LORD OF THE LOST Release Second Video Trailer For New Album
July 2, 2021, 2 months ago
German genrefluid visionaries, Lord Of The Lost, have released a second trailer for their new album, Judas, released today (July 2nd). Check it out below.
After releasing the first single “Priest”, followed by sophomore “For They Know Not What They Do” (with nearly a combined 900k views on YouTube), the German frontrunners prove their exceptional standing as free spirits and artists once more, far away from any sort of genre boundaries and musical fetters. The recently released music video for "The Gospel Of Judas” serves as a strong statement against discrimination and oppression of any kind, further illustrating the unit’s outspoken support of the LGBTQIA+ community and related hypocrisies in society and religion.
Together, all songs on Lord Of The Lost’s Judas form a grand narrative of black and white, good and evil, and loud and quiet, that represent the band’s most innovative and mature record to date.
Pi Stoffers on the video for “The Gospel Of Judas”: "The biblical figure "Judas Iskarioth" is considered in the conventional narrative of the Bible not only as a traitor, but above all as "the outcast". Our song 'The Gospel Of Judas' is primarily about this designation, but in a social sense rather than a biblical one. While we like to boast about being tolerant, open-minded and individual, it is mainly these people who live out their individual way of loving, believing and looking, who are outcast by society.
"Why? Because there is no way to assign these people to a pigeonhole, which people desperately seek in order not to feel disoriented themselves, or to have to question them. However, we would like to question whether it is important at all to be able to categorize people, let alone oneself. The real strength lies in our diversity and individuality. We have recognized that for ourselves as a band. And with 'The Gospel Of Judas' we want to remind everyone that one's own limits only begin where one gives up one's individuality."
On Judas, Lord Of The Lost tell of this conflict from the perception of the character of Judas Iscariot, known as highly diverse, and the so-called Gospel of Judas, a paper that's said to consist of conversations between Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot and casts a different light on religious history as it's told in the Bible's New Testament.
Lord Of The Lost on Judas: “Don’t judge a book by its cover. This sentence could hardly apply any better to someone in theological history than to the figure of Judas Iscariot, who represents only one thing at first glance: Betrayal. If you take a closer look, almost endless possibilities of interpretation open up here: from "Judas the murderer" to "Judas the redeemer" and "Judas the actual martyr", who, if you believe in it, could only find room in hell for his salvific betrayal after dying for what he did, in complete contrast to Jesus Christ. This field of tension and the apocryphal writings of the "Gospel of Judas" are the basis for a double album that not only illuminates the dark and light side of history, but above all the grey areas in between, in which we move emotionally and ideologically throughout our lives and try to find our place.”
