly anticipated record “Swan Songs II” including the cover artwork, track listing and an initial album teaser.
“You could say Swan Songs is some kind of a side-project for us, but “Swan Songs II” is predominated with 10 brand new songs so we would like to emphasize its independence as a main album,“ vocalistChris Harmsexplains. “After our show at Gothic meets Classic and when we started to re-arrange our songs with a symphonic orchestra in 2014 for the first Swan Songs release back in early 2015, this album turned out as a huge success. Sold out shows, many emotions and tears behind, on and in front of the stage, it’s been a very touching record for us & our fans, so that kept motivating us as well as in our creative freedom to release the next chapter of new songs you won’t hear as normal rock versions, and what should become “Swan Songs II”.“
