In a recent instagram post promoting their new single ‘One Last Song’, Germany’s Lord of the Lost confirmed that they are willing to compete at Eurovision again in the future.
The heavy metal rockers took a disappointing last place finish with ‘Blood And Glitter’ in May, but it doesn’t seem to have put them off from throwing their hat back into the ring.
As well as confirming their willingness to try again, the post also revealed that the band entered their current single into the German final in 2022, but failed to reach the final line-up. The statement implies that German bosses weren’t keen on taking rock or metal to Eurovision, with the band referencing fan favourite Electric Callboy’s ‘Pump It’ – another rock-heavy entry that didn’t make the cut.
The band also made a swing for UK commentator Graham Norton, who wasn’t their biggest fan on final night. Norton said of their performance:
“I just want the nurse to put me back to bed now after that. Isn’t he old enough to know better?”
Here’s Lord of the Lost’s revealing statement in full:
Fun fact about our current video and single ‘One Last Song’:
With this song we applied for the German Finals for the 2022 ESC in Turin. If you remember, in 2022 it was not part of the German ESC concept to have rock or metal be part of the competition, so we did not make it to the German Finals back then. Same thing happened with Pump It” by our colleagues of @electriccallboy. Besides a basic studio version of our song, we also produced a ruff acoustic demo, which you can actually hear on our ESC Edition of the ‘Blood & Glitter’ album.
Well, one year later, Euro-fate played in our cards with the ‘Blood & Glitter’ song itself then.
What a ride, what a great time. Euro-fans: be sure we will try to compete again in the future! Sorry, @grahnort, we know you despise us – your inadequate comment on air didn’t go unnoticed.
